This trip was absolutely outstanding. I was incredibly impressed with how they accommodated all the different types of people. Jacu was brilliant and truly knows so much about the rainforest. I would absolutely return.

The service was friendly and personal. The rooms were very nice and clean. A good balance from our other experiences which were almost a bit too "luxurious" for us. But the price seemed a bit high that comparison being made. The location was good, close enough to Iquito at only a couple of hours at the most (we have gone...

This was by far one of the best things I've ever done in my life. Heliconia is a beautiful lodge, immaculately kept on the banks of the Amazon. Our room was right in the middle of the jungle but you still felt like you had the comforts of home whilst being surrounded by wildlife. Everyday was jam packed with activities...

We had a wonderful time at Heliconia! From the time we stepped off the boat, to the time we said goodbye, we were creating memories and learning about the beautiful Amazon. The accommodations were just what we would want and expect in the middle of the Amazon Jungle...rustic, comfortable...particularly loved time in the hammock on the screened porch, listening to...
