Napo was a great experience. The wildlife was excellent and the guides very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The rooms are apparently very luxurious for the amazon. You still get a lot of creepy crawlies inside the rooms though...........additionally the bed sheets are horrid and need replaced. The setting is beautiful by the lake. Be warned though.........there is no opportunity to enjoy this peace and tranquility. Mornings are 5.30am and there is no let up or choice. I opted out of one activity for some relaxation and was treated like a leper! There is also an extremely rude barman.........and the food is average.
