Great place. The manager, Mr Gamez made my stay in the Amazon a wonderful experience. I cannot say enough positive things about Mr Gamez and his associate, Luis, as well as the ladies who run the kitchen and desk. I traveled solo and had specific places/things I wanted to see. Mr Gamez offers ALL the common tours in Leticia in...

We stayed two nights in Hotel Pirarucu in October 2015, during our trip through the Amazon. For us, it wasn't the hotel itself that stood out but the EXCEPTIONAL service from the Hotel Owner, Medardo. The hotel was very clean, the rooms spacious and the air conditioning excellent, especially considering not many places in Leticia have it. The location was...

I have just returned from a four night stay at hotel pirarucu Medardo Gomez is the hotel owner. Medardo welcomed me with such warmth and gusto it was wonderful.

You will feel very welcome. This place feels more like a family hotel. The staff is very friendly, they take care of what ever you need. A funny moment here: The night I got there, while I was in the lobby one of the guys passed by me with a giant bag full fish, raised the bag to show me...

For $80us/night I expected more than a very shabby stuffy room in a poorly ventilated somewhat shabby hotel. Inaccessible garden is an unkept shambles (seen through un openable window). Breakfast was very uninspiring. Only saving grace is people running it are quite nice. Had to give it 3 points after the receptionist managed to produce our boarding passes the evening...

After a week upriver, this hotel was a nice luxury. Decent price for the area, a bit pricey for everywhere else. Air conditioning, cold showers, nice pool. Decent service, clean and quiet (except the suite by the street which has a balcony where people socialize. One big downside - I was trying to leave at 4:30 am for a tour...

My flight arrived to Leticia from Bogota with no problem and I took a short taxi ride to the hotel for 7000. You can also arrange for the hotel to pick you up. I was most impressed by the friendly manner of the staff. I cannot speak Spanish, but found it easy to communicate my needs. The manager, Medardo, was...

The sign says "your home in the amazons" and from my experience, it truly was. I did not know what to expect when heading to Leticia but my family at the Pirarucu hotel made it a great trip. Medardo (whom I now refer to as Tio Medardo), the hotel manager really made every day the best trip ever. We stayed...
