What a beautiful place stay! The rooms are modern but simple and comfortable and very, very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You can go for a swim in the river to escape the Amazons heat and humidity. It's close to town and is the perfect place to stay to disover the Amazon!

Highly recommended! A clean and charming lodge right on the river. The friendly owners offer tours down the river and chocolate demonstrations. You can hope into the river right out back for a swim, or walk five minutes into town and hang out with the monkeys at the beach. 25-30 minutes to Tena by bus, so not hard to find....
