Limited internet access is available at our lodge to allow you to stay connected while you enjoy your stay in the Amazon. Although the connection usually works well, since it is via satellite, inclement weather can be disruptive, and if too many people log on at once, it can be very slow.
Electricity is provided by solar panels and batteries, so you can recharge camera batteries during the recommended charging times or use a CPAP machine if needed. The lighting around the lodge is provided by soft LED lights rather than the more dangerous kerosene lamps used in most other lodges.
Throughout the duration of your stay, daily laundry service can be provided for a small charge. Laundry staff can be found at both lodges.
The culinary staff is well trained in sanitary food and water handling and preparation which provides a unique opportunity for our guests to eat even salads and unpeeled fruit, which are items that are not generally recommended for consumption by tourists in South America. Special diets can be accommodated with prior notice.
Amazonia Expeditions provides basic equipment for you to use during your stay. This includes camping equipment for those participating in the camping experience, as well as basic fishing supplies and boots. More advanced equipment for peacock bass fishing, and other more rigorous activities has to be provided by the guest.
Both of our lodges have modern flush toilets and showers, which use a sanitary septic system. The water used in the plumbing comes from a well rather than from the river, which is typical of most jungle lodges. However, like all other jungle lodges, we only have cold water showers to prevent the spread of mycobacteria.
