We spent 3 days at the Liana Lodge enjoying the activities. I definitely recommend Ceibo and the night walk where you can see spiders and other small scaring :-) animals. I would not focus a daily program on Amazoonico which is interesting, but considering the proximity to the lodge you can do it every time. I do not recommend to... More

Liana Lodge is located within a protected area of more than 4,000 acres along the mighty Napo River. The accommodations are ecological and intentionally designed to put you in harmony with nature. No electricity in rooms means guests can relax and take in the beauty of the surrounding jungle. We saw at least 25 monkeys swinging in the trees near... More

We stayed for only two nights, but that is enough to get a good impression of the rainforest. At the side of the Arajuno river you get picked up by a long canoe. Nice trip on the river to the lodge. We were welcomed by a German get. who volunteers for a year overthere. He explained us how everything works... More

Liana Lodge is such a brilliant jungle hideaway. Lets ignore the fact it sits on the Rio Napo and not the Amazon itself. The logde has made excellent use of local materials. The reception area where an introductory talk is given, has carved benches with faces on, a nice warm fire and a small library stocked with books about the... More

First some words from my wife - Amazoonica is a wild animal rehab center for recovered attempted smuggled animals or injured animals. The Liana Lodge is staffed by mostly German volunteers with local paid staff. It was started by a woman (Swiss or German) who married a quecha indiginous man and set up the lodge and rehab center to preserve... More

If you studied the reviews you see that one French couple did not care for Liana. The guy is not just a sorehead. He is exactly right about the accommodations. So, if you know you cannot be happy without air conditioning, electricity and hot water at the lavatory you really should stay in town somewhere. Liana is intentionally copied after... More

When asking the question, "Did you like Banos or Liana Lodge better?" of our group, everyone said Banos. But! No one would miss this stop: exploring the river, hiking the jungle, swimming without being devoured by the fish, eating lunch off of a leaf, and visiting a local home. Those tours are just a few of those included in the... More

This place was really beautiful, I really enjoy what it looks like : all the furnitures made out of funky trees, the fireplace, the huge dinning room, the candle atmosphere, ... The staff pays attention the each detail to make our stay unbelivable. I really enjoy the fact that we have our private guide for activities, so no need to... More

Liana Lodge seemed hard to reach at first but get good directions and it will be worth it! You need to take a boat ride out to the lodge once you reach the parking area. You will pass the Amazoonica. Look for monkeys and make sure to spend an afternoon there during your stay. Beautiful structures and cool locally carved... More

we spent 2 nights at Líana Lodge and felt quite well. You can go into the kitchen and looking how they are preparing the delicious food. You eat with candle light everything is organized. You can sit on a veranda at the shore of the river watching the wild monkeys. The tours were interesting and also made fun for our... More
