Here we are once again to talk a little bit more about our jungle hotel so you’ll find answers to the questions you still have and feel more comfortable to plan your vacation to the Amazon Rainforest once and for all. Believe us, when you finally come to this special place on Earth, you’ll ask yourself what took you so long.
Juma Amazon Lodge is located 62 miles (100 km) southeast of Manaus in a fully preserved area of 17,300 acres (7.000 hectares). It is located on the Juma Lake, where the water is black and acidic and the mosquitoes don’t easily reproduce. Therefore you don’t need to worry about diseases like Yellow Fever, Malaria, Chikungunya, Zika or Dengue. Also, there are mosquito nets in every single room. All of the windows and doors are screened with mesh. Nonetheless, we advise you to bring your repellent with you.
Choosing to stay at Juma Lodge is one of the best ways to visit the unspoiled brazilian primary rainforest.
There are 19 bungalows built on stilts! All of them with private bathrooms with hot water solar systems, porches with hammocks, mosquito screens and fans for ventilation. The bungalows offer a great deal of privacy, and it’s quite common to have close and personal encounters with the local wildlife.
There is a variety of daily excursions, including guided forest walks, bird watching, boat trips and visits to the small indigenous communities that border the lakeshore. You can go river swimming or join jungle treks with native guides, where you’ll learn all about the riches of the Amazon Rainforest. The rates include transfers, activities and full board (Brazilian breakfast, lunch & dinner buffet style). Mineral water is included during the whole trip. Coffee and juices are served as well. Soft drinks and other beverages may be purchased at the bar.
Notes to remember
For safety measures and personal comfort, maximum luggage allowance on the boat is 10 kg (22 lbs) per person.
