I stayed here for 4 days and nights in Nov 2012, booked through Peru-for-less. The rooms are sparse with no power or fresh water, but jungle temp showers. So if you want luxury, read no more. But if you want to experience the jungle without having to camp this is the place for you. The lodge has power from dark... More

Just wanted to share that they gave me my money back. Kind of late but thankfully they returned it. But besides this, we had an awful exprience, we lost a day looking for a solution and could have been a bigger nightmare if. Don´t know yet if they are working again.

Three days before a reservation for mid-March I received an email saying the lodge was closed due to flooding. They did offer to set me up with another guide who would take me birding and they would transfer the deposit to him. The new guide was excellent and tried his best but the money was never transferred to him from... More

On December 2013. this lodge sold me a 3 night stay for January, from the 12th to the 16th. Three days before my arrival, I was at Cuzco by that time, they sent me an e-mail saying that because of a strike and renovations, they won´t be able to receive us at the lodge. I went to their offices at... More

We spent there 3 nights. Stay was very well organised starting from the airport pick up and ending with us being transferred to the airport on the way back. Tasty lunch on the boat to the lodge. It's a 1,5 h long trip which gives an opportunity to start experiencing amazing nature. After arrival there is not much time to... More

This lodge is the oldest one in the region, and unfortunately you can tell. It was built in 1976 and it looks that did not change a thing since then. mosquito nets full of holes (taped up...), wooden walkways that are rotten away (it is safer to walk beside those walkways then on them). Apart from that, there was not... More

Josmel was a great guide, we saw lots of birds,reptiles,insects,mammals,fish,plants. He was fantastic at finding animals that the group would have miseds without him. We saw the giant River Otters, a Harpy Eagle, and he caught a white caiman. I liked the rooms without electricity, and a few candles, it was so nice to be without smart phones, ipads, and... More

It is our intent with this information to help illuminate the conditions at the Explorers Inn in an effort to improve the situation for future visitors. We are well-travelled, and prefer to stay in modest accommodations across the world— as a result, we understood that the EI would not be a five-star accommodation experience. Unfortunately, what we encountered during our... More

I have been to many places in Amazonian forest but this has been the best one. The forest around the lodge is amazing and I have never spotted so many animals in such a short time. The guide was professional and we have seen really many animals with him. Patricia (the manager) and all the stuff was extremely helpful with... More

Bearing in mind that this is in the jungle and does not advertise as a luxury resort, I was still a little disappointed with the room. The netting on the beds did not keep the mosquitoes and sandflies from slaughtering me each night, and it was not through lack of effort on my part. First night I slept in shorts... More
