PLAN YOUR TRIP

TRAVEL
Get yourself to the Iquitos airport in northeastern Peru and we’ll take care of the rest. It’s impossible to drive to Iquitos from other areas so the only way to get there is by plane or boat. Since a boat would take days or weeks, we recommend you fly. We can offer travel suggestions, if needed.
Once you get to Iquitos, we’ll pick you up and take you directly to the lodge. Make sure to book your flights so that you arrive no earlier than 10:00 AM and no later than 2:30 PM and make sure your departing flight leaves after 12 Noon. If you arrive in Iquitos after 3:00 PM, you will need to spend one night in Iquitos and we will pick you up the following morning. We also can recommend you some hotels in Iquitos

Most flights to Lima require you to spend one night before flying to Iquitos the next day. Again, we can make a good hotel recommendation for you. For your flight from Lima to Iquitos, we only recommend you fly with LATAM. LATAM is the largest airline with the most options, and it can be more expensive, but delays are fairly rare with them. We recommend avoiding the other local airlines as they are more likely to experience flight delays. We highly encourage booking a direct flight from Lima to Iquitos.
Please send us your flight details to and from Iquitos so we can make sure we pick you up and drop you off at the right time.

HOW TO PREPARE
The first step is to make your reservation with us. Once you’ve done that, please begin preparing for your trip. Please consider these items…

Medications and Vaccines
Please visit this website as soon as possible to understand the recommendations of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Other similar websites in other countries are fine too. It provides recommendations separated into categories of All Travelers, Most Travelers, and Some Travelers. We recommend you schedule a visit with your doctor 4 – 6 weeks before your trip to discuss your medications and vaccines. You should also discuss antimalarial medications and possibly an antibiotic in case you have any gastrointestinal problems during your trip. Some doctors will prescribe an antibiotic which will cover you for both.

Electronic Devices
Electricity in Peru and at Amazon Antares Lodge is 220 Volts. The plugs accept two thin rectangular prongs like those used in the US. Please check the transformers on your electronic devices to see if they can use 220 Volts.

Dietary Restrictions
We endeavor to serve food that will meet the tastes and needs of all guests. When we can, we will give you a couple choices, but the menu is not À la carte. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.

Money
The currency of Peru is the Nuevo Sol. To get the current conversion ratio, type the following (but with your currency) into the Google search engine:

We recommend that you get cash from ATMs instead of converting your currency into Nuevo Soles in Peru. ATMs will generally give you the best conversion ratio. Once you get to the lodge, you will need cash for drinks, tips, and souvenirs – all other expenses are included. When you visit a local village, you will likely have the opportunity to purchase handicrafts and souvenirs.

Gratuities
if you feel they exceeded your expectations please feel free to tip your guide and your boat driver directly and/or any other member of the staff

BEST TIME TO GO
Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter – Amazon Antares Lodge remains an ideal vacation retreat year-round. In planning your trip, you will want to take into consideration the type of Amazon experience you prefer. December – May brings high-water followed by the low-water season that spans June – November. Still, the temperature, humidity, and daylight hours are similar year-round due to the lodge’s close location to the equator. Here are some of the differences between high water and low water seasons…
