We absolutely LOVED our stay at Reserva Amazonica. I am sure I had high expectations after reading all of the wonderful reviews from tripadvisor and they met or exceeded all of them! We arrived at the airport and were taken to the Butterfly farm for checkin then to the canoe for our trip to the reserve. Everyone was so friendly, positive and helpful. Upon arrival, I was a little disappointed that the cabanas were so close together, but I am sure that is partly because of rainforest conservation so I can't fault them for that. The cabanas were beautiful. Ours had two chairs, two hammocks, two twin beds and of course a bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there is both hot and cold water. The shower at was the best that we experienced in all of our travels in Peru!
Each morning we were awakened by all of the different birds around the cabanas. On really early morning outings there was a gentleman that would lightly knock on the side of your cabana until you responded. That kind of wake up call is so much more pleasant that a telephone ringing!
Our guide was absolutely wonderful. His name was Victor and I wouldn't be surprised if he was the best guide there. He was very knowledgable, positive and truly passionate about his job. You should definitely request him on your trip. Our favorite adventure was to Sandoval Lake. We found that you really should get up early each day to maximize the number of critters you will see. Also, it gets too hot in the afternoon, it's nice to be able to nap on a hammock instead of walking through the jungle in the heat of the day.
The food was wonderful! Each meal was served buffet style. No under heat lamps style buffet, but fresh and a constantly being replinished type buffet. At breakfast, they are happy to fry or scramble and egg for you.
I was very impressed with their efficently and organization of Reserva Amazonica. Be sure to pack the coolest clothes that you own that provide the most coverage from mosquitos. We didn't have much of a problem with mosquitos, but it is always a good idea to wear long pants in the woods. Also, be sure to bring a good book or two. If you are not with your guide in the jungle, there is not much to entertain you at the reserve unless a macaw has landed on a branch close by!
