Rio Amazonas, a 35 kms de Iquitos, Maynas Province, Loreto, Peru
"Review of Cumaceba Amazon lodge We were strictly told to catch a flight to arrive before 8am as that was the time the tour started. We were up at 230 AM to catch a 5 AM flight so that we would arrive in time for the tour to start. INITIAL MEETING We arrived at th Airport, bombarded by salesman and no board with our names. We happen to ask a man who looks like he is apart of the tour company. He takes a photo of us, which was strange then escorts us to another man who escorted us to the driver. We approached the parking area which had shuttles and decent looking tour busses. We walked past all these to the most broken down car. It looked like a shell. Rusted and beat up. This couldn't be true. Our drive was uncomfortable and disgusting. The seats were filthy and the windows were all broken and couldn't be wound up. TOUR OFFICE AND START OF TOUR Finally we get to the tour office. This kicked off the start of what would be many a time wasting excercises. We walked up the street, took a corner and arrived at the next office. This was meant to be our city walking tour. . It was early so we should have at least sampled some local food for snacks or for breakfast. To us this was a waste and didn't need to be done. It was now 10am, why did we even need to arrive before 8am as we were just sitting around for now 3 hours. When we arrived at the second office. Our group was 8. We sat in their reception and the jungle guide pointed at a map and showed us the geography of the area and where we would be going. Then he says we need wellies or rubber gum boots because it's wet and muddy, 10 Soles each. To me this should be included in our package. They know it's wet, they know there are jungle walks? They have scheduled the walk? Now I must pay extra so I don't die on their walk. Seems like a money making exercise. We have to rent the boots now, what other choice do we have. To top this event off, we had to tell the guide and his associate our size about 5 times. Each time he would walk into the room, get one pair and leave the remaining 7 of us wondering what was going on. We re hashed our shoe size with the man, again this cycle happened. If I did not ask repeatedly for a pair I would have not gotten one. Another bad experience. Bad experience no 3 was trying to get my change back from the same two men. This was a joke. Instead of doing one thing like getting change, they were carrying bags, supplies to a room, aimlessly strolling around without any rush or assurance. Again if I didn't ask, my change would have disappeared. We hang around for over an hour with no instructions, no refreshments, no guides. More groups of people come in and guides start explaining everything in they had said in the walking tour. why put us through that walking tour ordeal? This would have sufficed. We get told to wait when we ask what is happening. Without explanation. Being the polite people we are, we oblige. Any other people would have lost their "
"This company is reliable, although you need to ask them what you need exactly and they will provide. They keep improving many things to make your experience a real good one and that’s good. They include in their tour wonderful experiences and the food is pretty good! Again ask what you can not eat so they are aware. The stuff is responsable, they will be there to help always. In general terms it’s been and unforgettable experience. "
"I did a day tour with this company. It consisted of a traditional boat ride, learning about the culture of a Native tribe, visiting an animal refuge, dolphin spotting and lunch was included. Our guide was friendly but most of his info came from us asking questions. When we weren’t asking him anything he was either on his phone or sitting away from us on the boat, at lunch, etc. The visit to the Native tribe seemed very rehearsed and was awkward. When we got to the animal refuge the official guide wasn’t there so our tour guide showed us around and wasn’t able to give us much info on anything and did not try to intervene or help when a monkey started peeing on my girlfriend and biting me when I tried to get it off (a funny experience in hindsight, not so funny while it was happening). The redeeming factor was the delicious lunch. Also the tour guide never had a bad attitude or showed frustration with us, but was simply not very engaged when we weren’t asking questions. All in all, not a terrible tour just very mediocre and not a bang for your buck"

Rio Amazonas, a 30 kms de Iquitos, Maynas Province, Loreto, Peru
"The place is just beautiful. The staff is friendly, speaks English and welcoming. The Lodge's are nice, clean and a good size. Breakfast, lunch and dinner war excellent. Nothing better then freshly prepared food after a long walk in the jungle. Electricity is available from 6pm till 10pm so you have time to charge phone and cameras. Heads up there's no hot water at all. Just keep it in mind. There is a pool if that's something you are looking for in a jungle ;) "
"This is a really nice place, and very comfortable. I went for New Year's Eve and there was a cozy and small party, with the people staying and working there. Freddy was the best guide. I would want to emphasize that he was a really great guy who helped me find my phone, that fell from the canoae (he dived and managed to get it!!, and he did it selfessly :) he deserves a hundred points!!!"

