Heliconia Amazon River Lodge Review
An hour and a half down the Amazon River from Iquitos, the Heliconia has some of the nicest facilities on the river. The lodge has a big thatched-roof dining hall, a conical bar building, and a blue-tiled pool. Guest rooms have screened windows, firm beds, and private bathrooms with hot-water showers; they also have electric power for an hour before dawn and four hours after dusk. Guided tours include a hike through the lodge's private reserve, a trip to a lake, piranha fishing, visits to Yagua and Bora communities, and a night-time boat ride. You may get a better rate if you book through the tour desk in the Victoria Regia Hotel in Iquitos.
