I had a great time at the Hakuna Matata Lodge! The Lodge under german management is not very far from Archidona (close to the city of Tena). To get there you have to cross a suspension bridge over a river, passing a small indigenous village and continue a bit more into the jungle, all accessible by car. I stayed there for 3 nights. My room was very spacious and clean, as well as the bathroom, where I enjoyed a great warm shower. The staff created a nice family atmosphere where everyone was very helpful and attentive, and the served food was absolutely fantastic. I took part in a guided jungle walk as well as in a chocolate making workshop, which were both really funny and enriching experiences. I also went on the easy to find trails to explore the jungle by myself. Therefore, I think this is a great place to experience the jungle with the additional opportunities of making tours (in or around the lodge – even rafting is possible), horse rides or to enjoy the wonderful pool and the surroundings of the lodge.
So I can really recommend a stay in the Hakuna Matata Lodge.More
