The Heath River lodge is the furthest lodge along the bank of the river, so it does take a while to get to it by boat - 5.5 hours in our case, but so much wildlife to be seen on the way. We did not have a clue what we were getting ourselves into, and so much the better for it! I was eaten alive by mosquitos, but hey, we were in the rainforest! The accommodation was very bare, but made the whole jungle experience all the more rich, especially falling asleep and waking up to the most magnificent sounds imaginable - never heard so many cicadas at the same time! All involved - Jhon our guide, Jack his helper, Ernesto our boat captain and Marco Antonio the house keeper, were all knowledgable and very lovely people and contributed so much to our experience!
