Passing down into the Amazon Basin we left Highway 30 and headed north on Highway 45 (Troncal Amazónica—Amazon Trunk). Turning onto 436 just south of Tena we headed west along the Rio Napo until the road ran out. But our trip this day was not yet over. We still had a ways to go to our lodgings for the night. So, into the river boats we went for the final leg on this Amazon tributary.
It took several boats to accommodate our group.
Our destination for the day was a marvelous resort built by a gentleman originally from Interlaken, Switzerland — Arnold “Beni” Ammeter. This is la Casa del Suizo Rainforest Eco-Lodge, where we lazed about in the pavilion while our rooms were assigned and our dinners readied.
While my fellow travelers imbibed I decided to take a gander at the common areas of the resort, starting with the views perched above the Rio Napo.
Here are the common areas of this luxurious resort:
The grounds to the lodgings are equally as picturesque and impressive.
