The lodge is very luxurious and comfortable, while still rustic and blending into the surrounding jungle. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms clean, albeit that one wall is open to the jungle. I recommend that you bring a small battery powered lamp for use in the room at night, as the lanterns and candles provided don’t give much light.
Our guide, Joni was excellent and had a vast knowledge of the local flora and fauna. He was also a great host and fun to be with. The meals were basic but really tasty and adequate.
The lodge has a lovely atmosphere in the evening where one can have a drink at the bar with new made friends. Definitely recommended for nature lovers and those who enjoy a little adventure.
