Undoubtedly, this has been one
of the most exciting adventures of our lives! Walking
through the Amazon jungle has provided us with an
unforgettable experience about the richness of its
natural resources and the beauty and value of its
fauna and flora. Visiting the small villages of Vista
Alegre, Puerto Miguel, Feldar and Jerusalem has been
most enlightening. The people are warm and friendly
and their needs great and quite obvious. We will make
our family and friends back home aware of the situation
for the purpose of contributing in a significant way
to help improve the life of the underprivileged.
As for the Yacumama Lodge,
it is simply beautiful, most hospitable, the
staff is attentive, the facilities are comfortable
and well maintained, and the meals are very
delicious and healthy.... Congratulations to
all of your success and good luck!
With a bit of anticipation we
came to the Amazon looking for excitement and adventure
on the river and in the jungle. We found all this
and more at the Yacumama Lodge. Norman and his staff
have created an oasis in the jungle. We were able
to experience more than we imagined. Our guide, Octavio,
was a wonderful and entertaining person to be with.
We wish everyone at Yacumama
success and happiness in all their endeavors.
With fond regards,

Dear Lawrence and Norman,
I am in awe of your vision, dedication
and hard work! It is an honor to be able to spend
this time at the Yacumama Lodge with the incredible
team that you have drawn together. I especially appreciate
all that you are doing to be living in harmony with
the river, the forest and the beautiful people. Thank
you for enriching my life!
Dear Lawrence and Norman,
The sounds, the sights, the experience.
THE BEST! You have created a dream-vision-reality.
I confronted my fears and conquered some of them.
My memories will last my entire lifetime. Thank you
for your level of being. You will give many
people experiences that will change their lives. I
am honored to be here and inspired with your integration
of the Peruvian people. What you have done is off
My best to all.
A Zen Master once told me that
"when you're busy you're free." I believe
you are not only busy but also blessed to have such
a vision as Yacumama. Thank you.
G'day, G'day Yacumama
You've all been so very kind
and made us feel very welcome. Norman has truly lived
up to the reputation as a master of the lodge and
ye olde story teller. We will long remember our fun
Adventure abounds on excursions
with Steve and Eduardo. Both looked after us extremely
well. Thanks again.

to become another one
of the world's most exclusive places. We had
the advantage of a life time with Esteban, Juango
and Catalan. No one is going to believe our
talesguests who read this journal are
the only ones who will really understand. Laura
is so charming and refined, Miguel is world
character. Life, death, growth. It's all happening
here. Good and evil, wild and tame. Norman
you are a generous genius. Thank you. I hope
everyone adjusts to sharing this place with
your many future guests. Best of luckand
