The Amazon Expeditions lodge is called “Curassow Amazon Lodge”. The name Curassow comes from the name of a rare bird called the Waddled Curassow.
The Wattled Curassow, a threatened species near extinction has been spotted several times in the area of our lodge and we’ve named our lodge in it’s honor.
Curassow Amazon Lodge is located on the Yanayacu River, a small tributary of the Amazon River, is approximately 50 miles (110Km) south of Iquitos, Perú, the largest city in the Perúvian jungle. Our eco-lodge consists of ten interconnected bungalows, a dining room, a lounge area and the kitchen.
