Fodor's Review

Built in 1964, this is one of Peru's original nature lodges, and it still provides rustic accommodations and access to a private rain-forest reserve. Guest rooms are in thatched long houses that are open to the environment, but beds are topped with mosquito nets. Dividing walls end well below the roof, so while rooms are private they are not soundproof and you will hear your neighbors. Kerosene lamps light the rooms, covered walkways, and the screened dining room where

buffet meals are served. Tiled bathrooms have cold-water showers. The lodge has electricity to power batteries at night and Wi-Fi is available as well. Guided walks, boat tours, and a visit to a nearby Yagua Indian village are included in the rate. The minimum stay is two nights.

Explorama Lodge Review

Explorama is a lovely place, very peaceful and calm. (Love those hammock rooms!) While there are no private facilities, the camping-out feel and the camaraderie make up for that to me.
