After flying in, their staff met us at the airport and took us to their office in Puerto Maldonado. There we repacked our things and took the small luggages with us, and left the big ones in the office. We had to wait for around 1 hour for tourists from the next flight. During the wait the staff took us for a quick walk in the market nearby and it's a good chance to buy some brazillian nuts. After that we were taken to the dock and took a 1.5-hour boat trip to the lodge. The lodge is beautiful and there are a few parrots and many different plants. During the tours you're almost guaranteed to see monkeys (on the monkey island) and caimans (on the river bank during the night tour on the first day and the lost lake on the second day), and a lot of birds. For other animals, it depends on your luck. We saw an anaconda. The river boat cruise is a nice experience. Our guide was good and knowledgable.
There is purified drinking water provided in the canteen during some specific hours of a day. Fill up your bottles during these timeslots. Similarly, electricity is only provided during certain time of the day. Food in canteen was good. Unlimitied supply of banana.
There is no hot water for shower...
