We stayed in Banana Lodge for 2 nights. The Lodge is a very short walk from the center of Misahualli village (or a $1 cab ride).
Rooms were nice, large and very clean, bathroom looked brand new, and the setting is beautiful, overlooking the river and the jungle.
The lodge is surrounded by a lush garden.
We stayed in the more 'expensive rooms', $15 pp including breakfast, but there are cheaper options as well.
They have free wi-fi, which is great.
The owners, Anna and Eduardo, were very kind and helpful - they arranged a 3-day jungle tour for us with an excellent guide who spoke flawless English.
We liked the vibe of the place - guests from different countries coming and going, sharing their stories around the fire pit, different languages spoken all at once.
During our stay Anna and Eduardo were hosting a few young volunteers from Germany and a Russian family interested in shamanic ceremonies, which Anna helped them organize.
I wish we could stay longer!
