Reviewed 11 December 2013

Germano and Fabiola are amazing!
Fabiola's food is great!
The small details make a huge difference and it was a factor for us to really like this place!
Tours were great....attention was outstanding... Germanos' knowledge of the area was eyeopening....our "lodge" was really comfortable.
Thanks for an amazing time!

We just came back from our stay at Tariri. It was absolutely wonderful. The place is owned and run by Germano and Fabiola, along with their extended family.
Germano is a fantastic guide, extremely knowledgeable about the Amazon and the area. The excursions that he led by boat or the walk through the forest were very informative and fun. He knows all about the plants, the animals, and the communities in the area.
Fabiola took care of the hotel and the cooking. The food was well-presented and very tasty. She bakes and cooks from local food sources, mostly fish. She takes special care to bake bread in the shape of jungle animals and flowers. The hotel is kept very clean and well-maintained.
The accommodations are rustic wood cabins with straw roofs. The cabins are on stilts to keep them above the water during the flood season. They are served by walkways that are also on stilts. Each cabin has a bathroom with a toilet, a sink, and a shower. The sleeping area is spacious and has an electric fan. Our cabin had a queen size bed and a single bed. Some of the cabins have more beds, up to one queen and three singles, so they should be better for families. The cabins have lots of small windows that bring in the view of the trees. Each window has a wood pane to keep the light out if you wish, and mosquito net to keep the bugs out. We kept our windows open at night to let the air in and to listen to the sounds of the jungle. In front of each cabin there is a small verandah with a hammock.
The lodge doesn't have swimming pool, but the lake serves the purpose. There is a long sloped walkway that continues into the water, so you can enter the water through there or through the floating dock. Bring plenty of sunscreen and a hat. Most of the excursions are by boat out in the sun.
There are very few mosquitoes in the area, but bring bug repellant anyway. Some of the excursions go through areas that might have bugs.
Tariri provided service beyond our expectations and fantastic value for our money.

This is a family run lodge on the Rio Negro. It is run by Germano and Fabiola and their family. The warmth and hospitality of this lodge are evident from the moment you contact them via email and it only gets better when you get there. The cabins are rustic, but perfectly good for being out in the forest. The activities offered are good fun, interesting, relaxing and educational. Seeing animals in the Amazon forest isn't easy and it's not like in the Pantanal. If you want to see animals, then you must go to the Pantanal. Nevertheless, we saw sloths, monkeys, all kinds of birds, caimans and river and pink dolphins. The lodge is located a couple of hours from Manaus and feels much farther away. It's a perfect location, really. Fabiola's food is off the charts delicious. She bakes at least three times a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner cakes!!! The mains are primarily fish, which is super fresh obviously. The sides are terrific. Her cooking was some of the best we had in Brazil. Overall, the lodge is also one of the best value deals we experienced in Brazil. Bonus: There are no mosquitoes because of the colder waters of the Rio Negro.

Difficult to know where to begin! As with many other reviewers, we found Tariri to be an incredible experience and so much more than we had anticipated at the outset. The location and accommodations surpassed our expectations, but what really makes this place exceptional is the warmth and service provided by Fabiola, Germano and the rest of the family members who make up the staff of Tariri, not forgetting 2 delightful children. Food was terrific, mostly based on local fish. Transportation arrangements to/from Manaus were handled very efficiently. The lack of internet service is a blessing, as this place is not geared to the big city lifestyle but rather as a refuge from the normal stresses of living in a city environment. A big plus - no mosquitoes!
Plan to return!!

Admittedly, I was a bit reluctant to book at the rustic accommodations of Tariri Amazon Lodge, thinking I preferred a place with more amenities, such as a pool. I am so happy we went with Tariri! The small setting (10 guest rooms), family feel (a lodge but also a family's home) and incredible hospitality of Germano, Fabiola and the staff are something I will certainly remember...more than whatever I thought I needed from a different Amazon tourist-trap hotel.

The daily activities are great and Clay Milton was a very informative guide who lives in Acajatuba Village, so he knows what he's talking about, even in multiple languages! The rooms are small cabins, elevated by stilts for the rainy season, but are clean and comfortable with private bathrooms and shower, as well as electricity. The hammock at your cabin and elsewhere around the lodge are a nice, relaxing touch. I do wish there was a little something to do at night after dinner, maybe something cultural, a nature talk or music. The evening ends a bit too early in my opinion (except for the night you go out in the boat to look for caiman.)

Three meals per day are served in the open air dining room and this food is amazing! Fabiola and her kitchen crew make wonderful entrees and salads and there is truly something for everyone. Fresh juices, homemade desserts, individually wrapped bon-bons and breads in the shape of Amazon river fish...it's incredible!

We're very happy with our Tariri stay! I would also recommend the Meeting of the Waters tour on your way back to Manaus. Thank you Germano, Fabiola and Milton!

A wonderful family run lodge on a quiet part of the Rio Negro. It feels like you are further into the jungle than you actually are then you realise that there aren't many birds or monkeys around suggesting the presence of humans around. Comparisons with the Pantanal are unfair but there was far more wildlife when we went to the Rio Napa in Ecuador. Treat this as an Amazon experience rather than a wildlife experience and you will have a great time. The excursions are varied and interesting and you will have plenty of time for lying around in hammocks. I did find it a little odd that when going on jungle hikes the lodge's 2 dogs ran on ahead no doubt scaring anything off that happened to be around. The remains of an armadillo suggested that a jaguar or other big cat had been in the vicinity so more stealth and patience was probably required. That said we did see sloths, caiman, squirrel monkeys, the occasional osprey and some egrets and herons. The hospitality was first class and the food was fabulous - the best I ate in Brazil. However if you don't like fish you will have a problem as choices are limited and fish is abundant. Watch out for the Yellow and blue macaw and the two parrots that try to pinch your breakfast! The huts are clean but basic but that all adds to the amazon authenticity. No mosquitos!

The warmest reception we have received in Brazil! The lodge is a family business and is the vision of hosts Fabiola and Germano. It is set amongst the banks of the river in complete peace and tranquility. The lodgings are wooden huts on stilts with fully functioning bathrooms, showers and comfortable beds.

The food is served three times daily and is amongst the best we had while in Brazil, all lovingly hand made by Fabiola and her team.

Activities arranged by the exceptional tour guides include piranha fishing, a jungle walk, caiman spotting at night, a visit to a local village and many trips along the river in motorised canoe boats. And there is plenty of time to relax on a hammock and take in the views!

Admin was great and very efficiently dealt with by Mabel, Fabiola's sister. We were picked up at our hotel in Manaus and taken by car and boat to Tariri.

On the way back Mario the driver and guide even arranged for us to see the meeting of the waters which is about 20 minutes by boat from the port in Manaus.

Overall the level of service was excellent, everyone went out of there way to make it an unforgettable experience. We would recommend Tariri to anyone!
