(30 km from Iquitos) Each of the 32 rooms has a private shower and bathroom,
and can accommodate 1 to 4 guests. Kerosene lanterns light your room and are
scattered along the wooden walkways providing a romantic glow, illuminating the
night. Activities include leisurely natural history walks, visits to native
communities, fishing, early morning birdwatching, canoeing, night hikes, and
excursions in search of the mysterious pink river dolphin.
The first and the largest of Paseos Amazonicos Jungle Lodges facilities, is
located on the Sinchicuy Creek, a tributary of the Amazon River (45 minutes
downriver, NE of Iquitos) near the river community of Santa Maria de Ojeal.
This lodge has been built on high terrain (it never flows). After walking up the
stairs that connects the wharf with the lodge, visitors find themselves in what
it seems a beautiful tropical garden where a great diversity of flowers, birds
and butterflies abound. Found within the spacious "main house", the lobby, the
front desk and the dining-room and bar areas; right next and connected to this
building by an elevated walkway, stands the panoramic "round house" used as
reading-room, gallery, auditorium and also as second dining facility whenever
necessary to serve large groups.
Rooms are located on the opposite side of the "round house" and like-wise
connected to the "main house" by an elevated walkway. Most of the 32 rooms are
doubles but there are also triple and even quad rooms. All of them have private
bathrooms with shower. Rooms and public areas are screen-protected against
insect and intruding wildlife. Additional to the previously mentioned buildings
and rooms, this lodge has a hammock room, an observation deck to the creek,
kitchen, storage rooms, laundry, public bathrooms and service support
The Amazonas Sinchicuy employs sustained water supply and water treatment
systems; environment friendly solid and liquid waste disposal and biodegradables
