“Jungle sunrise can't be beat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

My family spent 4 days and 3 nights here. The food and service was great and the location not too demanding to get to. We especially loved our guide, Fino. He shared his great knowledge and love for the animals and birds of the jungle. His tours were wonderful and he was generous with his patience and his time. We especially liked the sunrise visit to the tower listening to the howler monkeys, the night walk, huge kapok tree and just watching my kids fall love with the jungle.

Room Tip: Ask for Fino for a guide if you love birding.

My stay at Posada Amazonas far exceeded my expectations!!

2 of us stayed at Posada Amazonas fo the 4day/3night trip. And I am certainly glad we got 2 full days in the jungle.

Everything about the trip was superb, from the pick-up at the airport, to the transfer to the lodge, and then the transfer back to the airport (with them printing out our boarding passes)

The lodge is very enjoyable...the rooms where wonderful. Being open to the jungle was certainly a great experience (even if it meant I had trouble sleeping one night thinking about the things just a few feet away - it really added to the experience).

The food at the lodge was great, and having a bar there meant that other people at the lodge congregated at certain times, and we where able to share stories.

To top it all off, we had the best guide. Aldo!!! Aldo rocks. He definitely made the trip. He was able to spot and point out many things in the forest that would easily be missed. His knowledge and passion for the forest was certainly appreciated.

I really can't speak highly enough of the experience. if you are looking for a good experience with some level of comfort while in the jungle...this place is for you...it was for me!!!

Room Tip: As of May 2011, some rooms had hot showers

We stayed at this eco lodge with about 25 college age people for 3 nights. It was jam packed with adventure, and although we are much older than they were, we enjoyed every minute. Our normal trips tend to be in 5 star hotels, but this was so different that we thought we'd give it a try and we weren't disappointed. There was a lot of hiking- both in daylight and during the night with flashlights, although nothing too strenuous. They provided rubber boots due to the mud everywhere, but we still could wear flip flops/sandals inside the lodge. We took a trip to see parrots at the salt lick, tried piranha fishing, met a medicine man, and saw lots of animals/birds/bugs in the jungle in spite of the daily rain.

The food was good, and if you have diet restrictions like we did (no pork), they were happy to prepare something else.

There is a donation box for used clothing in the lodge. If there's anything you want to bring to donate, keep this in mind. They can use all types of warm weather clothing (kids-adults). Remember that most of them are shorter height. You should also bring cash for a tip at the end to show your satisfaction.

There is a small store where you can buy bug spray and flashlights (a must!).

Food was good and plentiful. Be prepared for heat/humidity as the sleep environment. You ought to be if you expect to "sample" the jungle, don't you think?

A beautiful Eco lodge in the middle of the amazon. The architecture is amazing, with all rooms being open to the jungle on one side. Lots of nature and animals to see with the help of expert guides from the area! And great food!

A lovely location on one of the Amazon tributaries. The lack of electricity in the guest rooms made for a more natural experience especially with the mosquito netting and and one wall open to the jungle for a nightly sound show. Reading by candlelight before drifting off to sleep was really cool.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Among my favorite experiences were kayaking down the river and the night hike - fantastic photo ops of many, many nocturnal insects and creatures. Loved it!

It was the perfect combination of immersion in the rain forest environment, but also a comfortable place to stay. Gorgeous wooden raised walkways connect private bungalows with the communal dining and recreation areas. The guest rooms each had only 3 walls, leaving one wall entirely open to observe and listen to the rain forest, including a great view from the shower (with no fear of gawkers.) A very natural environment, with a mix of function and beauty, that made every moment memorable. Beds draped in mosquito nets. Eco-conscious shower products. Limited use of electricity including torches along the walkway that were lit each night and lanterns for the rooms. Hammocks hung from the common lodge spaces, allowing great places to rest and watch the birds and monkeys gliding between the trees.

The staff and the hospitality were incredible. We were greeted at the airport and transported by bus and boat to reach the lodge. Along the way we were given a taste of local fruits and a delicious rice dish wrapped in banana leaves (and thus easily disposable in the river.) Each subsequent meal was equally as nourishing and enjoyable, and very local-exotic. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and gracious - taking us on forest walks for parrot watching, piranha fishing, tower climbing (for a breathtaking view above the tree canopy) and a trip to visit the shaman at a medicinal garden. It was the full rain forest experience I was looking for. Whenever guides saw an interesting animal, plant or insect, they were certain to point it out and provide some background. One night even the guides were excited over a sloth sighting right near the lodge! In addition, one of the guides even gave us a special night-tour on request, taking us back to the tower to gaze at the stars and soak in the sounds of the rain forest.

It was a truly beautiful, one of a kind experience.
