  •   I'm an amateur wildlife photographer and have been to jungle lodges and camps all over the world and I can honestly say that Chuchini is one of the best run lodges I've ever visited. I have to admit that when I read on their website...More

      The family who runs it is super lovel! Communication before arrival is great and so helpful. The place itself is really nice. Room was clean. Even got a towel. Food is great. They even have beer and wine.
    Pretty noisy during day time when the day guests are there, extemely loud music was played which seems odd being placed in the middle of nature. With all the attraction and tours it made it seem like a little amusement park. Which is fine, but i guess i imagined it to be more like a quiet jungle refuge to be in direct contact with the nature and with possibilities to see/hear wildlife around. Although, they offer many tours for that, which i didn't go on. Can't say anything about that. I as well found it strange that the aligators were picked up, out of the water, to show them to the guests on a little evening boat trip in the lagoon. Explanations were great and interesting but doesn't seem very 'eco' for the animals. Can't be too good for them. So that's a big minus. More
