The lodge really does make a huge effort to remain natural and sustainable within its environment and is run mainly by the local community. I was not looking for air conditioning, etc. but for a place that is connected to its surroundings. I found it!
I ate well (lots of fresh fruit and veggies) and saw several different birds. I could hear the toucans, but they hid themselves very well. I did, however, get a good view of the scarlet macaws from a blind near a clay lick, where they come to eat and cleanse themselves. Magnificent! I had a good laugh watching the various monkey swing and tumble through the trees. You may be lucky and see lots of wildlife, but, depending on the time, your viewing may be limited. However, if you want to experience the jungle, free from tourist shows, etc, this is the place. Read ahead about the history of the area, from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado. It makes the flight from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado fascinating, If you have time, go overland.
I am almost never sick but did run into a minor snag while there. The staff was amazing and took good care of me.
