Was visiting my daughter during her school break in Cusco, and made Amazon jungle experience a side trip during the visit. We did a 3 day 2 night stay at Heliconia Amazon River Lodge. I was expecting something really rough, but this had nice, clean 'basic' rooms, with flush toilet, shower, and electricity in the evening. The food was good... More

Heliconia is like a cool camp for adults (and kids if you have them!). We were there 3 nights/4 days and had a wonderful time. The activities were a lot of fun- they keep you busy, but even getting up for 5:30 AM bird watching is worth it. Guest rooms were comfortable despite only having electricity a few hours a... More

We just got back from visiting our daughter, who is working in Peru. While there, we decided to do some sightseeing with her, and a trip to the Amazon was part of it. After reading some good reviews about Heliconia Lodge, we decided to give it a try. We're glad we did. The lodge itself is located about an hour... More

Heliconia is a wonderful secluded amazon lodge right on the river side hidden in the rain forest trees. It is beautiful and quiet. Wonderful food, amazing tours, beautiful relax area around the pool. Sleeping with the nature sounds right outside your door. Amazing experience. Great guides and great customer care. We had the best experience ever!

I went here with my 16 year old. We did night and day walks in the jungle, pirana fishing, bird & animal viewing and a jungle village tour. Our guide was great and knew all the flora and fauna, and being from the area, knew all the locals as well. There was ample time to relax in the pool between... More

I booked my trip through Viator, which offered a 3-day/2-night itinerary inclusive of airport and boat transfers to the lodge. With the help of my excellent English-speaking guide, Victor, I did everything on the itinerary and more! My room at the lodge was spacious and clean, with all of the amenities I needed. They provided shampoo, soap, a poncho, flashlight,... More

My wife and I visited with our 17 year old daughter and had an unexpectedly perfect stay! Imbedded in the rainforest on the banks of the Amazon River, the location is . . . well, beautiful just doesn't begin to describe the natural beauty of the rainforest or the awesome power of the Amazon. Heliconia is authentic and isolated, and... More
