We stayed here for two nights while travelling around South America with our favourite Kiwi's in September 2009. This place is set in one of the most fantastic locations you could imagine. Its perched high above the river with epic views over the amazon rainforest looking back up to the Andean Mountains on the horizon. On our first night we...

We spent 3 nights/4 days at Shagri-La. We very much enjoyed our visit. Our main guide, Matildo, was very friendly and knowledgable about the area. The lodge was a bit rustic - but that was our expectation. The view was absolutely gorgeous. The adventure level for our family (2 kids - ages 17 and 14) was just about right, and...

Having already spent four wonderful days deep in the jungle four hours down the Napo River from Coca, I did not expect too much from the Shangri La and its programme of activities, but I enjoyed myself nonetheless. The best thing is the location on a bluff overlooking a bend in the Anzu River. The lodge itself is ramshackle and...

We recently spent 3 nights at Shangri-La, arriving in Tena after a long bus ride from Quito. Julio at Amagaronchi was very helpful in advance and very easy to deal with, but we arrived to find that our schedule had changed dramatically. Instead of canoe trips to villages, journeys to wildlife preserves, and the opportunity to go rafting, each day...

The Quichua people who own and work here are amazing tour guides, and after our visit, we are proud to call them friends, too. Shangri-La, where we stayed, is perched atop a river bluff overlooking an Amazon tributary. It's romantic, exciting, and perfect to view from the many open-air hammocks. The bungalo lodging gives it a Swiss Family Robin style...

I warmly recommend Amarongachi as a tour company. It is local, authentic, they own 2 lodges, Amarongachi and Shangri-la. Shangri-la might be a little bit more comfortable and the views are astonishing. If you feel like being completely disconnected from the rest of the world, it is the place to be, you won't regret the experience. Our tour guide, Alex...

Last month we went on a 3 day jungle trip to the beautiful situated Sangrila lodge, owned by the Amarongachi company. It was the best organised trip during our three months journey in South America. The office in Tena described in detail the accommodation and we could choose the content of our trip. We decided to go for adventurous activities,...

I have stayed at Amarongochi at least 8 times. I always look forward to being amongst such a wonderful welcoming family. You really see what life is like for a family surviving on ecotourism in the Amazon. It is such a real place, I think that perhaps Dino from New York should stay at a 5 star hotel then things...

Do not stay at Amarongachi Lodge. We were absolutely disappointed and thoroughly disgusted with our stay at Amarongachi Lodge in the Amazon jungle, February 2-4, 2008. I have traveled to 36 countries/108 cities and I have never stayed at a place so dirty and filthy in my life. Basic lodging does not mean filth. We experience the following: Top bunk...
