Ceiba Tops

SSwimming Pool & Grounds, Ceiba Tops, Amazon River Basin, Perutrategically located only 25 miles down the Amazon River, with air-conditioned units with hot water showers, Ceiba Tops is ideal if you have only one or two nights to spend in the jungle. A swimming pool and room service complete the recent improvements. Garden walkways connect each room to the dining room, bar and hammock house. Originally Explorama Inn, Ceiba Tops retains the first ten separate thatch-roofed cottages with private porches and baths, electricity and ceiling fans. Expansion plans are now completed on 32 new, air-conditioned units, with hot water showers, telephones and internet access. Treks through virgin rainforest and boat trips to neighboring villages are only part of the activities available. Nights at Ceiba Tops can be combined with stays at the other lodges.

Explorama Lodge
Further down the Amazon (about 50 miles) is the more typical jungle lodge, Explorama Lodge. It is nestled in primary rainforest with more than 30 screened rooms and adjoining bath facilities, and is completely illuminated by kerosene lanterns. A variety of hikes and boat trips are at the disposal of the guest including the Seven Bridges Trail. A minimum two-night stay is required. Expedition boats take you deep into the virgin rainforest.


ExplorNapo Camp

Over 100 miles from Iquitos in the Sucusari Nature Reserve is the privately-owned Plant and Animal Reserve and ExplorNapo Camp. Very basic facilities (thatch rooms with beautiful views down the Sucusari Stream, kerosene lighting, a screened dining room/bar, open-hearth cooking and solar-powered fans) do not disturb the flora or fauna of the area, which is why people choose to stay at ExplorNapo Camp!

Nature in the Microcosm
Nature in the Microcosm

During the minimum two-night stay at ExplorNapo (plus one night at Explorama Lodge or Ceiba Tops), the explorer takes a half-day trip to Lake Shimbay, a black water lake where the unusual Hoatzin bird can be found. Canoe excursions can be full-day, half-day, or short trips in the late afternoons or early mornings. Most important is the full-day excursion to the ACEER Laboratory and the "Canopy Walkway." A donation to the Peruvian conservation organization (CONAPAC), which maintains the Canopy Walkway and surrounding reserve, is included in the basic tariff for guests staying at ExplorNapo Camp.


ExplorTambos
ExplorTambos individual shelters with mosquito netting.ExplorTambos is a primitive camp deep in the virgin rainforest reserve of the Napo River, a two-hour walk from ExplorNapo Camp. Overnight excursions to the Tambos may be added on to your basic ExplorNapo package, or one night may be substituted at an additional cost. The Tambos have a maximum capacity for 16 truly adventuresome explorers, who share this wilderness experience, sleeping in individual shelters with mosquito netting (shelters for couples are also available), eating meals cooked on an open-hearth fireplace, and using the Tambos as the departure point for newly opened trails. Due to the Tambo's isolation, the possibilities of spotting wildlife are much better than from any other lodge in this part of the Amazon.
