I went to Hoja Nueva during my Summer off from university on a grant-funded research trip. The experience was more than I could have ever asked for. The surrounding area in Las Piedras is perfect for biological, anthropological, and agricultural research as well as rain forest tourism. I will always consider it to be one of the most life changing places I have ever stayed. The people who run Hoja are extremely kind and they are welcome into my home for ever after no matter where I may be. I highly recommend this amazing place to anyone traveling in Peru.
