Pampa Hermosa Ecolodge
A friendly and comfortable thatched wildlife eco-lodge on the banks of a rainforest-fringed river in the Peruvian Amazon.
This congenial, family-friendly eco-lodge is situated on the banks of the river Ulcumayo, a jade green, rock-strewn waterway cutting a swathe through jungle vegetation. Fringed by huge trees, and swollen with the water from excitable streams, the river is an ideal place for an adventure lodge, offering swimming and rapelling down smooth rock faces coursed by waterfalls, while trails along the bank introduce you to the minutae of tropical wildlife.
The rustic lodge consists of smart but simple wooden, thatched cottages with private bathroom (hot and cold water). Some of these cabins have terraces or balconies overlooking the forest and there are hammocks and deckchairs where you can sit to enjoy the view and watch the birds. They are fairly spacious, with comfortable beds, and feature golden hardwood throughout. There is a covered restaurant with open walls, and a bar where the walls are covered with faded photographs of the family who founded the lodge.
What our clients say
It was all good and every location was special so cannot choose one in particular.BC, Beckenham
Most Memorable Moment?: Cusco - such a great atmosphere with so much history.MH, Manchester
Undoubtedly visiting Machu Picchu. Albeit have to give special mention to Soy y Luna, Colca Lodge and Antigua Casona San Blas, they made us feel very special. Finally the organisation and the guides were all warm and friendly and made us feel like family.RS, Northwood
Peru was incredible. The slick organisation of Journey Latin America allowed us to really enjoy every moment. The service was excellent and I would thoroughly recommend.HG, Malvern
Highlights?: Visiting Machu Picchu and climbing the mountain. The hot springs at Colca Lodge. Seeing the condors in the Colca Canyon. Trying to walk 100yds at almost 5000m. :-)MP, London
“The most enjoyable… Having chocolate pancakes in the narrow cobbled streets of Cusco. And in the mountain village of Aguas Calientas. And in lots of other places. The kids having fun with the cats at the cat park of Lima. Meeting a mountain family and finding out about their way of life. This included meeting their guinea pigs – kept purely for their meat.”LBM, South Africa
