Ecotourism Peru

Our newly completed field house in Tarapoto, Peru is now available for rent. This modern house is located along the infamous Carretera Tarapoto-Yurimaguas and is quite literally at the doorstep to the Reserva Communal Cordillera Escalera. The house itself is built upon a ridge with both second story balconies facing east providing guests with an unobstructed private view of the breathtaking sunrise over the lushly forested mountains. The house is a fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 and a half baths, and fully equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs.

One of the greatest features of the house is an infinity pool, which allows for a picturesque view of the Tarapoto Valley to the west and the rainforest covered slopes of the Cordillera Escalera to the east. An afternoon cocktail in or around the pool is a great way to end the day.

The Understory House is located only at kilometer 6 on the Carretera Tarapoto-Yurimaguas and is situated on an 11 hectare (approximately 22 acres) primarily forested property. From the house you are within close proximity to Tarapoto, while being immersed comfortably within the biodiversity for which the region is renowned. A brief 15 minute drive gets you into Tarapoto, where you can enjoy all the amenities of city life, including many great restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and even some brand new movie theaters. If nature is your thing, the many waterfalls and the splendor of the Reserva Communal are just minutes away.

Transportation to any of the regional attractions or neighboring towns is just a phone call away. Contact information for friendly and reliable transportation services is on hand in the home. Similarly, menus for restaurants in Tarapoto that offer delivery will be available for those times when you want to stay in and relax.

Two of the bedrooms have double beds, while the third offers bunk beds, allowing 5 or 6 people to sleep comfortably. Additional cot, if necessary, can be made available.

Our rates are $150 USD/night or $900 for a week. Additional discounts may apply for lengthier stays.

Small group Eco Tours will be offered a few times throughout the year. Our 2018 dates will be announced soon. A sample itinerary and more information can be found here. Custom tours can be arranged at almost any time if the dates for one of our small group tours do not work for you. Please contact us for more information.
