We stayed a week at this wonderful lodge. The individual floating cabins are very spacious, bright and comfortable. The food is incredible and varied- very impressive considering the remote location. The experience was great from the start to finish. Our guide made every attempt to make sure that our outings were special. We saw a lot of wildlife during our stay including the Uakari monkey on our fifth day. We thought we were extremely lucky to see a whole troupe at a relatively good distance. During our stay we also briefly spotted a harpy eagle- very rare. This lodge gives you the opportunity to really commune with nature unlike other lodges located too closely to Manaus. The outings were very informative and educational. We spotted pink and grey dolphins, various types of monkeys, heard the pirarucu under our cabin, observed the caiman near the property and enjoyed the sight of numerous species of birds. The visits to local communities were also very worthwhile. Overall,
this lodge represents great value for money for those who want to really experience the Amazon. We'd love to return.
