I stayed at La Casa del Suizo for two nights on a Gate1 tour. It was the best part of the trip. The rooms are large with modern amenities, but no TV, phone, or Internet, which is actually great. A screen separates the room from the balcony so that you can hear the birds from the inside. The balcony has a hammock and great view of the river and jungle. The resort has beautiful flowers and plants. An open restaurant is next to a nice size pool. They serve buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is good. The staff are attentive and courteous. The jungle guides are excellent. This was a memorable stay in an Amazon paradise.

This place was beautiful. We had to travel by small boats on the Napo River to get here. The cabins were clean and had electricity but no AC. The windows had screens but no glass so we could hear the sounds of nature all night long. The meals were always nicely prepared and presented but I wish we could have tried more traditional fare as well. We went with local tour guides to visit nearby communities as well as hike through the jungle and raft down the Napo. I really had a great time. The staff was accommodating and friendly and made our stay really memorable. I would highly recommend this opportunity to anyone.

First..the staff and guides are super! The rooms are very large, comfortable. Loved the 20 min. canoe ride to the lodge. The hike was great…somewhat strenuous …they supply knee high rubber boots for hiking….take socks and insect repellent, and rain ponchos…but if you forget them, they have a shop that sells everything you’ll need (cheap)! The pool was clean and warm, very relaxing!
