        Reasonable cost for three days/two nightss to learn about the Amazon jungle
        We started off with a jungle walk, learning about the local fruits and trees which was very good. All together we saw four species of monkeys, capybara, brown agouti, caiman, and quite a few bird species, including toucans, but no jaguar or sloths. Many hairy tarantulars! The food was OK and they catered to vegetarians. The accommodation was basic but we had electricity due to solar panels, and cold showers which was a big relief due to the hot and humid temps. Day 2 the trip to Sandoval lake was very good. We could have had an activity between lunch on the second day and the evening walk at 6.20pm. Day 3 the canopy walk was very good. Our guide, Ronald, was very knowledgeable about the biology of the different animals, plants, and trees, and passionate about the conservation issues of the area.

        Well planned and enjoyable
        We really enjoyed this tour, especially since our guide, Tito, was so good. The tours were good, though I wish we saw more on the afternoon hike in the jungle. The salt lick is not much to see since it is so far away. The meals were good. Make sure you have purified water. Accommodations were good too, though it would be good to have hooks and a flat surface in the washroom. I had to put my clean clothes on the floor before having a shower. And there were 3 of us, so no place in the washroom for personal items. A good camera is recommended!

        Amazing wildlife and authentic jungle experience.
        We had a great experience with lots of activities and time for relaxing. Ronald, our guide, had an almost supernatural ability to spot wildlife, day and night and had great knowledge of everything. The heat was oppressive at times, so think about going earlier in the season (Sept and Oct are likely the hottest months), or plan to spend a lot of time near the river where it is breezy (There's a weak cell signal near the river as well when Wifi doesn't work).

        Great jungle experience
        This was a great experience, the lodges were with everything you need in a good price to quality ratio. The garden was beautiful and had a nice swimming pool to chill after activities. Vegetarian food options were creative and healthy. Our guide Fernando gave us a lot of intormation about the jungle and its plants and animals. Fernando was very interested to create a good experience for our group. We saw many animals and were amazed by the nature. The only downside would be the weak wifi, but maybe the jungle is a good place to disconnect:) Very much recommend. Emilija and Jonas

        Theft ruined an otherwise great experience
        The tour guide, John Borris, was excellent, very knowledgable and friendly. He made the experience very interactive and educational, as well as catering the experience to our needs. The lodge had a family employed to cook, clean, etc. They speak no English but if you can speak Spanish, they are very kind and supportive people. All good and drinks were provided and excellent standard, with many local dishes served. Unfortunately, the negative review stems from the fact that one of our guests item of clothing was stolen from our suitcase whilst we were away. It is normal to leave bags at the office whilst only taking necessary items on the excursion, we did this. The item stolen was a very expensive brown poncho, which was 100% in the suitcase at the time of leaving, and not there upon returning. The guest in question is very upset. The staff seemed not to know where it went, so I do not believe this occurs frequently, but it did with us. Be warned about leaving your special possessions with Pelota :)

        Surviving the Jungle!
        We did this tour in August 2023 (the dry season) and saw an incredible array of animals: caymans, otters, a capybara, tarantulas, parrots of all kinds, monkeys…the list goes on! The activities planned for this trip were great: starting with a day walk learning about the jungle and how to survive if we ever got lost, fishing & kayaking on the river, a nighttime cayman boat ride, visiting a monkey island, a night walk to see tarantulas, a canopy walk with zip line and a beautiful canoe ride around Lake Sandoval. Whilst the tour itself was brilliant, it is important to flag how intense the heat, humidity and mosquitoes were. We found it incredibly challenging given there was no relief and at times, it was too much. Having said that, Amazonica Lodge was brilliant with a lovely swimming pool, good food and small smoke pits throughout the resort to support in keeping the bugs at bay. It is worth noting that the huts have no fans due to the limited electrical supply to the resort. Our guide, Ronald, was friendly, knowledgable and great fun. Having lived in the jungle until he was 16, he also had a number of incredible stories to share. Thank you Ronald! This was definitely an experience, with many highs and challenges, that we won’t forget. One thing that will stay in our memories for a long time is how Ronald effortlessly caught a cayman with his bare hands and then brought it onto the boat to show us up close. Ronald’s respect for nature was incredible to see and we came away with some of that same appreciation.

        We had an amazing time! Would defo recommend this trip. Fernando was amazing and knew so much. His English is amazing and he even managed to catch a caiman so we could get a closer look!!! The lodge was lovely and had gorgeous views of the river. Really well organised by the lodge, Fernando and the office.

        Jungle adventure
        Wonderful wildlife and pristine jungle adventure with aras, monkeys, caimans, and big tarantulas. Beds were comfy and the kitchen created some special vegan menu, super tasty! Great garden and pool with some canopy and zip line in the back. Highly recommend Marcos as a guide!

