Why Lokal Recommends Libertad Jungle Lodge

Background

Community Project started in 2000| Locally Owned with 100% local staff

A Unique Story

The center of the project is the village of Libertad. There, Manuel, one of the village figureheads, is the man pushing with all his energy behind this project, coordinating everything that revolves around it, from infrastructure matters to the  hosting of visitors, and everything that this implies! He has lived in Libertad for his whole life and lives there now with his wife and the younger of their 10 kids.
The booking and liaison person who will help schedule your adventure is Oli. Based in Belgium, Oli met the owner Manuel back in 2000 when he took a trip to the Jungle Lodge. After falling in love with the lodge and the area, Oliver continues to support Manuel through all of these years by managing the website and encouraging travelers to visit the beauty of the Iquitos region!

Community Connection

Libertad is 100% community managed and self funded. It is managed by a team of 12 villagers (partners), all of them working actively for the lodge. The vast majority of the income generated stays in the lodge and with the people operating it. A small portion of the income is allocated to covering food, fuel, and transportation costs. The lodge profits also help to fund community projects. The fact that the team is mostly made up of "partners" ("socios" in Spanish) is also your best guarantee for a motivated staff! The team is highly committed and does its best at making you truly happy about your stay. It can be estimated that Libertad Jungle Lodge project greatly helps to raise the standards of living of some 15 families.
