I have just returned from a four night stay at hotel pirarucu Medardo Gomez is the hotel owner. Medardo welcomed me with such warmth and gusto it was wonderful. He treated me and all the guests like his closest friends and he took personal responsibility for ensuring every guest felt like royalty and they enjoyed their stay in Letitia. He... More

You will feel very welcome. This place feels more like a family hotel. The staff is very friendly, they take care of what ever you need. A funny moment here: The night I got there, while I was in the lobby one of the guys passed by me with a giant bag full fish, raised the bag to show me... More

For $80us/night I expected more than a very shabby stuffy room in a poorly ventilated somewhat shabby hotel. Inaccessible garden is an unkept shambles (seen through un openable window). Breakfast was very uninspiring. Only saving grace is people running it are quite nice. Had to give it 3 points after the receptionist managed to produce our boarding passes the evening... More

After a week upriver, this hotel was a nice luxury. Decent price for the area, a bit pricey for everywhere else. Air conditioning, cold showers, nice pool. Decent service, clean and quiet (except the suite by the street which has a balcony where people socialize. One big downside - I was trying to leave at 4:30 am for a tour... More

My flight arrived to Leticia from Bogota with no problem and I took a short taxi ride to the hotel for 7000. You can also arrange for the hotel to pick you up. I was most impressed by the friendly manner of the staff. I cannot speak Spanish, but found it easy to communicate my needs. The manager, Medardo, was... More

The sign says "your home in the amazons" and from my experience, it truly was. I did not know what to expect when heading to Leticia but my family at the Pirarucu hotel made it a great trip. Medardo (whom I now refer to as Tio Medardo), the hotel manager really made every day the best trip ever. We stayed... More

I traveled with my Family during September to the hotel, My expectations traveling to Leticia were not set on to finding a 5 star hotel experience, but rather a good base camp to come back to after a day of jungle explorations. Pirarucu fulfilled the expectations thanks to the hotel manager (Medardo), he literally went out of his way to... More

I had a great experience at Hotel Pirarucu. I reserved an air conditioned room and when I got there, it was very large with a nice view of their backyard. From my window was a view of a large mango tree that parakeets frequented in the mornings. When I arrived they welcomed me with Acerola juice and were very friendly.... More

We stayed at Hotel Pirarucu for two nights, one on either end of our trip to Puerto Nariño. The manager was very welcoming and brought us glasses of fresh juice. There didn't seem to be many guests, so we were able to negotiate the price, and were given a nice room with many more beds than we needed, air conditioning,... More
