Bucket To Do List
We experienced a very unspoiled environment while visiting the Amazon basin at Jamu Lodge. The facility was clean and well organized. Rooms were a modest size but each had a private bathroom, and were raised off the jungle floor. They provided a variety of trips from the lodge, boat tours, walking tours, night walking tours, and swimming on the river, if you are so inclined.
Be prepared for rain even in the dry season, although they do provide rain ponchos and rubber boots.
The guides were easy to understand and very knowledgeable.
Highlights include seeing many families of monkeys, a pink dolphin, and interesting insects during the night tour.
We though the cost to visit was great value.
This place rocks!! We traveled there in January of 2018 (not in the menu here, stupid. There was no Covid then, either). We stays for 3 or 4 nights, can't remember now exactly. HOT WATER, clean, great food and interesting guides. Loved all the trips here. We swam in a gorgeous lagoon during sunset, saw pink long-nosed dolphins, fished, saw anacondas, amazing birds, learned about so much flora and fauna around there! Very knowledgable trip for sure. Curare tree, just wow. We saw natural milk of magnesia (ate it!), we ate sour ants, used natural insect repellent, it was so much that we saw that a forest can give us, definitely interesting!! Must go!
Checked all boxes in terms of adventure, scenery, wildlife, and authenticity. Lodge is an open air treehouse with hammocks, a centralized dining area, and bar! Each party had their own elevated “treehouse” room (enclosed) equipped with toilet, showers, and mosquito nets over the beds. Guides are knowledgeable and organized. Overall, once in a lifetime trip- highly recommended!