30 km down the Amazon river, Maynas Province, Loreto, Peru
"From being picked up from the airport in the early morning, till being dropped off at our Iquitos hotel, 3 full on days later, this trip was amazing. Our wonderful, musically talented, humorous, knowledgeable and insightful guide Oscar was superb. We had a really great group -a young couple from Lima and a Peruvian/Puerto Rican family with grandmother and two young children - which made it very special. The manager and cook willingly catered for our dietary requirements, (gf, df and no fish!) - nothing was a problem and the food was excellent and plentiful for us two females. The trip out to the village to meet the local tribe was great. We drank, danced, blew (non poisonous) darts through the pipe and bought some craft items. We had a sunset boat ride and drifted on the Amazon river peacefully. On our night walk we were lucky to see a rainbow boa, along with a few spiders and felt the odd mosquito! The provision of gumboots by the lodge was a great idea and we had bought ponchos, but fortunately it only rained when we were inside. We spotted grey and pink dolphins and several birds on our Day 2 trip. We did a jungle walk learning about the rainforest and the people living there, as well as the history of this special area. We visited an animal rescue centre, holding sloths, and tried some Amazonas medicinal products. Added bonus was that our second night was New Year's eve, and we celebrated appropriately - dancing with the local tribe who came to perform, had complimentary bubbles from the management and cocktails made by Franco. We stayed up till midnight having Camu camu followed by Salsa dancing, with some lessons from Franco for us kiwis. Even managed to go Piranha fishing the next morning. Great place with excellent staff."
"When I read reviews from other people, it really sold me on how beautiful experience it would be BUT; 1. I went during the rainy season (Nov 22-Nov 25, 2019) and it rained on two days out of the three. We got drenched one day even with the raincoat and since there was no sun, our clothes smelled like mold. Rain trickled into my rainboots and was walking the way back with wet socks and feet. 2. Our room didn't have light for the first two days in the morning and we had to use our phone lights to navigate around the room. Magically they turned the lights on on the third morning because a big group arrived the previous night. While we were there, we only had light from 6:00 pm-9/9:30 pm. 3. No-fault of the hotel, but because it was so wet outside and raining, because of humidity, our bed felt damp when sleeping. 4. Coldwater shower was another pain for us. It was not cold but it wasn't warm either to have a cold shower. I realized after this trip that I am not really into this kind of trip. I don't like having dead insects on my mosquito net, I don't like having cold showers when it is cold, I don't like having tours when it is wet, I don't like to live without power, even for a few days so please look at the pictures carefully and really decide if you are really as brave as you think you are! The best things about the tour were the staff, the people at the lodge and the interaction we got with the animals at the animal sanctuary."
"I recently stayed at Amazonas Sinchicuy Lodge for the 4 day tour. From the minute my guide, Golbert, picked me up at my hotel until the minute he dropped me off in Iquitos, I was busy with activities, boat rides, pirahna fishing, hiking, and looking for pink dolphins. The experience was amazing, but the people made it even better. Golbert was a fantastic guide, Franco was so warm and welcoming, and the cook/housekeeper told the most interesting stories. Food was amazing! I would highly recommend this experience for anyone who is heading to the Amazon for the first time."

Calle Raimondi 138,Interior 1, Iquitos, Loreto, Peru
"I was beyond impressed with my experience with Amazon Canopy Expeditions!! Carlos, the manager, was very nice and spoke excellent English when explaining the itinerary for the trip. I did 3 days and 2 nights in the jungle and it was the perfect amount. There are other options though if you want to be there longer or shorter. My guide, Adiano, was fantastic. Very thoughtful and told me about all the plants and animals in the jungle. It was a very authentic experience and we met real people living in Amazonian villages. We swam in the river, hiked through the jungle at sunrise, rode in a canoe and explored for frogs at night. PLUS SO MUCH MORE!! The lodge we stayed at had wonderful food and wonderful people. I could not recommend this enough! 11/10"
"My father and I went to Iquitos and booked this while in the city. We had been offered a visit to the Isla de Monos, which this company also does, but wanted something more natural. Carlos the owner explained how the trip would work very well, and all travel was taken care of from our hotel, to the excursion, and then back to the main office. Price per person /S 250. Sameer (sp?), our guide, took us about two miles into the forest, sometimes on, and sometimes off a main path. He was very informative and enjoyed helping me practice my Spanish. His English was clear and his Spanish was slow; gracias! He was a good travel companion. Pickup was at 9AM and we were back at office at 5. Lunch was also delicious and plentiful."
"Me and my girlfriend wanted to hike in the Amazonas rainforest and the Amazon Canopy Expeditions was a great choice. We had a great and professional personal guide, Lener, who knew a lot not only about the fauna and flora but also he has his own experience with the habits in the Amazon, like which plant is used for what and why, etc. Afternoon we could choose whether to go fishing or continue with Lener to the second part of exploring forests. Of course, we went to the forest, took rubber boots and machete! :) Thank you again, Lener! Only one con: the lunch was so small."

