Amazon Eco Lodge

amazon-lodgeA favorite with clients, Amazon Eco Lodge is the beautiful rainforest eco lodge in Amazonas located 80 km (50 miles) from Manaus, on the southbank of the Amazon River, on the Parana do Mamori River system, upstream from Rio Juma. Because it is far from Manaus and away from most other lodges in the area, we think you have a better chance of seeing more wildlife from here.

  •  For almost 30 years Amazon Lodge has been the best way to visit the unspoiled brazilian primary rainforest.
  • The lodge is located within a 337 ha private nature reserve of unspoiled primary rainforest. It is very beautiful almost like an ecological park.
  • It's probably the lodge with the best location inviting it's guests to see and experience the real rainforest and it so easy to like the jungle tours in this area..


What a great experience to visit the amazon rainforest and wake up to the scream of the howler monkeys in the thick and dense rainforest! Learn about the wildlife and the amazonian way of doing things during your visit at the lodge. We have jungle packages and eco tours of three and four nights and also an exciting five nights jungle Safari including three out in the jungle in the brazilian jungle for those who dare.

It actually does not matter if it is high - or low level water, because the lodge is always floating on the river. It is also highly recommendable to take a swim in the warm and black river water all year round. The water temperature is usualy 26-32 degrees Celsius. Because of the acidity of waters, mosquitos and viruses which cause dengue, cholera, malaria, yellow fever etc. do not proliferate in the area and mosquitos are usually uncommon in this region.

 The lodge has "Standard Ecological Lodging" classifiction by the Brazilian Tourism Bureau and consists of a central "open air" swimming module, where it is so nice to take a swim in the warm river water.

There are 18 apartments , in which 8 of these are classified as standard with two single beds and  10 superiors with private bathrooms, all with mosquito screens. There are 3 central sanitary installations and showers and veranda with hammocks. Total maximum capacity is 36 travellers in double rooms. Fans are available for all rooms. There is a reception and bar - with comfortable sofas, hammocks and chairs, perfect for relaxing before and after excursions. Restaurant - typical architecture - rustic and all mosquito screened with a great atmosphere for experimenting the delicious local cuisine. Recreation area with a large swimming terrace where you can sunbathe, read or relax with nature. The lodge has a generator with 110V energy available at night only. No hot water is available (water temperature is usually 26-32 degrees Celsius). The lights for the rooms, as well as the service area, are supplied by 12 V battery lights.

All of the tours depart from the Amazon Eco Lodge in wooden canoes from the main deck. Please feel free during your leisure time to use our wooden dugout canoes for 2 people and paddle along the river, lakes and flooded woodland. We kindly urge you to actively participate in not disturbing the natural wild life.
