I gave this 5 stars assuming that you know going in that this is a "roughing it" type place. You are a 3 hour boat ride from civilization, no hot water, electricity 2 hours a day to charge camera batteries, etc. However, you eat very well, sleep under mosquito nets and do some very cool jungle activities, such as night...

Went into staying in at the Wasai Tambopata lodge a little blind, and not knowing what to expect. We had a fantastic stay! Our Guide was Jenny and she was great, and we were able to really experience the Amazon, I would 100% recommend staying here!

Great trip along the river before you arrive at your very basic cabin. Be warned there is no hot water and at times the water doesn't work at all. The rooms were clean for the small amount of time you spend in them (under the mosquito net). Loved the medicinal plants available in the grounds with a wonderful tour included.... More

Loved the lodge and the cabana. The food was good. Wish I could have gotten coffee earlier. The people, Sonya inparticular, fantastic!! The jungle walks were amazing and the clay lick was beyond what I expected. Life on the river is intriguing and rewarding. I would go back here and request Sonya as a guide.

I went to the Wasai Tambopata Lodge for the 4D/3N "Adventure Tour." While I had an enjoyable time and wouldn't consider the four days a waste, I wouldn't go back. It's a very relaxed place, and the pace of the activities reminded me of a beach vacation, but without the beach - lots of relaxing and light activities. This isn't... More

We really enjoyed our visit. Guillermo and the rest of the staff were wonderful. I could see how there could be too much down time but Guillermo did a few extra adventures with us. We also came from a Machu Pichu trek so a break would have been nice. All adventures were optional so some of us passed occasionally. We... More

I took a 4 day and 3 nights tour with Wasai and it was one of the best experience in my life! I loved the rainforest. The macaws, the river, the monkeys, the sounds, the night walks, everything. This eco lodge has a great location as it is far away from human presence, therefore you can see lots of wildlife!... More

This place was poor value for us. Hardly any activities means you have a lot of down-time. It's not an ideal place to just chill out or relax, as you end up spending the whole time waging war against the various bugs trying to eat you. All in all we felt that the website misrepresented how much there was to... More

WE did a 4n4d trek to this place. It was truly surreal to be so deep in the amazon. We enjoyed the staff members who treated us like family. Did not enjoy the lack of things to do. Not good value for money at all. Zipline / adventure centre is a joke, be prepared to be bored after 20 minutes... More

After our enjoyable stay the Wasai Lodge in Puerto Maldonado, we chose the 4d/3n tour at their Tambopata rainforest lodge. The staff was generally unattentive and did not go out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. Upon arrival we were not greeted with complimentary drinks or a tour of the property (which is apparently customary). The... More
