Believe it or not, lodges in the Amazon can provide some of the highest quality stays among South American accommodations. And no, great service and amenities does not necessarily reduce authentic experience. Simply, you won’t sacrifice any of the usual comforts found in the city. In fact, you will find many of those features interestingly adapted. Take for instance soothing hot showers collected from rain water and heated by the sun. We also have eco-friendly terracotta exfoliates, biodegradable products (many of them made from locals), meals prepared with local and sustainable farming, furniture made entirely from recycled materials, building complex built on grey areas (basically recycling terrains), and so on.
Moreover, usually the best lodges have a better chance of having better and more sustainable programs, guides, safer excursions, and performance. Here, the context of “sustainable” is more than a mere certification alone of being labeled as an eco-lodge. It involves research, active programs with real results, and an increasing awareness. As a result, all these make possible, not only an in-depth exploration of the rainforest, but an appreciation that will most probably impact you and last throughout your lifetime. Of course, if you prefer a more “rustic” accommodation, we can arrange that for you too; it is after all a matter of preference. We do emphasize, however, the importance on the difference between a composition of wooden materials stacked-up together to form a box, and a harmoniously integrated cabin integrated with the surrounding nature designed to have specific functions. For these, say, luxury lodges, This also reflects on the service and programs; even down to the little things such as the speed of the canoe to the sustainability of the coffee being consumed. Instead of merely staying among jungle trees, one rather live and sense the Amazon.
In addition, we tailor field excursions for avid birders, adventure seekers and wildlife watchers. The Amazon is not limited to these types of activities though. You can focus it as a family trip, an adventurous honeymoon or a luxury safari to the Amazon. Your child will be amazed of how the cycle of life can be so evident in a small portion of the jungle. Learn how to make soothing oil extracts with your significant one – which its main ingredient has a romantic story behind. Wake up before dawn and go onto a deep expedition in search of a specific bird. Have a rainforest-style picnic next to the calm river shores of one of the longest river on earth. Although, that calmness may be interrupted with a sudden and thrilling moment of a crocodile fighting an anaconda. It is not even an up-close encounter with wildlife; it is an immersion, and this applies even on events that may not seem relevant with a jungle experience. Imagine waking up to exotic wildlife all around before even getting out of bed. Picture yourself sitting out in the evening … as the sun goes down over the forest canopy … while sipping a glass of Malbec in the open air as the creatures of the forest begin their nightly serenade to the beat of a tropical shower. In the rainforest, you will somehow get to understand, what being back in synchrony with nature feels like.
