Camacuma LodgeDecember 9, 2018 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 26 °C
It is the rainy season here and the water is already starting to rise. Most of the walk from the boat to the lodge was done over a small raised walkway. Later in the rainy season the boat will be able to turn off of the Amazon river and go much of the way to the lodge.
The Lodge consists of a cleared area with some buildings for cooking, dining, general washroom hammocks and a pool. Each group or couple had a small cabin with good mosquito screening, a couple of beds, a small wooden safe, and a bathroom.
