My seven year old son and I had the major honor of living for one week at this wonderful & peaceful jungle hotel. Compared with many other jungle camps in the district of Tamshiyacu, the two guest houses are built in a much higher standard, which surely comes out of the fact, that the host family are expats from both the U.S. & Canada, and understand what tourists want and appreciate. Rooms, beds, bath, kitchen are all fit to western standards and nicely integrated into the authentic environment of The Amazon Jungle. The grounds offer a series of beautifully cultivated jungle gardens, where Brown is working as a committed and engaged agriculturist, planting medicine plants and following an ethical path where he takes great pride in his life project, reforesting the jungle, studying natural medicine, and creating his "place of peace," in order to give something back to the world, to future generations, and to all the guests come to appreciate the gifts of mother nature.
As Brown & Pamela are not just healers and stewards of this beautiful land, but are also loving parents to a 3-year old son, they possess a truly pronounced sense for children, providing a safe place for adventure. This aspect, makes this lodge/retreat center/jungle hotel, a unique and safe place not just for individuals, but also for children and families to experience, learn & explore together.
My seven years old son connected immediately with the host family and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and hospitality very much as well. Upstairs in the lodge, the hosts made available to us a collection of musical instruments for us to enjoy. My son and I enjoyed just playing around and improvising on drum and flute together...a really nice addition to our time together.
Last but not least, I want to compliment the cook that our hosts arranged for us. We had every day excellent and healthy food, in a much higher quality as you can get it in any restaurant in Tamshiyacu.
Separate from the lodge, but related to my own travels with my Son, where an important apect was to explore the local culture of the natives, the lodge of Brown and Pamela was perfect for us because it's based just three kilometers away from the quaint jungle town Tamshiyacu (10 minutes by Motokar-Taxi). During the day we discovered the town and got in touch with the local people and their culture, and in the afternoon it was invaluable to us to come back to the comfort of the lodge, share a freshly prepared meal, and return to the privacy of our dormatory.
The jungle lodge of Brown and Pamela is very high recommended to anybody who likes a peaceful atmosphere and a clean spot to reconnect with nature, eat high quality food and recharge the inner batteries. We will come back for sure!
