Romero Rainforest Lodge
Smart and comfortable new eco lodge comprising well-appointed cabins of polished wood, on the banks of the Manú river in an area of remarkable biodiversity.
To cater for new visitors, the smart and very comfortable Romero Rainforest Lodge has been built by the rainforest research and preservation foundation CREES. On the banks of Manú river, surrounded by primary rainforest, are eight polished wooden cabins, all finished and furnished to the highest quality. Hot showers, en suite bathrooms and spacious dining and relaxation areas are available to guests.
The location is perfect for exploring the nearby oxbow lakes, home to giant river otters and black caiman, not to mention hundreds of endemic bird species. Romero is just a one-hour boat trip from Boca Manú airport.
Manú is one of the most biodiverse rainforest areas on the planet, and guests can observe wildlife all around the lodge buildings and trails. Monkeys, hummingbirds, macaws and opossums are frequently sighted among a myriad of other exotic tropical creatures. Nature lovers will also be entranced by the exuberance of the plant life.

Most Memorable Moment?: Machu Picchu... does anyone traveling to Peru ever put anything else? :-)ME, Carlisle
Highlight?: The whole of the Ausangate trek - the best short trek we have ever done in terms of scenery and local culture with the added advantage of comfortable mountain lodges.AST, Berwick-Upon-Tweed
Most Memorable Moment?: The train from Cusco to Puno ... Best day by far. Plenty of time to relax and hang out with the family in very comfortable surroundings, fantastic views all they way. Also loved Lake Titicaca ... Again a great day.KH,
There were so many highlights, but Machu Picchu and climbing Huana Picchu and the whole Galapagos trip are the most memorable.GJ, Richmond
Highlights:- It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay.ND, Lewes
Most Memorable Moment?: Perhaps looking down on Machu Pichu for the first time, or was it the ceviche for lunch as part of the buffet in the Sacred Valley, or maybe Buenos Aires( a mixture of New York side walks and Parisian Boulevards )or the tranquillity of the gardens @ L'Auberge Hotel. and not forgetting the splendour of the Basilica at CuscoAD, Cheltenham
Inca Trail: This was an incredible experience. The guide/porters were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.DH, Aylesbury
It was memorable because of the cultural and geographical variety so can't pick out particular part. We were in 3 different climates, in mountains, jungle and coast. Probably enjoyed the places where we had most interactions with nature i.e. Lake Titicaca and jungle.SL,
Highlights?: Maccu Picchu and the trains to and from the Sacred Valley, also the hotels in Cusco and the Sacred valley.AJ, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Every step of the way was amazing... But Machu Picchu was undeniably the crown jewel of the tripJB,
A short note of thanks for organising our Peruvian holiday. The fast moving itinerary went exactly to plan, all the accommodation was excellent and exactly as you described....We all thoroughly enjoyed the two weeks and will recommend JLA to friends.AF, Chiswick
A fantastic travel company for Peru. Highly respected locally. The whole Itinerary was flawless with extremely professional local reps in Peru. I believe the Inca trail company in Cusco to be the best there!JD, Swansea
Most Memorable Moments?: Seeing a forest of Puyas de Raimondi near Huarez The trek from Ascobamba to Pillcocancha particularly the hospitality of the campesinos and watching cows being milked by hand. The visit to Tarmatambo visiting the ruins and being approached by a small boy called Kevin who persuaded his mother to give us lunch. Having a small face carved for me at Molinos near Jauja by a woodcarver. He wouldn't take any money.RM, London

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
