We recommend the purchase of travel insurance.

Travel protection should be purchased to cover most penalty costs in the event you need to cancel or change your travel plans.  It also can provide medical and emergency assistance protection.  Amazonia Expeditions does not assume responsibility for problems or losses arising from the operation of flights such as cancellations, delays or lost luggage. If you do not take the recommended flight and arrive late you may have to pay for a chartered private boat to the lodge. For protection against problems with airlines or other problems such as illness or political or natural disasters beyond control of the tour operator we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance.


The trip was wonderful! We enjoyed every bit of our stay and tour in Amazonas.

Just wanted to say what an amazing experience staying at the lodge was, I only wish I had stayed longer… I hope I can come back again soon.

It was incredible and a trip of a lifetime Paul! My sister Paula and I had an amazing time and loved everything — your facilities and staff are top notch and I want to come back with my husband and daughters!!
