Sandoval Lake Lodge: Located deep in Peru's Tambopata National Reserve, our Sandoval Lake lodge overlooks sparkling, palm-rimmed Sandoval Lake, the most beautiful and wildlife-rich of all lakes in Tambopata-Madidi. This privileged location gives you exclusive access to the lake in the early morning and late afternoon, the choice hours for wildlife viewing and photography. No other lodge in Tambopata-Madidi is on the banks of a protected oxbow lake. Our short Sandoval Lake Lodge program includes two nights of fully-screened accommodation in 25 double-occupancy rooms complete with en suite facilities with hot-water showers, electricity (*), fans, meals, airport transfers in Puerto Maldonado, naturalist guides, lake excursions by day in search of Giant Otters, monkeys, and macaws, forest excursions, night excursions in search of caimans, and evening slide shows. Our lodge specializes in small groups and individualized attention in our overriding quest to conserve the lake and surrounding rainforest. Sandoval Lake Lodge is built out of ecologically-correct driftwood mahogany and is owned jointly by a nonprofit conservation group and five families of indigenous Brazil nut collectors. (*) Three times per day: from 5:00 to 6:00 am, from noon to 4:00 pm and from 17:30 to 22:30 pm.

We came here on a 3D2N tour (Inkanatura) and enjoyed pretty much every second of our time. The (very) early morning and twilight trips were great - and we saw and snapped a wide variety of animals. The tarantula nesting not far from our room ... the caimans in the lake ... The

If a warm shower is important to you, then this place isn't for you because the shower runs alternately cool & scalding hot, no matter how you play with the handles. Don't expect luxury in the jungle. But the food is good, the staff friendly, & the quiet seclusion is welcome.

The Sandoval Lake Lodge is a 5 star accommodation for being located in a remote section of the Amazon Rainforest. Be prepared for quite a long trek through mud to get there, but don't worry they provide rain boots for you to wear and they have porters who carry your bags. The

Truly enjoyed our Sandoval adventure. NOT 5-star accommodations - but, really, you"re in the Amazon jungle! You went for adventure, to see animals, to experience the wild natural environment. Certainly comfortable, clean, good food -- and pleasant service. LOVED the capybara

You definitely have to work to get to this hotel. It's a "jungle lodge." So when I gave it five stars, you have to understand that it's 5 star for being in the middle of the jungle. Sandoval Lake is a gorgeous oxbow lake. You get to it by taking a motorized boat from Puerto
