How much free time you will have will depend on how active you would like to be during your trip. During free time hammocks, games, and books are available on the second floor of the main lodge. Our guests also enjoy spending time on the floating platform enjoying the view or relaxing in their treehouse.
What’s the best time to visit the lodge?
All year round.
December through March is high water season which means that excursions take place in boats more often than in low water season (April through November). No matter what time of year you choose to visit, you will see incredible wildlife and have an amazing experience.
Generally the least busy time is during January and February so if you’re looking to avoid the crowds then you can check availability during that time.
How many excursions can I choose?
We offer up to 6 excursions per day. That includes up to 3 during the day and up to 3 during the afternoon and night.
If you are looking for a more relaxing experience, you can choose one or two excursions in either time slot to better fit your plans.
How does the cancellation policy work?
A deposit of five hundred dollars per treehouse is required at the time of booking and full payment is due 30 days prior to your arrival.
Deposits are fully refundable until the date of final payment at which time all payments become non refundable.
Do I need extra cash during the trip?
We recommend bringing a small amount of cash or a card (if you are ok with extra fees) to use for soda or alcoholic beverages, tips, and souvenirs.
How do I get to the treehouses?
All of the treehouses are connected by bridges, except for treehouses 8 and 3. To access these two treehouses you will use their private staircases.
Are the treehouses safe?
Each year the treehouses are inspected by an arborist. They are made of very durable materials, built to code, and constantly reviewed to make sure they are safe for every guest as well as for the trees where they are built.
Is it safe to travel to Peru?
Although it is generally very safe, you should always take the necessary travel precautions.
