This was the highlight of our trip. Rustic but comfortable. Food was great, activities were better and out guide Victor was the best! The only minor negative was that they forgot about my food allergies twice and therefore had to scramble to make a new dinner for me. Resulting in mine being less exciting than everyone else's but still good.

After the long, enjoyable boat ride from Puerto Maldonado, we checked in and relaxed on the deck overlooking the river. This ecolodge is self-sustaining with respect to water and power. You can charge your phone/camera for a couple hours each afternoon at the outlets in the bar. Of course, there is no WIFI or cell service, but most people who... More

Our family of five -- parents and three teenage daughters -- did the 4-day/3-night package (although it is really more like a 2.5-day/3-night because day 1 and 4 are pretty much just travel) at WTL last week and had an absolute blast! The lodge is incredibly remote and a bit rustic, but that makes for an amazing getaway. You arrive... More

Your definitely up in the jungle when you stay here! So don't expect hot water or lots of electricity. The staff does a great job of balancing free time with planned activities. Lots of cool things to see and we met lots of great people. I'm Celiac and my husband is dairy free. The chefs and staff were great and... More

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
