Fodor's Review

This sustainable floating lodge, set in the middle of a tributary, offers the only way for visitors to explore the Mamirauá Reserve, led by biologists in tandem with local guides from the communities. The result is a special Amazon experiences. Rustic cabins are simple but spacious, with porches and hammocks overlooking the water. Activities include sunrise boat trips, jungle treks, fishing trips, and visits to a local community. While some tours are done in groups, you will also be allocated a private guide to take you exploring by canoe. The flood season (April–July) is the best time to spot wildlife, as animals seek shelter in the canopies of submerged trees and wait for the water to go down. Visitors are also given the chance to interact with researchers from different programs during panels and trips to floating stations. The lodge aims to be fully run by the local communities by 2020. Inquire about special packages, including jaguar tracking expeditions, bird-watching, and photography excursions.
