I was lucky enough to stay at the Caiman House Field Station in the Summer of 2013 for about two months! I wasn't sure what to expect for living accommodations, as this was my first trip outside of the U.S. My time at Caiman House was nothing short of spectacular! I was surprised at the level of comfort the staff... More

The Caiman House is an incredibly welcoming and friendly place. The staff are polite and knowledgeable, the food is consistently excellent, and it's a major hub of village activity so by staying there you get to observe and participate in village life. Definitely take the opportunity to go catch caiman with the caiman research team! I can certify that the... More

I stayed at the Caiman House Field Research Station for 2 months during the summer of 2013. I can not express how grateful I am for the staff at the Caiman House, they provided me with many up close and personal experiences with an extensive list of wildlife that I would have never seen on my own. I always felt... More

I have visited Caiman House several times as a tour leader, naturalist, scientist, and educator, and I have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly, highly skilled, and most knowledgeable, the accommodations are very comfortable, and the food is excellent (never in short supply even for me or for my students who are known to compete for the delicious...

You don't expect luxury in the wilds of Guyana but you do expect a nice friendly welcome, basic but comfortable and clean accommodation and enough food. This place offered none of these. We stayed in a room in the main lodge and it wasn't much better than the guest cottages. The food was the worst we tasted in Guyana and... More

As part of a group, the singles among us were shunted to the workers' quarters next to garbage burning. Three of us shared the bathroom 40 feet away where the toilet did not always flush. No privacy in the room. I had little boys peeking in the first afternoon. The Japanese call their whaling research as do the Amerindians at... More

I was with a large birding group and unfortunately was placed in the guest cottages outside the main lodge. The three attached rooms shared a shower and toilet in a separate building outside about 40 feet away. There was no privacy so everyone could see your bathroom activities thru screens. The garbage for the lodge had been burned in piles... More

Caiman house had the difficult task of being the last stop on a 10 day trip around the rainforest but ended on a real highlight. Fully integrated with the local village with expert excellent guiding being provided by the Amerindians. There are usually a number of researchers on hand at dinner time to discuss the local and national issues which... More

We only stayed here 1 night of an 11 night stay in the rainforests of Guyana but it was an activities packed 2 days mostly revolving around the river. The stay included a night trip on the river with Kenneth, our guide. We had excellent views of a wide variety of birds and wildlife including boas, boat billed herons, giant... More

We only spent one night at the Caiman House and we wish we would have planned another day or two. We stayed after a 5-day river trip arranged by Rupununi Trails…so we arrived by River. It was about a mile walk to the lodge, slightly up hill, on a crushed stone path. It was a really hot afternoon and we... More
