Staying vs Living the Rainforest – Amazon Lodges

Believe it or not, Amazon lodges can provide some of the highest quality accommodations during your South American vacation or honeymoon stay.

Despite common assumptions, a stay in the rainforest doesn’t require you sacrifice any of your usual big-city comforts. After a full day of exploring the steamy primeval rainforest, you’ll return to what we can only call the “tropical elegance” of your lodge. Entering your refreshingly cooled cabin, you’ll find a sparkling shower, high-quality Peruvian linens, a 42-inch smart TV and cold drinks to be savored in the privacy of your own screened-in balcony with a fantastic lake view.

At a luxury Amazonian lodge, you find no lack of the creature comforts, only that many of these niceties have been interestingly adapted to the jungle environment. Take, for instance, that soothing hot shower; more than likely it will have been collected from rainwater and heated by the sun. You can also delight in eco-friendly terracotta exfoliates, biodegradable products (many of them made locally), meals prepared through local and sustainable farming techniques, and furniture crafted entirely from the jungle itself.

And no – an authentic jungle experience won’t be diminished by your receiving exceptional personal service and a full range of amenities while at your lodge. In fact, from these you’ll find yourself even more refreshed, fueled up and ready for your daily jungle trekking and canoeing experiences. Whether your breakfast includes croissants or indigenous casabe, you’ll fill up on international or local fare before heading out with your expert naturalist guide for a day of jungle treks, canoe excursions, parrot clay lick visits and climbing tall towers for breathtaking views from above the forest canopy.

While the best lodges already provide the higher quality programs and the most expert guides, Surtrek can push the envelope even further and have these field excursions custom-designed to suit your particular interests. For active birdwatchers, your tailor-made birding program will have you waking up before dawn and led deep into the jungle in search of the specific birds to want to add to your sightings list – be they Harpy eagles, cotingas or Amazonian Motmots. Similarly, a wildlife-watching itinerary can be designed for you to observe Giant Otters families as our canoe crosses a lake, spot the glowing eyes of caimans on the riverbank during a nighttime jungle safari, or experience the hair-raising roar of a troop of howler monkeys high in the forest canopy.

We can even organize family trips, allowed through extra spacious rooms, private tubs and special kid-friendly activities that will get them on an ecology and conservation kick.

And don’t count out experiencing at least part of your South American honeymoon with a starry-eyed stay in the Amazon. Picture the two of you sitting out on your private balcony as the sun goes down over the forest canopy while you sip a glass of Malbec as the creatures of the forest begin their nightly serenade to the beat of a tropical shower. Now that’s romantic!

All of this is possible through an upscale stay in the rainforest, where you’ll enjoy the immediate experiences of this fascinating environment as well as deepen your life-long appreciation for this remarkably bio-diverse region.

Ask us what highlights each lodge has to offer. Surtrek has been covering the Ecuadorian, Peruvian, Brazilian, Colombian, Venezuelan and Bolivian Amazon for years, and we’re more than happy to share what we’ve learned.
