Highly recommended- Best experience!

Amazon planet made our visit to the Amazon very personalised and memorable. Our tour guide Luis was very knowledgeable and his English vocabulary was so extensive he could answer any question we had about the animals or the jungle with so much detail. The activities were all well planned. My favourites were the jungle walks including the night walk and our visit to the animal rescue centre. All meals were included and they were all amazing. They also took care to provide meals that suit dietary requirements and preferences. I’d definitely recommend Amazon Planet to anyone looking to visit the Peruvian Amazon.

Absolutely amazing!!

Our entire experience there was absolutely amazing. The friendliness of the people who work there made us feel like we were a part of their family. Jas was welcoming and accommodating. The cleanliness of our lodge was impeccable and the food was phenomenal! Our tour guide, Alejandro, was friendly and knowledgeable of everything. It is clear that he is passionate about his job as he was engaged in everything we did.The tours were fun and informative. We loved exploring the jungle and looking for wildlife from the boat. The rescue centre warmed our hearts seeing all the sweet animals there, learning their new skills so they are able to thrive on their own in the wild. We will definitely return.

Amazing experience and appreciate the magnificence of the Amazon Forest

We stayed in one of the river bungalows, nothing like the quietness of the night - no lights, no sounds except those of the forest and the howler monkeys early in the morning. Excellent service, rooms clean and well setup, staff friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Lots to do, morning and night walks, floating down the river in inflatables, amazing walk and canoeing trip to Lake Sandoval - it is a time to just stop, admire the beauty of the forest and the amazing animals and a great reminder of how valuable our planet is. Alejandro was our guide - very helpful and informative. Food was fabulous and plenty of it, fun to mix with other travellers from all over the world.

A truly fantastic experience

We loved our stay and experience in the jungle with Amazon Planet. The area is beautiful, the bungalows are clean, comfortable and very nice, the food is amazing, and the staff are awesome!! The staff are super friendly and always available. Our guide, Ronal, was also awesome in teaching us about the Amazon and wildlife in it, as well as Amazon Planet itself, and it's conservation projects. We wished we could stay longer! I strongly recommend this place to anyone interested in taking a trip out into the jungle. Fantastic experience, and a great, fair price point, which also contributes to great causes undertaken by the organization! They are also very responsive and accommodating
