We have been travelling to the Amazon with 3 families and stayed for 3 nights in the Tariri Logde. It was an amazing experience, staying there. Germano and Fabiola are wonderful hosts, you soon get friends with them and all the rest of the brazilian-peruan family. The food of Fabiola was the best we had in our whole journey through Brazil, and the excursions with Germano were very interesting and always with a little touch of adventure. There has been written so much over this lodge, and it's all true. It's an absolutly perfect choice, if you want to visit the Amazon. The only bad thing of our stay was, that we only stayed for 3 nights.

If you want the real Amazon experience, stay at this lodge. A wonderful place. The lodge arranged a two hour car ride then an hour and a half canoe trip from Manaus, deep into the Amazon. My hut was roomy and the bed comfortable, plus I relaxed in the hammock on the porch. Germano, the owner and host, who is of the indigenous people, was super friendly and great at taking the guests for trips of interest around the area. His English was good. Among the canoe excursions I went on were night crocodile (caimon) viewing when Germano's brother jumped into the water and captured a young male for us to hold, and piranha fishing in the dark swamp. There also were pink and gray dolphins, though I decided not to take that trip, and a vast variety of birds like green parrots and kingfishers. The most incredible butterflies, such as huge ones with blue opalescent wings, suddenly flew in front of the canoe. Germano showed us how manioc and tapioca are traditionally made. Back at the camp, Germano's wife Fabiola, also with good English, was also super friendly and a wonderful cook. The meals were delicious. I especially enjoyed coming back from crocodile viewing and finding a platter of bread shaped liked a crocodile. Lala the blue parrot (I think) is there for you to feed fruit slices. No electricty except a few hours a day from a generator, and as a result cold showers, but that was part of the deep Amazon experience. I would recommend a stay at Tariri (means 'family' in Germano's native language--his father and brother work there also) Amazon Lodge at any time.

We had read the reviews like everyone else and we (us and 2 young children) could just anticipate that it would be a pleasant stay in the Amazonas but when we arrived we knew straight away that it was a very special place indeed!!! We have traveled the world and met and saw all kind of places and accommodations and people but this one has to be one of the truly best! The kindness of the owners and the rest of the family and members of staff, the attention to your needs that they provide, the quality of the accomodation and cooking that they offer everyday in the middle of nowhere shows how dedicated they are. It also shows that they want to bring you the best that they can do and on that sense we felt privileged to be with them and share a bit of the journey of life together. The excursions were very enchanting and delivered the magic of the Amazonas with the flooded forest, the canoe drives to the villages, the swim with the pink dolphins and the night canoe safari to find alligators. On the last day of our trip we had organised to see the meeting of the waters and it was also a very interesting and fascinating experience.
The bungalows were perfect, well equipped, clean, they have nets around the windows but in any case they have no mosquitoes in that part of the Amazonas and it was very pleasant.
The kindness and the professionalism of Germano and his wife Fabiola were very touching and Yes it was a unique and unforgettable experience that we highly recommend!

A friend of mine told me that I would get bored quickly staying at any lodge in the Amazon, so I booked a stay of four nights, five days at Tariri. Well? I loved it so much that I decided to stay an extra night. It was an oasis of calm in the middle of a chaotic, submerged forest. The stay at Tariri was the perfect blend of eco-education, adventure, relaxation in a hammock, culture, and culinary delight! Finally, with only ten cabins, Tariri offers a unique, family-run atmosphere that is immediately inviting and that makes you sad to leave. Go! Don't think about it! Just go :)

The lodge itself is basic, but nice. The owners are friendly, and the food is very tasty and local. Best experience in the Amazon itself was the flooded forest at the very start of the dry season. It was truly amazing, but it also meant that you are more or less limited to your lodge's grounds. Do keep in mind that when the forests are flooded, you are limited to your lodge's grounds. If those are small, than you don't have much to do except sit around.

The choice of this lodge should depend on the kind of person you are. If you have kids or older people in your group, Ariri would be pretty great. If you are after more adventure, I would recommend somewhere else, and arranging everything in greater detail than we did. Additionally, if you would like to see anything like the Meeting of the Waters of the Amazon and Rio Negro, you are in the wrong spot.

The main issue we had, aside from having to spend much of the day reading and sleeping in the very comfy hammocks (which we, in honesty, can do at home) was that we had to redo some of their offered activities, as we arrived from Manaus a day earlier than a few other people who joined what became our group. This is quite unacceptable, and the lodge should be able to deal with people who arrive at different times in a more satisfactory manner.
