What a wonderful place to spend 3D/2N! It was far too short - in retrospect I would have booked 5D (4 days for touring and 1 day to just relax by the pool and take in the sounds of the jungle).
From our arrival at Pto Moldonado to our departure we were very well taken care of by congenial hosts (not hovering babysitters). We found Raul at the airport quickly and easily. He made our transfer to the boat (via the office and a few quick errands) easy and seamless. Just as he did our departure. Raul is very pleasant and eager to show us his town. (he'll make a great guide when the time comes!)
Our boat ride was a quick 25 minutes. Once there we had some time to relax and chill with the local macaws, toucan and parrots. They are quite a cast of characters!!
We met Manuel for our botanical walk in the adjoining jungle. His knowledge and enthusiasm is key ingredient to his success as a guide. Manuel was our guide for the duration of our time at Corto Maltes.
Our bungalow was kept clean and we did have warm water. The electricity is on a schedule, but it didn't interfere with our enjoyment. My only criticism would be the seating arrangements at meal time. I do wish it was open seating so that we could meet other travellers. We were fortunate that the other traveller in our 'group' was great and we did enjoy her company.
I will add... we did find a big coach roach in our bungalow. I suspect he came up through the drain. We shoo-ed him out and was never seen again. We also had a little frog hiding in the corner of the wall. Again, we let him be and he left while we were off to breakfast. Moral of the story: Keep your bags zipped up and your snacks locked up! The critters are part of the landscape.
We really enjoyed our stay!!!
