Amazon tour guides/companies, Iquitos

Hi,

I am looking for recommended tour guides/companies to visit a lodge for 3 or 4 nights in the Amazon around the Iquitos area. I heard Muyuna Lodge is very good however I am unsure how to go about finding a good guide or company who take tours there.

Thanks

It seems that most of these jungle lodges provides their own tours and guides. We are booked on a jungle lodge for 2 nights, before we go on our boat cruise. This jungle lodge is all inclusive with meals and a number of tours and activities to choose from. They will also pick us up from the airport and transport us by car then by boat to their lodge. At the end of our stay, they will take us to our boat cruise. Perhaps your jungle lodge will provide the same type of services??

Thank you! It does seem like they can be booked through their websites as you mentioned although very few do short stays eg under 5 nighs.

Thanks for the help

Many lodges will provide transport from the airport to Iquitos, and on to Nauta, further down the river, and a delighttul indian village where you can buy-or your husband-many herbs to aid with erectile dysfunction. As these are all sold by elderly indian salesladies, and all look the same, it is a fun experience listening to them cackle. God knows what is in these jars, but it is harmless and worth the look on your wife's face. Whatever you decide, make sure you are picked up at the airport, transported to your hotel, and taken to Nauta for the boat ride to the lodge. It is rustic, fer shur, but fun, so get into it! One of my favorites- is Amazon Reise Eco Lodge, which is a bit further into the jungle, but safe and fun-do NOT swim at night!

My wife and I spent 4d/3n at Muyuna Lodge last January. An English speaking driver pick us up from the airport to their office for briefing. After a an hour of walking tour around Iquitos, we headed to a 3-hour, 140 km boat ride to the lodge. Our guide (all their guides) speaks English well. They also took us back to the airport after our stay.
