What We Love
- An eco-friendly stay high in the Amazon rainforest canopy, with breakfast, lunch and dinnerSleeping in the tops of the same trees that house monkeys and tropical birds
- Savoring the hearty, nourishing Peruvian fare served up at the main lodge
- Opting to take an excursion to see Amazonian plant life and wildlife, like macaws or pink dolphins
What To Know
- Treehouse One (Dos Ramas) is closest to the main lodge while Treehouse Eight (The Cradle) is the most secluded
- Five different monkey species have been seen around the retreat; you'll likely catch sight of squirrel or howler monkeys on your treehouse bridge
- Treehouses are enclosed in mosquito mesh and indoors you'll find a safe, first-aid kit, fire extinguisher and walkie talkie should you need to contact the main lodge
On the black waters of the Yarapa River in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon sits Treehouse Lodge, a 345-acre rainforest preserve. This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning jungle habitat boasts unparalleled access to the wonders of nature, with its unique lodgings set high in the canopy. Between the primary-growth rainforest and the hotel’s eco-friendly measures, such as using solar power to self-generate electricity, this stretch of tropical land is essentially untouched.
During your stay, you’ll benefit from unforgettable excursions to appreciate the local plant life and wildlife, although there’s more than enough nature to go around on the property itself. On the premises, you’re likely to see five species of monkeys, colorful macaws and parakeets and, if you venture to where the Yarapa meets the Ucayali River, even a pink dolphin. If it sounds extraordinary, it is – here in this beautiful stretch of the rainforest, extraordinary is perfectly normal.
Good to know
The hotel is committed to making its setting comfortable for all its guests. Staff will transport your luggage to and from your Treehouse, and paths are lit at night to ensure a safe walk to and from the lodge. Mosquito netting protects every bed.
Consistent with the property’s eco-friendliness, showers feature only cool water.
Treehouses are breathtaking structures, set high in the trees in the middle of the jungle. You’ll find them equipped with fresh, white linens, a sink, a toilet and a shower, plus comfortable and tropical-inspired furniture, including one king or two twin beds. The showers only supply cool water, but after a day of adventure you’re sure to enjoy the refreshment. A fine layer of mosquito mesh around the Treehouse and every bed allows you to appreciate nature without distraction.
Enjoy three Peruvian meals a day at the Main Lodge, which provides shelter from the insects and the elements. Inventive dishes of protein and vegetables will nourish and satisfy you during your stay.
Set on the Yarapa River, a tributary to the Amazon River, Treehouse Lodge is an Amazonian sanctuary. It has 345 acres of preserved Amazon rainforest to its name, plus protected land surrounding it, so you’ll feel completely immersed in an untouched portion of primary rainforest. Treehouse Lodge is also located near Iquitos, Peru, considered the capital of the Peruvian Amazon. Here, you’ll find the largest traditional market in the region, plus incredible biodiversity at every turn.
How to Get There
We had the best time out here in the Amazon jungle.
We didn’t know what to expect.
The company picked us up from our accommodation in Iquitos and brought us by taxi to the boat which took about 1 1/2 hours. From the boat then to our lodge took about the same time but you don’t feel the time pass looking at all the scenery around you.
The Lodge itself was unbelievable with a very warm welcome. We had been booked in to one of the tree houses but was getting reconditioned so they put us up in number 10 which was perfect. It had a balcony overlooking the river and great fun waking the canopy walk ways to get back and from the tree house.
The food was fantastic and we had so much fun doing the fishing trip and seeing the dolphins. We caught some piranhas and cat fish. Which they cooked up for us for lunch.
But the best of all was our guide Roberto he was the best would highly recommend him. He went above and beyond so we had the best and most rememberable trip.
The treehouses themselves are excellent and very well maintained and clean. Good nets to perfect from mosquitoes. But it’s guaranteed you will get bitten at some stage.
At the time of booking I thought it was a huge amount of money to book but once you get there and all your trips/excursions and food is included it makes sense and well worth it.
Would defo recommend and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.
This was such an incredible experience for my wife and I!!! To start we rated in treehouse 7 and the treehouse was very remote locations of the lounge. We loved every bit of this part of our trip to Peru. The treehouse is such a unique experience, and the netting surrounds the entire room so bugs aren’t really an issue if you keep the door for the room and the netting On the bed closed. The food that the chef made was amazing including the piranha and catfish we caught!! Our guide Pepe was awesome as well!! He was extremely knowledgable about plants, animals, and the Amazon history itself. He went above and beyond to make sure our trip was the best. Let us feed monkeys, hold sloths and even gave me the opportunity to hold an anaconda. He pointed out dolphins, birds, snakes, spiders, monkeys (5 different species), and different species of medicinal plants!! I would highly recommend treehouse lodge and especially our guide Pepe!!!
We loved our time here. Willie our personal guide is a real asset. Felt safe always. If you have mobility issues it may not be the place for you. Didn't see the amount of wildlife we had presumed we might and the pink dolphin is not as showy as his sea cousins. Plenty of food, including local dishes. We had lots of rain as we were arriving so the walk to get on the boat to get to the lodge was a little tricky. Take binoculars. We stayed in room 8. Isolated but 95 vertical steps to get there! All staff were friendly and obliging. Choice of wine was either a white or red and not great quality. Pisco sours more than made up for it!
Wow! We loved this place and our time here so much! The Tree House property was impressive, beautiful, fun and just amazing to be able to experience so much of the natural beauty of the Amazon. Every staff member was kind, helpful, caring and genuinely fun to be around. The staff was extremely prompt in returning e-mails, answering questions, and making our trip as smooth as possible. Having a personal guide for our time was amazing! Our guides Oscar and Hope were wonderful in sharing so much of the beauty, they were fun, intelligent, kind, amazing at spotting animals along the river and were so great in packing our time full of fun to make the most of our three days in the jungle. Martin was excellent in making drinks and being kind in his service in the dining space. My friends and I would have loved to spend more time here on our trip. The treehouse rooms were beautiful! Can't believe how spacious and amazing they were. Truly a dream experience.
Treehouse Lodge is an amazing experience. How often does one get to be in the midst of the Amazon rainforest in comfort? We saw a group of monkeys swing by while in our treehouse. Our guide was knowledgeable and there was a lot to do while there. Do leave your city slicker expectations, as there is no hot water, the electricity and running water shuts off before midnight and you do see some insects inadvertently get into your room with you. But then you get to hear the orchestra of sounds at night and you realize how amazing it is that you are hearing this firsthand and not from some iTunes “Sounds of the Rainforest” soundtrack!
