Amazon Rainforest Lodge

Amazon Rainforest Lodge is located in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, on the right bank of the Momon River, a 45 minute boat ride from the Nanay port of the city of Iquitos.

Come and enjoy an unforgettable voyage to the enchanted Peruvian Amazon. Your own private guide will accompany you during your stay.

The Amazon Rainforest Lodge is located on the slow moving Momon river, which is a tributary of the Nanay river which leads into the mighty Amazon. The journey from the port of the city of Iquitos to the lodge is just 45 minutes by boat.

Come and join us for an unforgettable trip into the Amazon rainforest. Stay for a few days and nights and enjoy the feeling of being at one with nature with all the creature comforts. Our private English speaking guide accompanies each group. We visit three indigenous tribes in the area (Yaguas, Jibaros, Boras) and trek through the rainforest to observe the fauna and flora (please see our detailed list for all the activities).

The lodge

The Amazon Rainforest Lodge has 22 large bungalows with private bathrooms; all bungalows are interconnected by wooden covered walkways. We have our own kitchen, restaurant, bar, we have two swimming pools, a large one for adults and a small one for small children, monkeys, parrots, macaws and other animals and two lookout towers with a wonderful view. Our skilled chef prepares delicious local specialties from food grown in the area.

We have our own speedboats and several canoes, and we also use Pamacari style wooden boats for larger groups. For transport inside the city of Iquitos we have our own bus and 4 x 4 Nissan vehicle.
