Comfort for our guests and ecological concern go hand in hand at Juma Amazon Lodge. The world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor, has given us the GreenLeaders badge, gold level. This is a great honor coming from the website who has more than 200 million reviews.
Juma Lodge was already born in an ecological and sustainable way as we comprehend that without the forests the hotel would not even be a possibility. The Rainforest is more than fundamental to us, it’s our root. Therefore the lodge was built to fit the trees and the environment the best way possible, and not the other way around. All materials used in the construction of Juma are native and found abundantly in the region, carefully extracted from the surrounding area.
We gladly offer our guests the most amazing experiences with ethical, social and environmental responsibility.
Juma Lodge has been awarded TripAdvisor GreenLeaders status
But why is this badge so important? Because it means our ecological activities have great impact on the nature around the lodge and it also assists travelers on choosing their next stay. It’s a way to recognize who is doing something for our environment’s preservation and increase ecological conscious.
