FULL WEEK COMBINATION PROGRAM 7 DAYS AND 6 NIGHTS TOUR

The Explorama Lodge Reserve, located 80 kilometers down the Amazon from Iquitos, has been protected by Explorama since 1964

The rainfall here may be at highest in any month of the year, depending upon the year studied. This lack of a defined dry or wet season, through which many species of plants and animals would be unable to survive, is believed to be the major reason for the extremely high diversity in both flora

The ExplorNapo reserve includes the area occupied by ExplorNapo which started as a very rustic palm-thatched covered split-palm sleeping platform and is now a lodge with rooms, a large hammock house and screened dining room. The newest of the Explorama reserves in this area is the Sucusari Reserve, a recently purchased piece of land with over 50% secondary forest which we hope to nurture back to primary status.

Located 40 km (25 miles) from Iquitos, Ceiba Tops offers the luxury of air-conditioned rooms, private bathrooms and elaborate tropical gardens surrounding the pool, water slide, hammock house, Esmeralda Coffee Lounge, dining room and Toucan Bar.

Please contact us for more information and for pricing.

Note: We require minimum two passengers traveling together If single traveler ask for the supplement.
