Fodor's Review

This lodge has won sustainable tourism awards thanks to its use of solar power, composting program, and community conservation efforts. Built from native wood by local Indians, the lodge is perched at the edge of the Yarapa River, near a seasonal lake, a small "monkey island," and a village. Guest rooms are pretty basic, with wood floors and screened windows; the nicest ones have private bathrooms (cold water only), whereas others share a bath house. The dining hall, under a high thatched roof, stands at the river's edge. The lodge is a 90 minute drive and a two-hour boat ride from Iquitos, and can only be visited on four- or seven-day tours, which include guides and transportation. Because it is in a fairly populated area, it doesn't have as much wildlife as some lodges.
