We stayed at Posada Amazonas doing the 4d/3n soft adventure tour which incorporated climbing the canopy tower, canopy climbing via harness, hiking, and ethobotanical tour, boating on the lake and fishing for piranhas. My daughter also went kayaking one afternoon, I chose to relax. The activities are well handled and thought out and we had a lot of fun on them. Safety was always a priority. Our guide throughout our stay was a bit reserved but very sweet. Another one of our guides for the canopy climbing was fun. Our group consisted of 6 of us and I made a couple of very good friends out of it. :)
The food was decent, I'd only say the occasional dish was really good, but the setting also made for quite enjoyable meal times, set in a covered platform open to the elements and the sounds of the jungle, lit wonderfully in the evening. Meals were served in a buffet style.
Our room was wonderful and magical. There is no true door to the room, only a curtain, but there is a small safe to lock valuables up in. The rooms are made of bamboo, with wood platform floors, and only 3 walls. This left one wall totally open to the elements and the jungle which made for an amazing experience. Our room had 2 comfy beds with good mosquito netting and lots of awesome pillows, lots of shelf space for our luggage, a hammock and a private bathroom with shower. There is a clothes line in front of the open side of the room, however the humidity is soooo high, nothing ever dries.. for that matter, anything that once was dry is never dry again while you are there. There are no plugins in the room, nor is there any lighting outside of oil lamps that get lit at night, so having a flashlight or headlamp is an absolute must.
As for the rest of the resort, there are plenty of sitting areas to relax, including a spot with hammocks. There's a souvenir shop, the restaurant of course. At the main sitting area and the restaurant there is plugins to charge up your iphones, camera batteries, etc, however the times the power is on is VERY limited
The resort does supply rubber boots for everyone for use as it is often muddy, this is the jungle after all.
I can definitely recommend this place. :) .
