We are located in the high amazon jungle in peruvian mountain rainforest. So first of all, you need to book a flight to Perú, in the main international airport in Lima, the capital city. After you need a connection to the airport in Tarapoto City.
San Roque de Cumbaza, the small town in wich we are located, is approximately 35 minutes from Tarapoto. We provide a transfer service from the airport to the ecolodge, at a separate cost. Please contact us if you want to request it.

When you arrive at the ecolodge, you cross a bridge and walk 10 minutes to reach our facilities. We provide a luggage loading service so that you can walk comfortable, without carrying any weight.