        Incredible tour, staff, lodge and food
        We had a fantastic time on the 4D/3N jungle Adventure 03 tour. Seriously well worth the price. Our guide Fernando was very knowledgeable about all the plants, animals, indigenous people and general questions we had about Peru. My partner and I agree that out of all the people we have met in Peru, he’ll be the one that we remember most often, a really nice man. We saw loads of monkeys and birds as well as many other animals each day, like black, white and dwarf caimans, as well as capybara and other animals too! Fernando was incredible at spotting animals and was quick to pick up tarantulas on our hikes! The lodge was also nicer than we expected and the rest of the staff were very friendly and it was such a great environnement. The resort had fruit trees like starfruit and others we hadn’t ever seen before and Fernando took us around in our spare time to pick fruit and try them! The food was also really great and different each day. I’m Pescatarian and they had great replacements for me! They would add an omelette, avocado, fried fish, extra potato and beans or other foods that were delicious. The pool was cleaned often and a great relief on the very hot/humid days. Our room was also cleaned very well by housekeeping. They did a great job. There were lots of bugs on most of our tours so definitely bring bug spray/ a bug jacket and long pants/shirts made of light material. It is hot and buggy. But the area around the lodge was much better for bugs because there were many bug repellent smokings around, I was even comfortable walking around in shorts when I needed to get to the main dining lodge or wear a bikini in the pool. Overall, I highly recommend this place. This will be one of our Peru highlights.

        Must go if you ever thought about going to the jungle
        First day we went for a short hike in jungle near the lodge. Be sure to have repellent, because there is a mega lot of mosquitoes. Later we went to monkey island, but couldn’t find any monkeys, they are used to humans as there was a rehabilitation project and after project they were transported to this island so they are not afraid, hypothesis is that they were already filled their bellies with food and weren’t interested in having more of it. So it was a little disappointment. So that why I am giving 4/5, everything is alright about agency, it just like weather, you can’t control it. And in rainy season there is more food so better chance to see monkey up to close, maybe even hold them in hands or something, is in dry season. In the evening when it got dark we went on a search of white caiman crocodiles, they become active at night. We found only one, but guide said that is quite hard to find them, so it is fine. But anyway, we saw only the head, because the river has more water in rainy season, in dry season you could see whole body. The second day early in the morning, at 5am we left for Sandoval Lake, Tampobata national reserve, so it was really great, we saw fire, brown and yellow capuccino monkeys, macaws, an animal similar to capybara, from the same family, it looks alike, but it’s just smaller, tarantulas, lizards, we saw caiman too and saw whole body, a lot of different species of birds, slots. And you get to paddle with kayak around the lake, having breakfast in other side of the lake, you come back to port and then to the lodge, lunch and after some free time, back to Puerto Maldonando. About food. It was really delicious, you get even a dessert. From my experience, I recommend doing short hike + monkey island + white caimans at night and Sandoval lake the second day on dry season and on rainy season I think it is better to do canopy bridges + Sandoval lake for 2 days. Or you could stay one more day to see a native family daily life. Guide was really good, told a lot about forest, animals and stuff, I even noticed that our guide told us more stuff than other guides of other agencies as I overheard them. I strongly recommend this experience, but came earlier to adapt to high temperature if you are going on rainy season. After I got back to Puerto Maldonado they let me drop my backpack at their office as I waited for the bus, had a meal and they took me for free to bus station

        Great jungle experience
        I went on a 4d/3n trip including one night at Hacienda Tambopata and two nights at Monte Amazónico Lodge. I saw an amazing amount of wildlife the first place and also had a gray trip to Sandoval lake, lots of birds, turtles, piranhas and black caymans. Both places were simple but were nice places in beautiful settings and had all the necessary facilities. Only the food could have been better. Be aware they Monte Amazónica Lodge/Carlos Expeditions (same owner) offers many different trip and check exactly what is included in your trip

        Fantastic experience!
        Monte Amazonico is a fantastic resort located right on the edge of the Madre de Dios river. There are lots of activities to get involved with during the tours, and a pool and cafeteria with snooker and foosball to use during any down time. The food provided was really good, and the guides, particularly Paul, are brilliant. We were also the first to arrive for excursions, meaning places weren’t packed with other tourists. Some of the highlights of the tour, for us, was the visit to Monkey Island, kayaking, and ziplining. However, in our experience, although we took the 4 night/5 day tour as we wanted to do kayaking and ziplining, most people on the 3 night/4 day tour also did these activities. For that reason, if you’re looking to lots of things during your visit to Peru, it might be worth doing the shorter tour but getting a late flight out if possible, so that you have time for all activities but don’t need to stay the extra night! Having said that, even just hanging around the resort and watching the sun set is a great way to spend an evening!

        Very good experience!
        Every day just kept getting better and better. The prices at the lodge were surprisingly decent. Good communication, lovely visits around the jungle and up and down the stream. The one downside I suppose would be the fact there was no hot water. Good local food with varied menus daily.

      It must have been 100F with 100% humidity furing our January trip. Even though it was furing the tsiny seasom, we were blessed with 3 fully sunny days. The tour leaders were very knowledgeable and friendly and the staff was very efficient. We only wished they turned on the power in the morning when we have to be ready to go by 4:30a. And wished there was a fan in our cabins to circulate the air. Still, a very memorable experience.
