PACAYA SAMIRIA AMAZON LODGE (PSAL)
4 DAYS - 3 NIGHTS AT PACAYA SAMIRIA RESERVE
Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge located 2 hours and 10 minutes from the city of Iquitos, is the only Ecolodge located within the buffer zone of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve and this is one of the factors that motivate our guests to choose us.
Our 130 own hectares make us the Ecolodge with greater extension and natural diversity of the area, for which our guests initiate “a personal communion with nature from the moment of arrival”. The privileged views and sounds of the Pacaya Samiria Reserve can be appreciated by our guests at every step and moment of the day from our Ecolodge, which makes your time here “not measured in money, but in sunrises and sunsets.”
