I visited this lodge in 2013, so I can't say if it has changed. But I just now received notifications for inquiries from 2913!!! What? That's a bad on Trip Advisor. But YES! Sending money via western union or Paypal over wasai.com, even without a confirmation is legit!!! I was a little apprehensive when I sent them several hundred dollars... More

My wife and I did a 5 day - 4 night stay at the Tambopata Lodge. We did the longer itinerary in hopes of seeing a leopard (no luck) and other wild life. I have no complaints about the lodge or our guide, but if I was to do it over again I might suggest the 3 day 2 night... More

they had extremely poor communication through the whole process of reserving and booking. We were aware that a local strike had occurred and was "resolved" only days before we wired them the money for our stay. We wanted assurances that we'd be refunded should the strike start again - but they never sent them, clearly this was a sign of... More

We were supposed to spend four days in the rainforest, with two nights at Wasai Tambopata Lodge. Unfortunately, the city was on strike the day we arrived and the access road to the harbor was blocked off. Along with many other groups (none of which informed their customers of the strike), we waited for hours at the airport until the... More

This is definitely a once in a lifetime experience but you do need tovbr prepared for a bit of rough living ecen tho the bungalows are really comfortable and the surroundings are just amazing. There is no electricity no Internet and no hot water. I will say that based on their website we had different expectations so read carefully and... More

Okay, so let's talk about what it is like - you take a tough van ride to a boat and when you show up at the lodge you realize that the next few days will be tough but magical. I was so impressed with our guide Ivan and the boat driver Caesar - I cannot emphasize, they were seriously amazing... More

The tour people took my request and turned it into 2 nights in the jungle at an “eco-lodge” to be reached by getting up at 4am, flying to Maldonado, bouncing along a hour ride on our personal boat resembling the “African Queen”. We arrived at the docking point only to be faced by what my daughter called the “Perilous Mud... More

It is an Eco Lodge, thats mean that you wont have hot water (if you are use to), they use solar panels and by night its incredible. The bungalows are really nice, all what you need to be in the jungle and each bed has a mosquito net so my nights were free of mosquitos! it very rural (no electricity... More

Nothing to say but positive things about this place. Comfortable accommodations (for the middle of the amazon), GREAT food, and a wonderful staff. We had the up most confidence in our guide, Victor, to take us far outside of our comfort zone and into the wild. We were thoroughly entertained, with just enough relaxation time to reboot. We saw amazing... More
