Fundo San José Eco Lodge
Nestled among groves of orange trees and lush cloud forest in the hills overlooking La Merced of the Chanchamayo Valley, the Fundo San José Ecolodge is a peaceful refuge run by the descendants of Italian immigrants.
Accommodations consist of ten bungalows, each one containing two guest rooms, a full bathroom, a telephone and a spacious terrace affording spectacular views of the valley and surrounding hills.
There is a beautiful swimming pool that's open year-round, a special area for bonfires, a conference room and guests have access to a wireless Internet connection and parking area.
The hotel is also an ideal starting point for exploration of the surrounding highland rainforest. Treks can be arranged for people of all abilities to visit waterfalls and observe native orchids, exotic birds and bizarre insects.
When night falls the sky fills with brilliant stars to the delight of astronomy lovers, while on the grounds of the hotel itself guests are welcome to join in on seasonal gardening tasks.
The amiable and dedicated staff provide guests with a range of services including tours, laundry service, safety deposit and luggage storage.
The hotel is located mere minutes from the town of La Merced, in the hills overlooking the Chanchamayo Valley.
