Amazon Yarapa River Lodge


Alastair Sawday's Green Places to Stay

Amazon Yarapa River Lodge, Peru

Local management, local materials, local ideas, deep in the Peruvian rainforest. The focus is on research and education, and when you hold a pygmy marmoset monkey in your hand you’ll know in an instant what environmental responsibility is all about. The only road is the Amazon tributary flowing alongside; the only disturbance is the occasional sound of a paddle slicing through the water, or the blast of air from a breaching pink dolphin. The roofs and walkways are thatched and provide a natural cooling system from the tropical heat.

Full-board for 3 nights $700pp. Singles $800. Bungalows $760pp, singles $860. Includes transfers & guided tours.
