Let's get the negatives out of the way first. The cost of the rooms and experiences were $600 U.S a night I must admit I expected the accommodation to be better and the beer and wine to be cold. The accommodation was basic camp accommodation with fraying sheets and pillow cases. We had a wonderful time out on the river... More

I was disappointed to find that there is no research center at yarapa - I felt a bit misled by their website. Cornell brings their students their for a week a year, and maybe they do research there, but it is not actually a research center, just a lodge. Also I was the only guest there. So it was just...

Traveling this time with my family including grandchildren, this was my second trip to the Amazon. I particularly enjoyed being in the midst of the jungle surrounded by the day and night sounds that I missed on the trip I took on a boat. The accommodations are rustic, but perfect.

Highly recommend this beautiful, authentic lodge. Highlights include: attentive, kind, and extremely personable staff. Ability to tailor the itinerary to special interests (our guide, Ericson was passionate about helping us find all the birds and other wildlife on our list!). Delicious food, including local dishes (cerviche, fish soup) by request. We have already begun to recommend this lodge to friends... More
