Amazon Lodge Help!!!

Hi,

Looking for an Amazon lodge around Iquitos & hoping you can help with some suggestions. So far I'm considering the below as I do really want to see the river dolphins.

Treehouse Lodge

Amazonia Expeditions' Tahuayo Lodge

Thanks in advance for the feedback!

I would visit Tahuayo before Treehouse. AyE tours or Tahuayo lodge is a dedicated conservationist organization. Treehouse is a gimmick.

I would Avoid the company mentioned by Rick, they have very little consideration of the Amazon River, Rainforest and its people. The proof is in its publicity and marketing pictures of cheap sloth and monkey selfies (which are harming the wild populations.)

Avoid agencies that promote visiting monkey islands and"Native" Tribes, they exploit animal, locals and tourists. They are not legit.

The images of people standing with natives in headdresses are re-enactments that exploit tourists and locals alike, it would be cool if it were labeled as a reenactment but people leave genuinely thinking the person live the way they do.

Choose a company that does not support handicrafts made of animal parts .

Dear Rick, please visit another company so you may formulate a un bias opinion of travel companies in the area. You are really missing out if you only travel with one company

My wife and I had been to Iquitos once and stayed at Muyuna Lodge. One of the reasons why we chose the lodge is because it supports the local village and environmental friendly. Most of the staff live in the adjacent village and all trash were transported back to the city for proper disposal.

We stayed there for 4D3N and saw plenty of wildlife.

Last September our tour group of 14 spent 3 nights at the Muyuna Lodge. We all really liked it. I was worried that with only solar power and no fans or air-conditioning the heat would be unbearable, but their screened cabins on an elevated walkway system provided sufficient airflow so that we were never that hot. Also the food, served buffet style, at the main lodge is great! We saw lots of wildlife on the lodge excursions: sloths, monkeys, caiman, pink dolphins and of course tons of birds. Oh yes, be sure the guides take you to see the giant water-lillies...that experience was one of my favorites.
