A few words about Otogongo Lodge 100 km from Iquitos Once in this magical place, I immediately feel part of pristine nature surrounding me sounds created a vibrant atmosphere of unity! And it was still only the first day, after which I went with guides for a few days to live directly in the Amazon Rain Forest! Sensations acquired in...

Where people breath water (the humidity is almost 100%) ... There, deep in the Amazone, close to Oran village (do visit Oran!!) you find Otorongo Lodge. A friendly owner (Anthony), a fantastic guide (Walter) and a wonderful staff. If you like swimming pools, internet, wi-fi, shopping malls: don't come here!! But if you want to learn about nature, searching for...

Good food, relaxing surroundings in the jungle and an amazing guide (Luis). Spent three days there with fishing, trekking and the jungle, watching dolphins and visited the local village. Rich bird life in the area. I can highly recommend this lodge. But expect the primitive and relaxed life in the jungle. No wifi and telephone signal, so a perfect place...

I have not visited their lodge, but am very familiar with the owners. These are two of the dearest, sincere, truly ecologically concerned individuals you will meet. Their sincerity is only matched by their experience and knowledge of the ecology, and what they promote. If you are looking for a truly appreciative experience, on a jungle adventure, than this would...

Stayed for 5 nights here, The accommodation was quite comfortable and the staff friendly. Our guide Edison was fantastic and we made good friends with him. The food was pretty good, plenty of it, we just wish there was some more fresh local fruit to try besides bananas. We saw plenty of animals and were glad to stay the 5...

We were very disappointed with this lodge and the guide who was assigned to us. We expected it to be hot and humid, but this lodge was too rustic for the price. Sincé staying there, I´ve been told of several other facilities that cost less and offer more. The best thing about our stay was the food as the dinners...

Thank you for your opinion. The guide who was with you has been relieved of his duty with us. He had proven to be a very negative person that would do the minimum to get by. Yes there are cheaper lodges and maybe slightly nicer but you would sacrifice plenty of wildlife observation opportunities and a real experience. the lodges...

Had a great time staying four days in April. The lodge picked me up from the airport and took me to Iquitos where I met my guide and he took me around to some cafes and sights downtown. Next we got on an boat and took a ride for about an hour and stopped at a local rum distillery. It...

I believe all creatures naturally have a sense of nature but human beings are too much distracted and have gradually lost touch with the nature. Staying at Otorongo draws me closer the nature again. Even the tropical rains sounded like symphony. The log house contains guest rooms and a common area where fellow travellors can enjoy meals and socialize. The...

Otorongo may be known for its lodge experience, but if you are the adventurous type looking for a rewarding challenge, I would recommend one of their long hikes through the jungle. On their website, Otorongo lists some of the hike options. I did the Oran-Piedrot-Oran hike for 5 days/4 nights. There wasn't any backtracking - the hike went due north...

Being met in Inquitos, with transportation to Otorongo by fast or slow boat was a wonderful experience. I chose the slow boat of 5+ hours to enjoy the experience. With one stop where I noticed the Amazonia Victoria lilies, I had an advance opportunity to see these amazing plants, And sample alittle jungle alcohol. The hammock in the boat allowed...
