What Our Clients Say

Kayla B

We had a beautiful time at Anaconda Lodge. The grounds are stunning and the rooms were very comfortable. Every single meal was delicious. We enjoyed listening to Francisco's stories, getting insight into his background and learning about the connection of the indigenous people to the Amazon, and our guided walks with Cesar were so eye opening and we saw lots of interesting insects and animals. I would love to go back to Anaconda Lodge one day and I highly recommend it to anyone considering a visit to a lodge in the Amazon region.

Will White

We can’t say enough about how wonderful Anaconda lodge was. One feels like a family member rather than customer. The food is amazing healthy and very tasty. Each cabin had a hammock which was fabulous for reading, relaxing and napping! Tubing in the river not only was refreshing but also relaxing and fun. Francisco and Silvia are the owners of this rare find. They not only care deeply about helping the locals but also are onsite addressing any and all customer needs. This is a must visit!
