    Great experience apart from being asked for money at every turn. I was starting to wonder what was included in the price we had already payed if I'm honest. We weren't doing things by schedule and they skipped the maccaws visit because they said it was to far away so thet took us on another river cruise instead which was disappointing.

    The food was all delicious, always had to go back for seconds, especially the fresh pineapple o.0 Edwin, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly, he allowed us to be flexible with the activities and time we had available.

    Our guide Edwin was AMAZING! He made the trip for us. If you go, ask for him specifically. He knows everything about the wildlife and the cultures of the villages and tribes around the lodge you get to visit. He was absolutely exceptional. He runs a project out of his home village where he provides fish nets to local people so they don’t hunt the precious few remaining creatures of the jungle (monkeys, alligator, capybara, ect). The food was delicious, and was very authentic to the available resources of the jungle. The cook was so sweet, and let our guide in to her kitchen to cook us the piranha we caught! We’d love to come back!

    This trip was easily my best experience during our visit to the Peruvian Amazon. The location of the eco-lodges is absolutely stunning, being both completely surrounded by rainforest and waterways. There is even a small and isolated village nearby where you can acquaint yourself with some of the locals. If you decide to visit the village, I recommend you try some of the locally made liquors and that you stock up for the duration of your stay. Our guide, who went by Edwin, was a wonderful person to experience the trip with. He made sure that we were well taken care of and his knowledge of the jungle and its inhabitants was extensive, to put it lightly. The rest of the staff we got acquainted with were all super friendly and always made us feel welcome. Every excursion was a trip to remember. At no point were any of us bored with the itinerary we were provided with. I do however have to point out that the included activities are not for the faint of heart, as we were constantly exposed to dangerous flora and fauna. To us however, this was what made our trips into the jungle so authentic and profound. The eco-lodges are simple, but provide you with electricity, cold showers (which is all you'll want due to the extreme heat) and shelter from mosquitoes. There is a large main hall where people get their water from, as well as where large groups gather to eat, socialize and generally have a good time. However, there is no wifi anywhere. So if that matters to you, now you know. The food was delicious. They even provided my brother with vegetarian dishes to accommodate his diet. Also, if you go fishing for piranhas they'll cook one that you've caught for you to try. Summarized; For anyone looking to experience the Amazon Rainforest at its most authentic, this is the way to do it. Though you'll have to decide for yourself if you or anyone coming with you can cope with the dangers inherent to such an expedition.
