Treehouse Lodge is located on the beautiful black waters of the Yarapa River – a tributary to the Amazon River near Iquitos, Peru. As there are no roads connecting Iquitos to the outside world, the only way to get there is by boat or airplane. From Iquitos, the journey to the treehouse hotel – first by car, then by boat – takes approximately 2 1/2 hours. The boat ride begins on the Marañón River, crosses the Amazon River, and continues up the Ucayali River before connecting to the Yarapa River. The amazon lodge sits right on the Yarapa where the Cumaceba connects, making a beautiful view of the black and brown water confluence. Arriving, you will truly feel “away from it all.”
Treehouse Lodge sits on 350 acres of preserved, primary Amazon Rainforest surrounded by thousands of acres of additional protected land. Nearby is the famous Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve – one of the largest protected areas in Peru, boasting of the greatest biodiversity in the world. Iquitos is considered the capital of the Peruvian Amazon. During the 20th century, it expanded during the rubber boom, but is now known as a major river port, surrounded by 3 rivers. The area is also known for hosting the largest traditional market in the Peruvian Amazon and it’s amazing floating city that comes out during high water.
