Fodor's Expert Review ExplorNapo Lodge

On Napo River, 160 km (100 miles) east of Iquitos , Iquitos, Loreto, Peru

This remote lodge at the edge of a private biological reserve, three hours by boat from Iquitos, has a 1,500-foot-long, 120-foot-high canopy walkway, a medicinal plant garden, and more wildlife than the other Explorama lodges. ExplorNapo's facilities are quite rustic: picture kerosene-lit, thatch-roofed, open-air guest rooms with cold showers and dry latrines in separate buildings, but there's a screened dining room and bar where guests can use Wi-Fi and charge batteries at night. The minimum stay is two nights, but it's very expensive; the best deal is to book a six-night trip that includes nights at all three Explorama lodges.
