Ecopark Jungle Lodge Overview

Amazon Ecopark Jungle Lodge is a tourist, scientific and educational complex. Created in 1991, this privately owned property opened its jungle lodge doors to guests in 1995. The lodge provides a convenient location close do Manaus (approximately 1 hour) on the Tarumã river, a tributary of the Negro river. The lodge operates its own transfer (shuttle van or bus to a river pier and regional boat to the lodge).

The lodge has 70 bungalows in 22 stand-alone structures (being rebuilt in brick), each with 3, 4 or 6 apartments. A striking feature of the Amazon EcoPark is the distribution of these structures under the rainforest tree canopy. Each apartment has its own entrance from outside, a balcony, screened windows, bathroom with electric shower, air-conditioner and mini-bar.

All units are comfortable and decorated with Amazonian handicrafts.
