Explorama Lodge 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, which are open to the environment and extremely simple. Tiled bathrooms have cold-water showers, and beds are topped with the requisite mosquito nets; dividing walls, however, end well below the roof so you hear your neighbors. Kerosene lamps light the rooms, covered walkways, and the screened dining room where buffet meals are served. But the lodge does have electricity to power batteries at night. 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, yet longer trips that combine this with Explorama's other two lodges are the best deal.
