What people are saying about Loreto, Peru

Green House Tambopata is a gem in the jungle. It's not deep in the jungle, but that makes it easily accessible and also since the rooms have giant mosquito nets as windows, you really feel that you are in the jungle, syrrounded by nature. We could also spot somw sloths and monkeys right next to the lodge on the night walk. Overall, the tours were great (not in the same order aa described here because they adapted to the weather to make sure we get the best experience). Charly, the owner, is an awesome guy with tons of knowledge about the area and his concept of building this lodge together with locals and educating lical guides for the tours is well worth supporting. Also, you get the best insights from locals! Would definitely recommend this experience! Also communication with Charly via WhatsApp was very seamless and he was quick to respond to any questions and keep us up to date about our tours for the day.
