This place was absolutely perfect for the jungle/far away experience. Ron and Al the owners were fun and very accommodating. Their staff was so very nice and the meals they had available were fresh and delicious. We had our own little lodge with open views so we could listen and see all the wildlife around us. Great stay!

I picked Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge based on the location and great reviews, and was really pleased with my choice. I stayed there with my sister in February, and we had a wonderful time. As other reviewers have mentioned, Ron and Al, and all of the staff, were very helpful and attentive, and were really fun to hang out with... More

Macaw Bank is very out of the way. Make sure if you are driving to have mud tires. But once you get there you will love it! Beautiful grounds and comfortable lodges. The food is a bit pricey but the quality is worth it. Ron & Al go out of their way to make your stay relaxing and comfortable. Take... More

We both enjoyed our stay at this lodge and really appreciated how this niche of the environment compliments the world around it. All of us know that these places end up being a mix of the physical environment and the flavor of those who make a living running these establishments. The physical location and layout of this facility is in... More

Just spent five nights at this lovely venue. Al and Ron were perfect hosts, serving great anecdotes and food. Staff is very helpful and Jason offers an enlightening night walk into the jungle. Don't miss the tubing in the river adjacent to the property.

The excellent reviews of Macaw Bank helped me choose this place over the many lodges available in the area. We were not disappointed! I loved falling asleep surrounded by the sounds of the forest, and the brief nightly rain showers. The cabanas were simple, uniquely furnished, truly eco-friendly, and built into the jungle. The meals were excellent- fresh local ingredients,... More

The Macaw Bank Jungle lodge is a once in a lifetime experience. If you are seeking a 5 star fancy resort, this is not the place for you. But if you are after extremely comfortable accommodations in a beautiful setting with gracious hosts, you can do not better than Macaw Bank. The owners Ron and Al are exceptional people with...

Al and Ron and their team are all great people, and I think that's what makes this place so special. By essentially applying a 'people filter' to their staff and to local guides, any interaction you have is going to be good. For example, we had not intended to go on the ATM cave tour, but Al suggested that it... More
