Tahuayo Lodge Review

This network of thatched buildings perched between the Tahuayo River and a seasonally-flooded forest lies just outside the Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo. It is owned by Amazonia Expeditions, a company which helps guests observe and understand the surrounding wilderness while supporting conservation and the development of local communities. Comfortably rustic 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. The lodge organizes tours that are led by excellent guides and tailored to guests' particular 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.
