“Best place in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Most definitely the best lodging option in Misahalli. Just a 5 min walk from the village center, Banana Lodge is a very nice, clean, comfortable, and just plain beautiful place, right on the Misahualli river with easy water access and really cool views of the jungle.

Ana and Eduardo are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and eager to help. Ana speaks English and Russian, and Eduardo is a great tour guide. They have excellent contacts and can arrange any kind of activity: multiple-day jungle treks and river rafting, site tours,community volunteering, shamanic ceremonies... you name it.

They also have great wi-fi, a kitchen where you can cook your own meals if you want to, and a nice area for relaxing and listening to jungle noises with hammocks and a fire pit.

Room Tip: You can stay in a room with full amenities, or in a more basic cheaper room with a hammock and a bat...
