After a 100km ride from Iquitos up the Amazonas I arrived directly at this beautiful lodge.
Thanks to the highwater because of the passed rain season I did not even need to walk.
The lodge an architectural well planned and build retreat.
I stayed 2 nights and 3 days. After Easter I was the only guest. The staff took really good care. Cooking excellent food.
Danny, my guide, took me around the Amazonas by boot. My goal was to see a tarantula and pink dolphins. By even seeing hundreds of birds, iguanas, snakes and all kinds of other animals my expectations were exceeded. I even went to a local village up a little stream.
This great experience was supported by the good English language skills of my guide and his knowledge about the local habitat.
The only drawback was that I did not get to see any kaymans. But this was because of the heavy rains, which started in the late afternoon and continued through the night.
I ll always will remember the great sounds of the Amazonas and I hope to be back some day.
Thank you also to the helpful staff in Iquitos:Walter and Debbie.
See you soon next time,
Cheers from Germany, Michael
