Tsimane - Pluma Lodge

THREE UNIQUE GOLDEN DORADO RIVERS FROM ONE PREMIER SIX GUEST LODGE

Pluma Lodge is located within a National Park and Indigenous Territory where the Amazon Jungle meets the Andes Mountains. These clear-running rivers winding through jungle and mountains afford you the ability to wade and sight-cast to golden dorado. This jungle environment remains in a virgin state and is arguably one of the most pristine natural expressions in the world. Based from the comforts of the Pluma Lodge, you have access to three diverse rivers: the Pluma, Itirizama, and lower Sécure Rivers. The water types vary from deep pools to rugged, terraced pocket water.

Fishing

The Pluma River is a moderately-sized clear freestone river with incredibly beautiful jungle topography. This fly fishing only lodge offers varying types of waters and tribs carved into various beats. There are four main species: dorado, pacu, yatorana, and surubi catfish.

Accommodation

The Pluma Lodge experience is based on one jungle lodge built entirely from sustainable hardwood. The main Pluma Lodge features six single or double-occupancy cabins for six guests per week. Each cabin has spring beds, private bathroom with hot water, and electric light.
