The Amazon Rainforest

The lushness present throughout the region is mind-blowing, with tall forests that reach heights of over 50 meters. Within lies the most complex and intricate network of life our planet holds, and many biological and environmental studies suggest that it is here, in this very specific northwestern edge of the Amazon, where biodiversity is greatest worldwide.

These legendary jungles have been off-limits to most of modern civilization. But what if we told you that you can experience the extremely pristine, natural realm of the Amazon Basin not only in all its grace but in all comfort as well. And what’s more, by doing so, you’ll be helping to preserve one of the world’s most special and valuable ecosystems, considered to be the “lungs” of our planet…

First-tier Amazon jungle lodges offer the best of both worlds: they provide visitors the jungle just as it is, and do so in cozy, well-appointed accommodations, with all your creature comforts at hand and first-class service.

In the Amazon Basin, temperatures are high, but local architecture using bamboo and featuring high thatched palm-leaf roofs promotes ventilation, which keeps interiors pleasant. Breezes coming in from rivers and lagoons also help to cool things off. In the Amazon, there is a lot of precipitation all year long, through rain can subside. Usually, the wettest months fall between March and September.
