We had a 3 day Amazon tour with G Adventures after 4 day Inca Trail trekking. Amazon may give us an impression of survival tour and dangerous encounter to predators and I was fully prepared with malaria medication, Deet, cholera vaccine, etc... and it was definitely good for peace of mind. We saw tarantulas in their nest during night rainforest walk and a jaguar and Caymans from boat tour. Our guide Elvis appeared to be quiet, but he was a real jungle boy, spotting rare creatures and animals instead of just talking about them!
The lodges had no ceiling under the roof and we felt indescribable freedom in nature! We had an afternoon nap, listening to birds, insects and some monkeys, which was really comfortable and relaxing. As my friends and I are from Queensland, Australia, many trees and plants in rainforest are not that special, but there are a few interesting plants like the one you get bright purple colour dye from just a squeeze of a few green leaves. I was personally relieved because the tour was physically not too hard on us and it was rather relaxing instead.

We had a blast in the rainforest, spending a couple of nights at Treehouse Lodge, followed by a cruise on the Cattleya with several excursions into the jungle. The variety of plants and wildlife is amazing. A beautiful and wonderful place.

The lodge was nice, although rustic. We were met at the airport and all our travels needs were taken care of, including the trip back to the airport. The staff provided for all our needs, in fact, anticipated our needs. They were attentive to our safety. The room was spacious. There was plenty of food. The tour was amazing. We saw dolphins, cayman, monkeys, various snakes, frogs, insects and spiders. Our guide, Kid, had good English speaking skills. He arranged our tour around what we wanted to see. The location of the lodge was very pretty, quiet and peaceful for the most part. The only thing that was disruptive was the loud music into the early morning from the village next door.

It was so sweaty hot but lovely,,,so much decay but at the same time a real buzz when you think about where you are huge tip is dont skimp on the mosquito lotion,, buy a really good one plus buy zip off trousers, , so you can convert them into shorts when you are inside your accommodation, , dont dress to impress there just make sure you have your legs and arms covered and wear hats outside and a good sun tan lotion
