Explore the Amazon with the maximum comfort staying in a Premium Lodge with swimming pool on the banks of the river
The Iquitos Jungle Trip Premium Lodge is the best option for travelers who want to go deep into the Amazon jungle without giving up comfort.
You will stay in an eco lodge located in the Yanamono Communal Reserve, 80 km (50 miles) from the city of Iquitos. A paradisiacal place to rest in total harmony with nature. The rooms are built in a rustic style, with high ceilings, panoramic windows, private bathroom, terrace with hammock and rocking chairs. They also have ceiling fans and mosquito nets.
The activities included in the tour are done in a small group (10 travelers) with a professional guide, perfect to meet other travelers but without altering the environment. But also if you want to do it privately, with a guide only for your group, you only have to include this extra when booking.
