This is a very basic lodge in a very nice place. I will start by listing out the good things about the lodge. The food was really really good and so was the maracuya and pisco sour. The people running the lodge are very nice people and are very understanding. You will have electricity for for a while so that... More

Remember that this is an eco lodge when you book it. Not air conditioning, basic generator electricity kept to a minimum, gas lamps in the rooms, no heated water for showering. Bring lots of insect repellent. The food is collected locally so expect repetition with what's on season. Lovely little lodge in the middle of no where. In rainy season... More

I put a review of this in the wrong place. I will redo it here. This is a nice rustic jungle lodge. They generate electricity for about two hours each night around dinner time. Otherwise there is no light. The lodge is mostly screened in, and has water for showers, but it is cold and out of the river. The... More

This was a lot of fun! No electricity, no hot water, but flush toilets and a nice shower. The rooms were quite basic, yet adequate. It was like camping but on a higher and more comfortable level, with comfy beds and a fully functioning bathroom. Showering in the Amazon river water was a surprise - very soft water and the...

I went on a 3 night adventure and stayed at the Sinchicuy Lodge. My guide, Sondra, was exceptional. He was personable and spoke pretty good English. He actually grew up in a village on the Amazon river and it was obvious that he loved what he is doing. The lodge is really rustic....kind of like a "base camp" or rustic... More

We went for three days and two nights and loved it. The river was up so we went everywhere by canoe, which was great, especially nudging through flooded forests and little tributaries. The food was fairly basic but good (and plenty of it) and the room was comfortable. Three days of cold showers is not hard, particularly given how warm... More

Went with a group of people and had a great couple of days. rooms were basic but clean . A bit like going to a guide camp with electricity only in the bar area and every room provided with an oil lamp, and being called to dinner by a drum. A pair of ear plugs would be advisable just in... More

This lodge was absolutely excellent. Located about an hours boat ride from Iquitos, by the small Sinchicuy river. The facilities were basic but really clean and nice. The tour (3d/2n) was amazing, with walks in the jungle, visits to villages, nice activities, animal spotting, time for relaxing in the hammocks while drinking a beer or two. The food was quite...

We went as a family of 4- Mom/Dad and two kids (ages 3 and 5) and Grandma. We went Friday AM-Sunday PM. The lodge: 1. Rooms: need new netting to close holes into which the mosquitos enter. If you are a mosquito magnet-bring your own net to sleep under or you will be eaten alive because the lodge doesn't provide... More

My daughter and I have twice stayed at this Lodge, in April 2010 and we stayed again in April 2013. What more can I say than that having traveled from Seattle Washington and returned, and with hopes to return again in 2016 the lodge is a wonderful experience. our Eco Guide Sandro and our guide Ronnie, were so much fun,...
