Well-run and stylishly decorated wildlife lodge, offering a particularly varied range of excursions and an award-winning family programme.

This atmospheric lodge, of simple rustic design but offering contemporary comforts, is a popular choice for visits to the Peruvian Amazon. Two small clay licks near the lodge attract colourful parakeets, making for a memorable visit at dawn. There are loads of exciting rainforest experiences you can take part in and the guides are knowledgeable and skilled.

A highlight is the impressive 30m high observation tower, penetrating the treetop canopy, which offers a bird’s eye view of the surrounding tropical jungle. Drones are released from the top, to take photos as part of aerobotanical scientific research – you can help programme the drone and watch this happen.

You’ll stay in one of 30 modern, en suite guest rooms featuring polished wood, above is a loft space open to the steeply-pitched thatch roofs. The rooms are connected by raised boardwalks; there are no windows, but one wall is open to the forest: you will be able to listen to all the sounds of the jungle's nocturnal life but will be safe and sound under your mosquito net.

A cocktail bar, hand-made hammocks, an artisan boutique and a spa offering Amazonian massages add yet more value to the experience. This agreeable lodge has won an award for its innovative family programme – children will have a wonderful t time here, both adventurous and educational.

  • Fantastic guide and a great place to stay, food local and simple but excellent

    JS, Taunton
  • Be prepared for an experience that is not first world but unique and unforgetable. Coping with the creepy crawlies, extremely high humidity and heat was bound to be a challenge…

    JT, Glossop
  • “The Posadas Amazonas (Puerto Maldonado) was a good example of an eco-hotel.”

    AG, Putney
  • Amazing for the middle of a jungle! Large rooms with better than expected bathrooms. Great food served in restaurant. Good bar service. Guides well informed and well organised. The concern…

    JB, Alcester

Our Expert's Opinion

Excellently run; there are few creature comforts, so you really feel like you are in the jungle - but you are very well looked after.
