Recently married, we chose this lodge for us to get away and experience the Amazon Rainforest. It is located near the town of Cotundo, but is deep enough into the jungle to get away. We did the adventure package and got to go on treks deep into virgin forests, swim in waterfalls, and see a variety of insects and nature. The staff is run by the local community, so we knew that during our stay we were contributing to the developing the area. The community also shared with us their history and cultural practices. The overall highlight of our trip was seeing mushrooms that glow in the dark. It was like the movie Avatar. We reccomend those staying to try the local Guayusa tea, which has more of a caffeine kick than coffee.
