Trip OverviewThe Muyuna Amazon Lodge is located on the banks of the Yanayacu River (a small tributary to the Amazon) about 84 miles south west of Iquitos. Its strategic location close to the the Pacaya Samiria Amazon Reserve, helps guarantee observation of birds, monkeys, sloth, dolphins, fish, and more, in their natural habitat.
This is a top-notch genuine Amazon Jungle experience. However, travelers must be prepared to be out of touch with the ‘real world’ for the duration of the visit.Surrounded by abundant rainforest, the Muyuna Amazon Lodge has been designed and built in accordance with local architecture for the local community of San Juan, using all local materials in its construction.
Mostly known as a small intimate lodge, each of the 17 rooms is fresh and sealed with mesh screens on the windows and roof. Each cottage has a full bathroom, with running water, small terrace and hammock that overlooks the river. Kerosene lamps are the only light used in the bungalows.There is a large dining room for socializing and numerous hammocks to relax in.
For those who want to stay in touch with ‘the outside’, sorry but there’s no Internet here. Electricity is available, though, in the evening to recharge cameras and laptops. Most current electronics (e.g. laptops, cameras) can be safely charged using 220V current which is what we offer, but please check your owners manual first!Activities include hikes in primary rainforest, flora and fauna observation, bird watching, canoe rides, piranha fishing and day / night excursions. In the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve visitors will also have the chance to observe the exotic pink dolphin of the Amazon at their natural habitat.

Day 1 Muyuna Amazon Jungle Lodge (L,D)
Arrival and reception at the Iquitos airport and transfer to the port where our speedboat will be waiting to start our adventure up river.
Our trip up the Amazon River will be about 3 hours to the lodge, followed by buffet style lunch and accommodation. This afternoon, we will go on an orientation hike through the primary forest that surrounds the lodge to appreciate abundant flora and fauna.
Pending evening weather conditions, we’ll embark on a nocturnal canoe excursion in search animals and insects. Relax to the sound of the forest before dinner and drinks.
Day 2 Muyuna Amazon Jungle Lodge (B,L,D)
After breakfast at dawn, we’ll take a guided orientation hike, Leoncito by name, through the forest around the lodge, searching for birds, and jungle creatures such as the world’s smallest monkey, the pigmy marmoset, and the squirrel and tamarin monkeys. If you’re lucky, you’ll see the howler monkey, whose deafening roar can be heard many miles away. Taste the water that Uncaria tomentosa (cat’s claw) has within its vines – some say it can cure cancer and AIDS.
At around noon we’ll return to the lodge for lunch.
Following lunch, we’ll visit the lakes of Purura and Corrientes and have some optional activities, such as canoes on the lake, piranha fishing, identification of plants, bird watching or maybe a cool swim with the piranhas! A late afternoon arrival at the lodge gets you back in time for a cold shower and a hammock before dinner.
After dinner we’ll embark on a nigh walk in search of the numerous nocturnal creatures we can always hear but rarely see.
Days 3 Muyuna Amazon Jungle Lodge / Iquitos / Lima (B,L)
After breakfast we’ll take our small skiffs to the main Amazon River in search of the pink and grey Amazon River Dolphins, a true highlight of your trip. Then, back to the lodge for buffet style lunch.
