Liana Lodge is a boat ride from the nearest road but the rooms had hot showers and the food was excellent. Lovely location with wildlife around all the time. They lend you wellingtons for treks around the lodge. Take a torch though as you need to get from the main lodge to your room at night.

A nice place with friendly staff. You can choose tours from te menu and you get a private guide. We went on a hike and in the afternoon we searched for gold with Christian. He spoke really good german (not english). And we found gold :) (a little little bit). We liked the whole experience!

Stay at a rustic yet comfortable lodge in the heart of the Amazon for a real jungle experience! The lodge has a restaurant with a good menu & also offers numerous tours, including a tour of the animal rescue center (Amazoonico) that is run through the same organization (Selva Viva). The entire project is very sustainable & supports the local... More

It was great to spend couple of days in this lodge with the marvelous guide of Soyu, a local guide who made our visit very nice and showed us a lot about the life of his proud tribe and how to minimize our impact on the nature while keeping a good level of life It really worth the prize, so...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a round trip. If you have looked at the other reviews you will know what to expect: no electricity but you can charge your batteries at the reception. The huts are very basic but you have warm water (I was pleasantly surprised because I had expected it to be cold) -... More

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
