We booked a jungle trip to Sandoval Lake from Cusco (the guy was Edgar and it was a bit strange, but we trusted him). We arrived with the bus, got picked up, could sleep in the hostel (35 Soles per night per person) and the next the we went to the jungle. They have always a guy in the hostel... More

Tarantula Eco tours organised our 4 day Amazon stay. We were picked up from the airport and had lunch at the hostel before being dropped off at the river. Half an hour boat ride and an enjoyable 2hour walk along a easy muddy track we arrived at our lodge. All our photos turned out amazing. You cannot go wrong with... More

We booked our tour in Cusco through Macaw Adventure Perú Tour located on Calle Suecia, just a short walk from Plaza Des Armas. David, the owner, was very helpful and organized everything including our transportation to and from Cusco. Once in Puerto Maldonado, the owner of Tarantula Eco Hostel met us and handled everything on that end. We had our... More

Had an overnight stay at the hotel. The room was very basic but the staff were great people. Wifi seems to go down once in a while due to the ISP. The hotel is very close to the airport maybe 5 minutes or so. The town is still has a lot of dirt roads and very country feel.

Always ensured we had clean comfortable rooms. Gave us all the info we needed for a fun and adventurous time in PM. Abed was happy for us to... More

I was suppose to stay here in June 2014. First off they were suppose to meet us at the airport they didn't. When we did manage to find the place on our own they were unapologetic. The room they took us to smelled horrible spider webs everywhere and dusty dirty. I always check beds immediately for bed bugs and one... More

My university friend and I travelled from Cusco to do the 2 day/ 3 night tour provided by Tarantula eco-tours. I have recommended it to everyone I know already. We arrived by flight; the lodge is a very short tuk tuk ride from Puerto airport. - I advise that you get your own taxi; the lodge will pay for it... More

The bed was fine. The shower was hot. Breakfast was good. The Wifi worked. Abdel was nice enough to pack the bow and arrow set that I'd purchased from the Matsiguenka Tribe inside a pvc pipe so I could bring it home on the airplane as packed luggage. Playing with the neighbor's monkey, Lula (and several of her chums) was... More
