fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I HIGHLY recommend the Amazon trip. It was everything I had hoped for and more!! From the activities to the people to the food - top notch! The guides and staff go above and beyond to really ensure you get to experience life in the jungle. This is an absolute must book weekend adventure!
If you are a wildlife lover, you cannot miss this trip.
A once-in-life time experience. Bring a lot of big spray and be ok with maybe not getting a full nights sleep (lots of animal noises at night, local tribes drumming etc), but it‚ was all worth it. Luis and Alan were incredible hosts and the whole weekend was thoughtfully curated with a nice balance of activity and down time. From piranha fishing, to monkey island, visiting a local village and tribe‚ it was a wonderful weekend!
They even baked a birthday cake (in the AMAZON!) for the birthday of someone in our group! They were wonderful hosts!
This weekend blew me away. I have never been on a tour where the guides were so invested in making sure we had an incredible time. Definitely the trip of a lifetime!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this weekend adventure to all Remotes! It was an absolutely unforgettable complete package of the "Amazon experience" with both water and jungle adventures!
Luis and Allen (the local guides) are so kind, so incredibly knowledgable (they happily answered my never-ending questions), and definitely know what they are doing.
Some of the things we got to do (in no particular order): boated up and down the main and backwater rivers, met a local tribe/villagers, fished for and swam with piranha, held monkeys at Monkey Island, did a nighttime and an early morning jungle exploration, got to see so many various plants/trees and of course a great variety of animals in the wild (pink and grey dolphins, sloths, monkeys, sooooo many incredible birds like Toucans, Hoatzins, herons, hawks, vultures, owls and the unique sounding Russet-backed Oropendola bird, bats, frogs, tarantulas, butterflies and fireflies... to name just a few), saw a rainbow, a shooting star, and the most beautiful clouds, and finally explored the Iquitos market and even ate grilled larvae/"suri"! Accommodations were at an eco lodge in the heart of the jungle, with the most delicious authentic meals prepared by Olga (such a fantastic chef), and the always smiling and sweet Americo was behind the bar. The hammock hut was wonderful and fun to relax in, and going to sleep/waking up to all the sounds of the jungle (while safely protected in your private bungalow), is absolutely incredible!
Insider tip: Be sure to bring crew length socks, as you often wear the rain boots they provide, and just ankle socks aren't too comfortable. Also bring plenty of cash (smaller bills), for the bar, buying handmade stuff from the local community, and for tips to the team at the end of the trip (trust me, they so deserve a good tip for how awesome they are)!
