Ceiba Tops Lodge & Resort Iquitos
If you are planning a trip to the Peruvian section of the Amazon rainforest you would be crazy to pass up on the opportunity to spend the night in one of the secret lodges, nestled between the trees. The Ceiba Tops Lodge and Resort is a great option for families or couples. You’ll be able to fall asleep to the cries of wildlife and rustle of the breeze in the leafy canopy above your head. If you’ve ever wanted to disconnect from reality and immerse yourself in nature, a jungle lodge is just the trick.
The Ceiba Tops Lodge
There are many jungle lodges hidden away in the Amazon Rainforest but if you are looking for something a bit special then check out the Ceiba Tops Lodge just 25 miles outside of Iquitos, Peru’s primary jungle destination. The lodge sits on the banks of the Amazon River and offers guests an unprecedented level of luxury and comfort.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Ceiba Tops Lodge is how spacious and green the grounds are. As sunlight filters through the leaves of the trees and warms up the decking, there’s nothing better than making yourself at home in a hammock and watching the world go by. When it gets too warm, the swimming pool, equipped with a water slide to keep your kids entertained, is perfect for cooling off.
The rooms are simple, but elegant and more than adequate to ensure you get a perfect night’s sleep during your stay at the lodge. Bright colors are splashed on the walls and bed, while big windows flood the rooms with natural light, creating a bright and breezy ambiance. Each of the wood-panelled cabins is equipped with its own ensuite bathroom, kitted out with everything you’ll need to make yourself comfortable. Most importantly, the rooms are air-conditioned – a vital component when you are dealing with the extreme heat and humidity of the Amazon Rainforest.
You might not know this, but Peru is the foodie capital of South America. While the rest of the continent eats rice and beans, Peru feasts on a huge range of delicacies. The Peruvian Amazon region has its own local culinary delights to offer its visitors and authentic meals made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients are offered each day. To top off the meal, expect a platter of fresh fruit and glasses of freshly squeezed fruit juice.
For those who need to stay connected during your vacation, the lodge now has a WiFi connection in its public areas. While it is always better to disconnect and be at one with nature whilst in the rainforest, that isn’t always possible and Ceiba Tops has accommodated for this.
If you start to get itchy feet whilst at the lodge and decide you want to embark on an adventure, there is a full day excursion along a canopy walkway for guests staying two nights or more at the lodge. This offers you a chance to get up close and personal with the jungle and to observe some of its wildlife from a more intimate vantage point.
When the sun sets, nothing beats lying out underneath the sky and watching the millions of star twinkle over head. The feeling of being away from everything is truly magical and one that is hard to recreate in other parts of the world. The only tricky thing will be eventually making yourself leave.
The Ceiba Tops Lodge makes the perfect base for people who want to explore Iquitos. This region is known for its indigenous tribes who practice the forgotten art of jungle medicine. Spending time in Iquitos presents a fantastic opportunity to learn about a completely different culture, try some new delicacies, and gawp at endless swathes of natural beauty.
