Antonio is very efficient at running this lodge. We arranged for our 4 day, 3 night trip by email and paid for it once we got to Manaus. We arrived by boat from Tefe and were met by Wesley who took us to a cash machine and then to our hotel. A taxi picked us up the next morning promptly at 7:20 and took us to the hostel where we were joined by three other couples. We were then loaded into a van and driven about 2 hours to the Urubu River and transported to the lodge. The cabins are very nice with window screens and private bathrooms with cold water showers. The outings were enjoyable and informative. The guides were friendly (some more than others) if not occasionally a bit sarcastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We opted out of the over night jungle stay. This was no problem for the staff and we had a relaxing time paddling around in the canoe on our own and watching the sunset from the tower. The food selection didn't vary from day to day but was good and there was an endless supply of drinking water provided. Although there aren't many mosquitoes, there are however many other bugs that bite. So definitely bring bug spray if you are sensitive to bug bites. It's not a zoo, so you may or may not see many animals. After our stay, a boat picked us up and the driver took us to a bus stop and made sure we got on the bus and even told the bus driver which stop we need to get out. There we were greeted by a taxi and taken back to our hotel. This process was run like a well oiled machine. Great job Antonio.
