The thing that I remember most about this was the horrendous walk in and out. It had rained and indeed rained during our walk and the very poorly maintained path was 3 k of mud. (The path is not the responsibility of the Lodge.) My wet weather gear was in the bag with the porter who was quite a distance ahead of us so I also got soaked. I had the feeling that the lodge was on its last legs - there was no feeling of vitality about the place. The quality of the food was very patchy and 2 of our party got sick. The rooms were adequate. Given the situation I did not expect luxurious surroundings or every comfort but I did expect the basic requirements advertised to be provided. This did not always occur. However the river otters were magnificent and our guide, Javier, was one of the best.
