The Tahuayo Lodge (and research center) is like no other place we have ever been before. Sitting on stilts on the Tahuayo Tributary of the Amazon River, the lodge offers guests wonderful daily and nightly, adventures into the jungle with fabulous guides who can spot monkeys, exotic birds, spectacular insects, and fish while they (the guides) paddle you through the jungle in wooden canoes. It truly is (at least) a once in a lifetime experience that includes a zip line trip in the tree canopy,100 feet above the jungle floor. Given that the lodge is four hours from modern conveniences, guests should be impressed that accommodations are so comfortable with tented beds and simple but delicious meals served in the dining hall. The owners work hard to respect the indigenous people and protect the jungle environment. The lodge uses solar energy which, for example, reduces the level of artificial light at night. But this is part of the experience. We would recommend this lodge to anyone who wants to have a true Amazon experience. If you go, be sure to take a head lamp, binoculars, a good (zoom lens ) camera, and mosquito repellent.
