Heliconia Amazon River Lodge

An Amazon River Lodge

Heliconia Amazon River Lodge
, named after the jungle’s most stunning flower, is an exceptional lodge within a 40-hectare rainforest reserve at the Northern Peruvian Amazon. Experience authentic comfort during your rainforest stay amidst the wildlife, islands and lagoons; a perfect base to begin your low-impact Amazon adventure. Explore the jungle, see the wildlife first hand and appreciate the wonders of nature.

Enjoy treks through the rainforest, bird watching, as well as looking for pink dolphins. Our prime Amazon lodge assures you an enlightening and eco-friendly stay, yet providing you with the most comfort and convenience.


Heliconia Amazon River Lodge is located on the left bank of the magnificent Amazon River in Yanamono Communal Reserve, 80 km (50 miles) from the city of Iquitos.



Getting there:

From Lima, fly to Iquitos via domestic airlines with several 90-minute flights daily. From the Iquitos Airport, we will transfer you to Bellavista Port, where you will board our motorized boat for 1.15 hours downstream along the Amazon River to our lodge.

Our Unique Qualities:

Archetypal Amazon architecture of rustic houses built on stilts all connected by thatched roofed corridors and with a refreshing swimming pool in its inner garden; eco-friendly with limited electricity, yet safe and secure, which is the lodge’s standard.

Built by local construction masters from the Yanamono Reserve. We are committed to protecting the surrounding ecosystems in working in sustainable cooperation with our host communities. Typical Amazon cuisine, distinct flavor with global appeal.

The Lodge in detail:

Stay at an eco-sensitive, limited electricity lodge in a complex of 14 rustic clusters of native style pavilions (26 rooms) that house the Reception Area, Guest Rooms, Dining Room/Bar, Public Areas, Shamanic Ritual House and the swimming pool within the inner garden.



Admire the Lodge’s high ceilinged thatched roof made entirely of palm fronds, a rustic work of art. Rest and relax in a choice of completely screened rooms with terraces overlooking the gardens and forest or bungalows with hammocks and rocking chairs. Likewise, you can dine and unwind in the comfort of screen protected restaurant/bar.
