completely enchanted by cotococha amazon lodge


bungalows along the river bank surrounded in lush jungle. screens for windows, porch hammocks and chairs, super comfortable rooms and bathrooms. exquisite food and gorgeous grounds. fun and informative excursions into the amazon rainforest. ecofriendly practices that lead to romantic lantern-lit evenings. dreeeeeeamy, right? cotococha amazon lodge is dreamy.

when we arrived at cotococha, in the dark of night after a super late bus ride, we were welcomed with the most sublime (super fresh and super delicious food!), candlelit dinner. we immediately suspected we were going to love this place. all suspicions were confirmed. {see my previous post about our napo river excursion, which was part of the package of our stay at the lodge!}

^^ delightful breakfasts with multiple courses! i especially loved that freshly baked bread and the fresh squeezed juices! ^^
^^ really lovely communal space. one night after dinner, we had a chocolate making demonstration here! cotococha staff showed us how the indigenous people of the amazon have been making chocolate for hundreds of years. very cool (and really delicious!) ^^
^^ a perfect little reading nook on the second floor of the communal space…surrounded in jungle! ^^

i think my favourite thing about cotococha was that each evening when we returned along candlelit paths to our cabana, there were two lit lanterns waiting for us on the steps. it was just so magical to spend time in that jungle bungalow softly lit by our lanterns with the sounds of the rainforest all around us.

it is a truly enchanting place to get a taste of amazon magic.
