Fodor's Review

This comfortably rustic ecolodge owned by Amazonia Expeditions is an excellent base for experiencing the biodiversity of the rainforest, especially when combined with a stay at the company's Amazon Research Center. Its thatched buildings connected by wooden walkways are perched between the Tahuayo River and a seasonally-flooded forest, a short boat trip from the Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo. Bungalows have private, cold-water baths and electric (solar) light, but

they're packed pretty tightly, with the exception of two spacious family rooms in back. Six three-bedded rooms share a common bath house, and are mostly used by students. Daily tours led by excellent, private guides are tailored to guests' interests. Activities might include hikes or boat trips, sport fishing, riding a short zip-line through the treetops, or volunteering at one of the communities where the company supports health care and education.
