The word “Amazon” conjures up fearsome images in even the most intrepid traveler. But don’t worry, numbers of all-inclusive eco-lodges in the Amazon rainforest provide some of the highest quality accommodations and well-qualified guides for accessing and exploring this miracle of nature. What’s more, you won’t sacrifice any of the usual comforts found in the city. If your penchant is for the creature comforts — like soothing hot showers, terracotta exfoliates, fine bed linens, thick robes and rubber-soled slippers — these amenities are the order of the day in the more upscale lodges. In addition, most lodges offer tailor-made guided trips for avid birders, adventure seekers and wildlife watchers. So 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 sleep the stress-free sleep of this region’s indigenous peoples – gifted with a sense of what it means to be in harmony with nature and their own human essence.
“I enjoyed the scenery and the exotic wildlife on the islands very much. The airport transfers in both directions went smoothly and the service on board was very good.” Nikola Dimitrov
