Fodor's Review

You have to travel 140 km (84 miles) up the Amazon and Yanayacu rivers to reach the Muyuna Lodge, poised at the edge of a seasonally-flooded forest; but on arrival, you can bed down in comfortable accommodations surrounded by exuberant tropical nature. Screened bungalows with river views and surrounded by trees have attractive tile bathrooms, cold-water showers, and porches with hammocks. The forest behind the lodge is lovely, too, and you can expect to see plenty of wildlife here—including cocoi herons, black-collared hawks, squirrel monkeys, and two species of dolphin—on guided hikes and on boat trips. The lodge also offers fishing tours. Kerosene lanterns provide light at night; only the dining hall, where hearty buffet meals are served, has electric lights and outlets for charging batteries for several hours each night.
