Fodor's Review

This remote lodge is at the edge of the CONAPAC Sucusari Biological Reserve, a vast protected forest on the Napo River, 1½ hours by boat from the Explorama Lodge. It has a 1,500-foot-long, 120-foot-high canopy walkway at the nearby Amazon Conservatory of Tropical Studies (ACTS) and an informative medicinal plant garden. This is the best Explorama lodge for seeing wildlife on guided walks, canoe trips, or from the lodge itself. ExplorNapo's facilities are extremely rustic: picture kerosene-lit, thatched-roofed, open-air guest rooms with cold showers and dry latrines in separate buildings. There's a screened dining room and bar where guests can use Wi-Fi and charge batteries at night. You can also spend a night at the nearby ACTS lodge, which is deeper in the forest. The minimum stay is two nights, combined with two nights at the Explorama Lodge, but it is a better deal to book a six-night trip that includes nights at all three Explorama lodges.
