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

An amazing rainforest experience. Super boat trip to get to it. Wonderful central reception, dining area and 'semi detached' lodges. We were in 2:1 with 2 twin beds and a reasonable bathroom with shower. No electricity in the rooms so we had candles and one in the bathroom. Shared balcony with hammock. Breakfasts were good consisting of breads, jams, fruit,... More

Our family of four stayed in this lodge for two nights and we wished we would have had more time there. It is a unique place to stay, rustic and beautifully built in the Amazon jungle. We stayed in adjoining twin bed rooms of the same hut, sharing a back porch from which one morning we were delighted to see... More

My husband, 22 year old daughter and I traveled to Liana Lodge in mid-May. We took a bus from Banos to Tena and from there caught a bus to Puerto Barantilla where our motorized canoe was waiting to zip us down the Arajuno River (a tributary of Rio Napo). The instructions the lodge gave us for the bus trip were... More
