Aninga is just like it looks in the pictures, it lived up to my expectations. The rooms were private and quiet and very comfortable with a view of the jungle around and all the sounds that go with it, including the rain which doesn't distract from the experience at all. The food served in the dining room was varied and... More

We loved this place. The skill with which the lodges orchestrate the comings and goings of 100s of tourists is commendable. We fitted a huge amount into our 48 hours and - thanks to our lovely guide, Noel - saw an abundance of wildlife. High spots were arriving by boat; our early morning river trip; swimming overlooked by a howler... More

For me the experience at Aninga started with the boat ride down the river to the lodge. It was like seen out of African Queen as we occasionally passed very small villages. The Aninga complex is entirely built on concrete pads with interconnecting concrete walks. Remember it is out in a rain forest jungle where the river can flood. Our... More

This lodge is set in the jungle, so you are able to view plenty of wildlife. The rooms are actually one room cabins with a small bathroom. There is no air conditioning, only a ceiling fan, which can be uncomfortable on hot evenings. I had an allergic reaction to something in or on the pillows and woke up with an... More

I stayed at Aninga with 2 friends for 2 nights in December 2014. It was really great, we did several trips along the river in shallow bottom boats, seeing monkeys, cayman gators and other wildlife. The tour boats pick you up from the Aninga jetty, it's really convenient :-). The food was communal style, but all very healthy and we... More

Loved being in the jungle. Resort amenities were pretty solid. Liked being just a short boat ride to town and the ocean/beaches. Biggest drawback for me was the lack of air conditioning in the hotel rooms. I'd probably opt for a different resort with a bit more luxury next time. That said, if you're OK going without the 5 star... More

My husband and I stayed here in cabin #8, it was great. Hot water shower, super friendly staff, the food was fine, they made any accommodations that we requested, natural fruit drink upon arrival. We chose this lodge over Pachira; we had elevated walkways, which kept nocturnal creatures away, you can still use all that Pachira has to offer. Pachira's... More

We stayed a couple of nights, it was rainy (as you can expect in rainy forest in July!) but we were able to see the green turtles! Rooms are private, each one is a "mini house" separate from the others, the food is good, the staff very friendly. The included tours were ok. Don't expect television (is the jungle guys,... More

Screened 'treehouse' styled rooms that were clean and comfortable provide the best place to view wildlife. We had sloths, monkeys and huge iguana in the trees right outside our rooms. Food at this lodge is good too. Not fancy, but a great way to experience the jungle
