Fodor's Expert Review Amazon Eco Lodge
74 km (50 miles) south of Manaus, Lago Juma, Manaus, Amazonas, 69240-000, Brazil
Twenty rustic floating cabins make up this remote lodge, one of the oldest in the Amazon, located within 337 hectares of its own reserve on Juma Lake. Highlights include great home-cooking, excellent English-speaking guides, and reliable monkey- and bird-watching. Various packages include visits to riverside communities, nature hikes through the jungle, and piranha fishing. The minimum stay is two nights and the package includes transportation to and from Manaus. Only half of the 20 rooms come with private bathrooms, and can be booked as triple or quadruples. Due to its remoteness, energy is powered by a generator and runs only from 6 pm to 6 am. The journey time from Manaus is 3–4 hours, divided between minivan and speedboat.
