We did the 4 day, 3 night package here and I would thoroughly recommend it. The lodge is beautiful, the food was great, the staff friendly and the guides were incredible at spotting wildlife. The jungle and rivers are stunning, and we saw a huge amount of wildlife from our canoes, from the huge observation tower in the jungle, from the observation tower at the lodge and even just sitting on our balcony. The local guides have lived here all their lives and know the jungle and waterways so well that they can spot wildlife really well. We had great fun watching lots of different monkeys and the antics of the giant otters, plus spotting hundreds of birds. The fact that you mostly do the wildlife spotting from small kayaks (paddled for you) makes this a very peaceful experience, with the main noise being the sound of the water and the jungle. Perfect.
