Fodor's Review

You must go 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 some of the nicest accommodations available at any eco-lodge in this region. Screened bungalows that overlook the river and are 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 on the guided hikes and boat trips, including cocoi herons, black-collared hawks, squirrel monkeys, and two species of dolphin. 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.
