Atta Rainforest Lodge & Iwokrama Canopy Walkway

Atta Rainforest Lodge & Iwokrama Canopy Walkway

Deep within the Iwokrama Rainforest lies a remarkable rainforest lodge and tree-top canopy walkway. Atta Rainforest Lodge sits in an opening in the forest and offers a complete immersion in the rainforest experience. Lovely gardens attract over 12 species of hummingbirds and lawns lead to the forest verge, where Black Curassow, deer, monkeys, Red-rumped Agouti and sometimes tapir come to feed.

Simple but comfortable rooms feature ensuite bathrooms with open-to-the-sky showers, so the birdwatching extends into your rooms. The open-sided dining room overlooks the gardens and weather permitting dinner will be under the stars, enjoying the sounds of the rainforest at night. Atta is well known for its indigenous influenced home-cooked meals and its warm, friendly hospitality.

An easy 15-minute walk along a forest trail leads to the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway, a series of suspension bridges and decks of up to 30 metres in height and 154 metres in length. This allows close up views of the mid and upper canopy of the forest and allows wildlife to be relatively free from human intrusion. This is an excellent platform for birdwatching or simply enjoying the unique opportunity to be in the tree-tops.

The forest around the walkway contains some well-maintained trails allowing access to various habitats with opportunities to spot a Jaguar. The birding, in particular, is extremely rich and includes several Guiana Shield endemics.

Atta Rainforest Lodge is located in the heart of Guyana's Iwokrama Rainforest Reserve, one of the most pristine rainforests left in the world. Its secluded location allows for a complete immersion in the rainforest experience.

Great place to stay and excellent customer service! The staff at the Georgetown Marriott was AMAZING!!! I stayed here December 23 through January 3rd (except for NY Eve). Ashanti checked me in and made sure everything was expedited and pleasant. The restaurant that served breakfast had delicious local food. I had peperpot that was so delicious! I enjoyed the bake and salted fish. Nathalie and Akeem at the restaurant were so hospitable that I couldnt wait to go back the next day! Other staff whose names I could remember are Davina and Fariyal. The room cleaning service was great. Sometimes I would come back to warm turndown service and little beautiful notes. I stayed here 3 times and I am looking forward to my 4th.

My only thing is that the hotel card key deactivates when in close proximity to your credit cards etc. I would have loved if at all time when I went to the front desk for reactivation, they would have asked for ID. They did ask a few times though, perhaps I stayed there long enough they knew who I was.

See you again soon! More
