I was very happy with my stay at Inotawa. They are close to Puerto Maldonado. I was a single female traveller and they were accommodating. I had my own room and made great friends at the lodge. The prices are reasonable. The best part was that there were only 3 people in our group so we could cover a lot... More

I chose Inotawa as I had very limited time to spend in Puerto Maldonado and Inotawa had the best value, as well as the itinerary that was most suited to our needs. AIRPORT TRANSFER: supremely easy, the guide assigned to you will be waiting outside PEM airport with a sign holding your name and will accompany you all the way.... More

My husband, two teenage boys and I arrived at Inotowa as our first stop in Peru. I really didn't know what to expect and might have been a bit nervous if I had known beforehand that there are no hot showers and very simple accommodations. I'm so glad I didn't miss out on this incredible experience, which was definitely the... More

I signed up in Cusco for a 4 day/3 night trip with Inotawa Expeditions because the cost was modest. I wanted to see the jungle after reading about Manu National Park, but the prices to visit there were way out of my budget. I really didn't know what to expect when I arrived in Puerto Maldonado, but starting with the... More

I only got to spend 3 nights there this time (I stayed for 10 days in 2013) but had another enjoyable time photographing arthropods, plants and fungi. It was the rainy season (I was there between the 19th and 22nd of January) and I enjoyed listening to the frogs which were spawning in the numerous puddles and ponds. The rain... More

Inotawa Lodge is a fabulous lodge set 5 minutes from the Tambopata River. The lodge is rustic with small bungalows that include private baths (toilet, sink, and COLD shower). The lodge only has electricity from 6-9:30pm in the bar and common areas. A Hilton it is not, but if you want an authentic rain forest experience, this lodge is great.... More

We were very pleased we had chosen Inotawa for our Amazon adventure - 4 days in the rainforest. The lodge is basic but has everything covered. Our bungalow, which certainly gives more privacy than the partitioned dorms in the main building, had its own bathroom, albeit with just cold water and was candlelit at night. Power is available at the... More

Inotawa is a easy going lodge run by their owners and initiators. As a lodge in the rain forest region of Peru, it is built following traditional native architecture patterns. A big maloka has the lobby, individual or double rooms, the restaurant and bar. It is located outside of the city! You sail over 40 minutes from the Infierno harbour... More

The guide was excellent, the atmosphere of the lodge was relaxed and authentic. The visit to the clay lick cliff to see the parrots was amazing. The rooms were comfortable considering the heat. The noise of the forest at night was incredible.
