We spent 3 nights at Chalalan and have recommended it to everyone we have met since! We are budget travellers but decided to splash out on a stay here and did not regret it for a second. The location is idyllic - 5 hours by boat away from civilisation and right in the middle of stunning rainforest. The lake at the lodge is an added bonus - bathwater temperature and the most beautiful of locations. The sunset trip across the lake by canoe was a highlight of the stay - by far the best way to see the wildlife as it is completely untroubled by the silent canoe drifiting past.
