The staff was very welcoming and did everything to make our stay a good experience. Mud boots were provided for our rainforest hike, so we wouldn't have needed to pack our hiking boots. The meals served in the dining area were top notch, with much appreciated attention to our gluten free diet. Accommodations were clean and pleasant.

The entire staff was extremely accommodating. Our group was met by Felipe, who served us fruit drinks, then showed us to our rooms. Special kudos to Miguel, who was everywhere - serving meals, demonstrating chocolate making, leading hikes into the rainforest and serving as a guide to local villages.

Fantastic 3 night stay at the Hakuna Matata Lodge. Staff were really hospitable from the outset and our lodge room was super comfortable and spotlessly clean and all our meals were healthy and tasty. We especially loved the chocolate making workshop on Day 1 and the Amazon Community visit on Day 2 with Octavio who was really sincere, professional, and engaging as well as an expert on flora, fauna and birds. We finished our stay on a high after a full day’s exhilarating whitewater rafting on the Rio Jatunyacu with our 2 rafting guides Leandro and Rony.

We decided to stay at this location based on a recommendation from a dear friend and he hit it on the spot. We were warmly greeted by Octavio and Cosme and they showed us to our beautiful rooms. The rooms were clean spacious and very welcoming. The food was delicious our kids were not big adventure eaters ate almost everything which we loved. Great conversations very quiet and intimate property I highly recommended we wish we could be back sooner rather than later. Thanks Carmen and Diana. We loved how incredible and quick our communication to real people was before during and after the trip. They responded so quickly. We don’t want to leave.

Hakuna is a magical place, the whole staff is really kind and it is the perfect place to just relax and explore the beautiful nature! You can learn a lot about the local culture on the day trips and enjoy wonderful food in the restaurant. At night the noises of the jungle will put you to sleep and in the morning you can enjoy a quick swim in the huge pool. Thank you to the whole team for making this such a great place.
