Delfin Lodge is approximately 250km away from Iquitos, set within the Amazon Jungle. It's located on a river tributary, along with many other lodges (some incredibly more expensive than others). If you're happy with basic amenities like toilets, beds with mosquito nets and a kitchen, then this is your place. I bathed in the river which was all a part... More

We went to delpin lodge at the start of April. We paid 150 soles per person per night.There was so much water that we couldn't walk around and spent the entire time on an uncomfortable canoe. The beds also smelt of other peoples sweat and the mosquitos were out of control. Perhaps this is a good option when it's dry... More

A friend and I decided to book this trip after being approached by Diego. He was very insistent we did a review and his wish is my command. We figured a jungle trip would be the best way to explore the jungle and maximize our time around Iquitos. The lodge itself is nice and close to the river which is... More

The lodge is very basic but I definitely feel like that adds to the experience of living in the middle of the jungle. I think they have remodelled a bit since people complained about the mosquitos and make no mistake there are loads of mosquitos out in the jungle. All the beds have mosquito nets which served their purpose but... More

What can I say, our trip was amazing. The staff of the Delfin Lodge and Ecological Jungle Trips were awesome. They provided all transportation including pick up at airport, transportation by car and boat to the lodge and then back. Our guide, Commando (cool name for a guide) was very ethusiastic and knowledgable about the jungle since he grew up... More

This was our first time to Peru and we came down mainly for the Ayahuasca ceremonies. We decided to go with a combination of the jungle tour mixed with the Ayahuasca ceremonies, and we are glad we did. Our first 4 nights we had the Ayahuasca ceremonies with a very experienced medical Shaman (Jose Marin). He was very knowledgeable and... More

We really enjoyed our trip to Delfin Lodge. It was definitely very basic, but that was exactly what we wanted. It´s not a luxury tour, but adventurous and lots of fun. They were really flexible with actiities and tailored it to what we wanted and our time frame. You really felt like you were in the jungle. The food was... More

Brilliant way to see some of the amazon jungle. I went with one other friend, felt very safe and learnt so much at the hand of our guide Pecho. Very knowledgable as he was from the area! The best thing about the trip was it was very flexible so we chose what we wanted to do everyday! Learnt so much... More

As another has stated, the lodge is extremely primitive. We new that it was very basic and Alex joked that it was not a "luxury" hotel. However, we didn't expect a wet and dirty cot and no relief anywhere from the bugs. Although the reply in August 2013 says they are remodeling, there was still nothing changed when we were... More

After being duped and ripped off by a 'local tour guide' near the Belen village my girlfriend and I were wary when we were approached by Alex from Ecological Jungle Tours. We decided to give him a chance. He lead us to his office and began telling us about what we could expect if we signed on for the trip.... More
