This is a special treat, an authentic lodge on a tributary of the Amazon, in Northeast Peru.
You get there from Iquitos. In Iquitos, Muyuna has an office and the staff will help you rent rubber boots and a plastic poncho (no umbrella needed in the rain forest).
Once at the lodge, there is a flexible program (i.e. I did less fishing, but more walking in nature than the other guests...)
Magnificent river landscapes, village teachers, huge water lilies, curare trees, tarantulas, caimans...
Unique Qualities: It is not deluxe: the (private) shower in your room is a trickle at room temperature for instance. But after I got used to the smell of the insecticide sprayed on the mosquito net, I had a superb time.
The Muyuna jungle food is actually better than the food in Cuzco.
I only stayed two nights because I was worried it would be just too wild. Now, I wish I had stayed longer.
Even though there are no windows, just screens, and the jungle noises are constant, you will sleep like a baby and wake up in a surreal dawn.
Address: About two hours by speedboat from Iquitos
Comparison: about average
Directions: I booked ages in advance, but the other guests had just popped in. Even in August, Muyuna was not full.
The transportation from Iquitos is included in the price, of course.
