I stayed on a 4 day package in December 2011. I specifically chose this lodge as it is a sustainable development project that involves and benefits the local community as well as being far enough into the amazon to experience it as the awesome place it truly is. the wildlife, nature viewing, the floating cabins, the food, the people...every single part was as imagined and truly a magical experience. the lodge is not a 'mainstream' lodge that is easily accessible, however if you choose to visit, you will not be disappointed. this place gave me access to the amazon i imagined.
