Maniti Eco-Lodge

Maniti Eco-lodge is located in Iquitos, Peru, a city in the northern part of the Amazon. Its carefully designed to offer comfort to travelers while also preserving the surrounding rainforest. The private bungalows are constructed entirely of secondary growth rainforest materials that blend in with the landscape of the jungle, so much so that you just might miss it! The lodge has a resolutely rustic vibe – there’s no internet, limited electricity (from 6-9pm) and no air conditioning – but you don’t head to the middle of the Amazon jungle for those amenities, you do it for the experience and the escape. One of the best things about the the Maniti lodge are the extensive tours and trips that they offer throughout the Amazon.
