A short flight from Lima to Iquitos We were greeted by our guide Orlando .. a 2.5 hour car ride we arrived in Nauta and took a river boat about 1.5 hours to the Jungle lodge. What an amazing experience as you went farther and farther into the remote area. We were provided w three meals a day with great portions and Marco the chef takes pride into every meal. Alejandro our boat driver and bait catcher :) is training to be a guide and learning English. You can tell how serious he takes his job and is so kind wanting the guests to have the best time possible. Last but not least the man who knows quite possibly everything about the Jungle, Orlando. Always smiling and laughing. Activities included bird watching, piranha fishing, sloth holding, trip into the village for volleyball, jungle trekking, a lodge party we orchestrated and dolphin watching and a day fishing trip. It does get very hot and humid during the day from 11-4 so that’s when we took our showers. Bring water wicking clothing and everything seems to stay damp. We had no cell phone service for 5 days but it was exactly what I needed. I left the Jungle well rested, destressed and felt like I was home the entire time I was there. Orlando and his staff are a real 5 star experience.
