A perfect place for solo travelers like myself to visit! This is the newest lodge in the area so all of the buildings are super nice. The staff are all local people and know so much about the area. I learned so much about the jungle, animals and community there. The night spend at the lake during sunset was absolutely stunning. The food that they serve is delicious and they're super accommodating to veggies and vegans! This place is filled with great people and you'll definitely have a good time if you go! Highly recommend!

I highly recommend this place to everybody who wants to experience the Ecuadorian part of the Amazone. The people at the lodge are all local. The tour guides are so knowledgeable about the area. The staff at this lodge is very kind and they make you feel like home. You can feel that everything they do is coming from the heart. You get 3 meals a day, which are amazing and various. The bread is freshly baked everyday. They also have free coffee, tea and hot chocolate during the day. And don’t forget to ask about the salsa sauce. The activities are interesting and give you a real Amazon experience. Keep up the good work guys and may we’ll meet again!Jens

Everything was terrific! We were out there with one of the two local owners, Gilver, who shared a ton of interesting information, was extremely knowledgeable and had excellent English. I also briefly met Carlos, who was mentioned in other reviews and he seemed to know his stuff too but I ultimately can't speak to that. He is a local from the jungle though so I can't imagine him being ill informed about anything.I can only recommend them, beds, food, facilities, everything was comfortable and we felt extremely relaxed.

Perfect time in the jungle with local guides from the Amazonas region. We felt truly welcomed and had a lovely time, the perfect balance of action packed and relaxing. We saw loads of animals, walked through the jungle and swam in the river. 10/10 - would recommend this experience to anyone!!

Wanna go to the jungle but don’t know where to exactly? This is the place.We had an amazing and exciting time here.The food is GREAT (also the veggie options!), the staff is very friendly & welcoming and the guides know simply everything about jungle wildlife.You’ll be able to see a lot of different animals and plants while hiking or being in the canoe. You’ll be able to go for a swim in the lagoon while sunset. If you like, you can even sleep in the hammock in the jungle close to the Lodge. And you will learn SO MUCH about animals and life of the people in the jungle.We miss it already. Go for it and have a great time!
