Let me start with the positive thing: the view is wonderful and the area is fantastic. However, you will get this too if you stay somewhere else. My advice is: do not stay at Jungle river lodge. This place is run by Ronald and his father (though the latter wasn't there when we were there). We made an appointment that... More

Took a chance on a flyer we saw and we were overwhelming glad we chose to do it. The ride up really lets the "off the grid" scenario set in. As soon as we pulled up the hotel was situated in a marvelous spot over looking the river. Hammocks, a bar, hiking trails, zipline, rafting and swimming. We were staying... More

If you get the chance to stay here, take it! It is a truly amazing place to stay in an amazing location. The river is roaring right next to your room but in a comforting way. I did the zipline tour which was really fun. Our guide showed us all these plants you could taste and eat, we even ate... More

Rafting was awesome, everything we had expected from it; it hadn’t rained a lot, so the river was not super wild. Rafts were in good condition, transport also in good condition. We felt welcomed very well as a large group of 12 persons, we could raft all together in one run which was fun. The reception with lunch and coffee... More

Highly reccomend!! The hotel is beautiful and situated on a stunning river, which you can swim in when the water is low. Stayed in the dorm room which was large and comfortable, although no fan. Food was very good. We went White Water Rafting which was incredible and great fun. The guides were fantastic and really look after us. All... More

I recently stayed there with a handful of friends from Utila. They picked us up at the ferry in La Ceiba, brought us to the lodge and immediately greeted us on arrival. The rafting trip: The river was a bit slower then usual, given it's not quite rainy season yet - however it was still flowing enough for a great... More

After a horrific travel day before arriving at Jungle River Lodge to go on their rafting tour it was great to see such a lovely treehouse style hostel to stay in. The rooms were big and beds were clean. Ended up staying here for an extra two days as the location on the river was just spectacular! The owners made... More

Everyone should go to Honduras, and once there, get to Jungle River Lodge. Comfort, good food, great hosts, swimming, ziplining, hiking, rafting and wonderful views. We were met at the ferry dock at La Ceiba (having spent a wonderful week in Utila); Dennis and Santos piled our luggage in the jeep and off we went, from shore to mountains in... More

We stayed up the road, but walked down to Jungle River Lodge for a canopy tour and zip lining. Our two guides were safe, and knowledgeable, taking time to explain to us local flora and fauna. I didn't know they didn't take credit cards for the zip line, and offered to run back to our hotel and get cash. They... More

Excellent location, very friendly staff and stunningly exciting canopy/zip line tour with very knowledgeable and professional guides. Roberto rules!! The river is beautiful. However the rooms are disgusting, run down and heavily overpriced. When visiting the 'jungle' you do not expect luxury, but you could expect a decent room. The hot water is cold, the sink is leaking, the waste... More
