Amazon Eco Lodge
Amazon Lodge is the beautiful rainforest eco lodge in Amazonas located 80 km (50 miles) from Manaus. For almost 30 years Amazon Lodge has been the best way to visit the unspoiled brazilian primary rainforest. The lodge is located within a 337 ha private nature reserve of unspoild primary rainforest on Rio Juma. It is very beautiful almost lika en ecological park. It´s probably the lodge with the best location inviting its guest to see and experience the real rainforest and it so easy to like the jungle tours in this area.

There is a reception and bar – with comfortable sofas, hammocks and chairs, perfect for relaxing before and after excursions. Restaurant – typical architecture – rustic and all mosquito screened with a great atmosphere for experimenting the delicious local cuisine.

The lodge has a generator with 110V energy available at night only. No hot water is available (water temperature is usualy 26-32 degrees Celsius). The lights for the rooms, as well as the service area, are supplied by 12 V battery lights.
Because it is far from Manaus and away from most other lodges in the area, we think you have a better chance of seeing more wildlife from here.
