Fodor's Expert Review Amazon Yarapa River Lodge
Yarapa River, 150 km (93 miles) southwest of Iquitos, Iquitos, Loreto, Peru
Built from native wood by members of the local community, this lodge is perched at the edge of the Yarapa River, near a seasonal lake, a small "monkey island," and a village. Guest rooms are pretty basic, with wood floors and screened windows; the nicest ones have private bathrooms (cold water), whereas others share a bath house. The dining hall, under a high thatched roof, stands at the river's edge. The lodge is a 90-minute drive and a two-hour boat ride from Iquitos, and can only be visited on four- or seven-day tours, which include guides and transportation.
