The CHALALÁN Ecolodge stands on the shore of the magnificent Chalalán Lagoon and combines elegance and comfort using local materials to respect the traditional building styles of our community, San José de Uchupiamonas.
The design and distribution of the different rooms making up our Ecolodge were planned down to the very last detail by us Josesanos, taking advantage of our knowledge of what the jungle provides. The walls are made from the Copa Palm (Iriartea Deltoidea) and covered with matting, the roofs are woven with asaí palm leaves (Geonoma Deversa) and the floors made of fine hardwood make the CHALALÁN Ecolodge one of the most luxurious places to stay in this part of the world.
