    Die verschiedenen Tiere und Pflanzen. Leider hat die JAMU LODGE kein W-LAN (Wi FI). Die Guide Veronica war kompetent und versiert

    I went on a 4 day trip to Amazon with this agency and couldn't be happier with the service provided. All 4 days were full of activities. The lodge we stayed at was great and the food there was amazing! I highly recommend this agency and its Amazon tours!

    Beautiful environment, luxurious lodge (with surprisingly good food) and excellent guides + excursions. This jungle trip was the absolute height of our vacation and everything was organized perfectly.

    For 4 days we were dropped in the jungle by Rebecca. And the greatest experience ever! When they say dropped it is true, in the Amazone you are in the middle of nowhere. We saw so many different types of wildlife, with my personal favorite a sloth:) The guides, chefs and transportation were really professional and nice. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone in the future!

    Nuevamente fui a Cuyabeno del 30 de Abril al 3 de Mayo, mi estadía fue en Samona en la nueva torre, mi habitación fue en el cuarto piso, con los grandes ventanales que tiene cada habitación, tienes cuadros vivientes de la jungla, la vista desde la habitación y recostado en tu cama son de película, las habitaciones grandes y el baño con toda comodidad la pase de lujo se los recomiendo 10/10

    We booked two tours with Rebecca Adventure Travel and it was very good organized. We had a very good cruise arranged by them, it was well organized and especially the boat we had, a catamaran, was really cool! Good food and nice crew, really worth the money. All the information we received that well on time to prepare us for the cruise. Also our trip to Cuyabeno Jungle was perfect. Transportation, information and lodge, everything went pretty well! Also for this accounts that you get what you pay for. One tip, if you go on a cruise make sure where you want to get picked up because not all people get picked up at the same spot.

    We went for a 4daytour in the jungle and we loved it a lot. We stayed in a nice and clean lodge and our tourguide took good care of us. As he s a native from on of the tribes there he could spy every animal and he told us a lot of useful information. The food was good too, everyday there was something difference and the stuff prepared different meals for vegans, ppls with allergies etc. It was a great stay and we felt very welcome there.
