Tahuayo River Amazon Research Center Review

Staying at this rustic lodge inside the Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo means almost constant exposure to tropical nature. Eight monkey species live in the forest, and the Tahuayo River holds dozens of fish species, several types of caimans, and pink dolphins during part of the year. This is an Amazonia Expeditions property, and visitors combine stays here with nights at the Tahuayo Lodge. It is more spartan than its sister lodge (toilet facilities, for instance, are in a separate building); however, the quality of the food, excursions, and guides is top-notch. Each duplex has a wraparound porch for wildlife-watching, but because rooms are separated by a wall that doesn't go up to the roof, there is little privacy between neighbors. The payoffs are the wildlife and the view of the Tahuayo River.
