Acajatuba Lodge: "Amazon Experience" Manaus Hotel Tip by jbeaumont

Manaus Hotels: 41 reviews and 55 photos

The Acajatuba Lodge is an excellent way to experience the Amazon Jungle if you do not have much time. (4-5 days). The rustic lodge is very comfortable, set right on the Rio Nego about 3-4 by boat from Manaus. The people and guides that were there were wonderful and my wife and I felt right at home. The food was good, not a lot of variety... but fresh, and good tasting. The tours and guides they provide were an incredible experience. This far up the river you get to see lots of different wildlife.... we saw all types Monkeys, Birds, Spiders, Snakes, Fresh Water Dolphins, Caymens, Piranha Fishing! 2 guided tours everyday... (1 in the morning / 1 in the afternoon). We will definitely be going back and staying here again. The Hotel is small enough and intimate enough to get to know all the guest and staff. Extremely Friendly! and well recommended lodge!

Unique Qualities: A great way to experience the Amanzon in just a few days time... Right on the River edge and lays into the Jungle.