Jr. Napo 258, Iquitos, Loreto, Peru
"The hotel is far from perfect but it is the best stay in Iquitos. Customer service is questionable. I had a dispute with the front desk about room rate - considering I could purchase a room online for 30$US per night cheaper than the hotel was charging me. They did not match the rate so I booked online. I was impressed by the way one of the front desk staff dealt with my upset and so I emailed the manager of the hotel to congratulate this member of staff. But the manager and no other hotel staff got back to me about my email. For a Double Tree Hilton (and I have stayed in these hotels around the world), that shows a lack of professional and integrity for the customer. I expect better from this group. But it is the best hotel in Iquitos so I put up with it for the time I am here. If there was a hotel that was at the same standard in Iquitos, I wouldn’t have stayed here as many nights as I did. "
"The hotel should be the best hotel in the area. The entrance is the Plaza of Arms and the Tin House. The top foods of Iquitos are near the hotel. The hotel is about 30 minutes away from the airport. , Check in and send chocolate or something, you can also help to book a taxi, the downside is that the hotel price is not cheap but does not include breakfast, about $ 11 per person, food is average, restaurant is small. There is no free shuttle service, the taxi to the airport is 25 Sol."
"Everything perfect, except the reception gave me the attitude about the room card keeping errors, just one time , and other two times was when I checked in "

Selva Vida Lodge & Retreat Center, Maynas Province, Loreto, Peru
"I stayed at this resort for just over a week. My jungle guide became my friend I highly recommend victor a friendly english speaking guide who brought me out of my shell. This guy is incredibly knowledgeable about the jungle around him. He kept me informed at all times. I came to iquitos for ayahuasca and I must have lucked out with this company. Iquitos is full of touristic commercial ayahuasca centers who's focus is making money. I heard you have to be careful about choosing a good shaman that genuinely wants to help you. What I discovered was selva vida lodge is a hidden ayahuasca gem. Not only do they work with a humble knowledgeable shaman from the village of Santa Maria but they also prepare you for the ayahuasca ceremony by doing the kambo poison tree frog venom cleanse. If your looking for a jungle excursion this is the place for sure. If your looking for an ayahuasca experience this is also the place to be. Be sure and ask for guide victor and shaman richard."
"How do you summnarize a trip where you see remarkable and majestic natural beauty, have adventues of all sorts from walking local markets and exotic foods, to hiking in the amazon, fishing for piranha, or hugging a sloth to name but a few of the adevntures you will have. The education shared on culture, customs, plants and their uses, food chain, or the effect of climate change on the amazon. This was a growth trip for me and I know the amazon has more for me to grow into so I need to return to finish the lessons it has to teach me, are you ready for a Peruvian adventure of a lifetime you will never forget?"
"This is a fantastic weekend trip that exposes you to a totally new environment in just three days. The landscape is beautiful with opportunities to connect with the local culture, see amazing plants and animals, hike, fish and take some awesome boat rides. The staff is what made the experience truly special. They are extremely knowledgeable and go out of their way to make sure you have a fantastic experience. Also, sloth hugs... need I say more?"

Napo 362, Iquitos, Loreto, Peru
"Iquitos Double Tree Hotel now after refurberishing. Right on Mayor Square and one block from Amazon. Great location and location. Never here before when people gave it bad reviews, but nothing b a d today. It does look on shabby side from outside but welcome to Iquitos and it's history back to the rubber barons. "
"The only reason I can figure that this hotel gets any good reviews is that there is another hotel in town that used to be called the El Dorado Plaza. The pictures are very misleading - the window in our room had an opaque film on it so you couldn't see out at all, there was mold everywhere, there were ants all over the beds, between the sheets, etc. and there was no hot water. When I called the front desk they sent someone up who put their hands under the faucet and proceeded to tell me that the child water was actually hot for them. It was so cold, my 9 year old wouldn't even get I to sit in it to cool down when it was 90 out. The air conditioner poured all over a nightstand all night long, not just dripping, pouring. The bathroom was set up in such a way that you couldn't open the door ask the way because it crashed into the toilet. We stayed in a thatched roof hut for 3 days after this hotel with no electricity and it was still nicer than this dump. They also charged us more than the hotels.com booking was for. I would not recommend this place unless you are desperate - the Doubletree is just down the road and for a few dollars more, you could stay in a 5 star hotel with actual hot water and staff that didn't lie to your face."
"The good thing is the location. The rooms are clean and with good size but a bit outdated. Breakfast is nice. Bug drow back the lack of touristic information provided by the staff and the hotel. When asked about tours receptionist send us to plaza de armas. In most hotels I stayed in Peru there is always some kinda information you can find in the hotel. Overall it's a good place to stay in."
