6 Great days in Amazonia (Online review)

“My sons and I spent 6D/5N this past July (2017). We were greeted at the airport and promptly taken to the boat for the start of our trip. Manuel speaks good English so any questions you have can be effectively asked and understood. After a quick lunch at a local restaurant we made our way down to the lodge. It was a 4+ hour ride that was very nice and my sons enjoyed lying in the hammocks provided. If you have a large group they may not fit but since it was just three of us there was room on the boat. You are going against the current so its only 2 1/2 hours on the return.
We arrived at the lodge which was charming and comfortable, and has everything one would need for a great stay. The bedding has mosquito netting so your sleep is worry free. 🙂 The rooms are clean and taken care of every day.
We spent 2 nights in the jungle, taking hikes, fishing, and night canoe rides. Most of the excursions were guided by Johnny who was born and raised right there. His English is ok and I was able to understand him well enough but a little Spanish may be helpful. He was really a great guide and always so happy. Manuel was on the trip so anything we still did not understand was easily translated later. Everything was well planed out and all needed equipment was provided. Bring some nice high socks for the rubber boots to make the longer hikes more comfortable and LOTS of DEET.
We did lots of fishing and for my sons it was probably the highlight of the trip to see the variety of fish we caught. It was always a surprise to see what we pulled in.
The food was always great and we got to try many foods local to the area including all the fish we caught. Manuel’s lovely sister Maria and their mother prepared the food with care and we enjoyed every meal. Even nice hot meals on our camping tips. We miss the daily variety fresh fruit juice.
Johnny even arranged a soccer/football game for my sons to play in with some people at the local village. This was a very competitive game let me tell you. We were able to walk around the village to get an idea of local life and even relax at a store/Bar to have a beer and soda. Strangely it was the cheapest price for a beer in my 3 weeks in Peru, who knew. LOL
We ran across some suspended bridges between trees which was a pleasant afternoon and showcased a beautiful property. On the whole trip we did see many animals, and learned about this amazing place.
If you want to be near the National Park then you must invest some time getting there from Iquitos so choosing a lodge farther away was well worth it. It was also for me a better experience to be with a lodge that gets you into the jungle not just look from a distance in a speed boat or air conditioned cruise. You may as well stay home and see it on TV. Manuel and his Family/team do a great job of giving you enough comfort but still allowing you to feel and experience the jungle up close with complete safety. Thank you”
