Booked ahead of time knowing they had a cancellation policy. Beware cancellation policy does not allow for refunds on travel vouchers! Bad luck if you cant travel there you lose your money!! Very unhappy customer.
Me and two friends stayed at the lodge for 3 nights. The staff was incredibly friendly, the food was great, and our tour guide Luis M. was amazing! We saw lots of monkeys, macaws, capybara, cayman, and many more animals and also learned about local plants. Would definitely recommend the lodge to anyone!
We had such an amazing time staying at Posada Amazonas. Everything was incredibly well organized. Rooms were gorgeous and food was delicious. Our guide Luis was a wizard, pointing out all kinds of plants and animals we never would have seen, and knew a ton about all of them. I also liked that they employ so many members of the indigenous community. We arrived on Wednesday and left on Saturday and felt like we saw a solid number of things during that time. If you have more time, I would maybe even consider going deeper into the rainforest to the Refugio location. Some things that it would be helpful to know before you go: - After picking you up at the airport, they stop at the lodge. They feed you and ask you to repack your things, to take out the non-essentials, which they lock up for you at the office. They give you a duffel bag and then you can also take your daypack. It was plenty of space for what I needed, but also I recommend making those decisions in advance, to make the repacking process easier and to make sure you don't forget anything. -Once you get there, they ask you to only use their shampoo, soap, and body wash in the shower, because it is more friendly to the environment. They were good quality products so this was not an issue, but if I had known this, I would have packed fewer toiletries/left some behind at the lodge. You might also consider what other products you take and whether they are safe for the environment. -The internet was better than I expected for being in the rainforest, but also did get disrupted by bad weather. I had planned as if there would be no internet at all, and that turned out not to be the case, though I was glad went it that I had not taken it for granted. -We went during rainy season and I think we got lucky. The rain wasn't really intense until our last day. After seeing the way it rained on our last day, and being told that sometimes it rains like that for a week, dry season is probably the safer bet. However, getting lucky like we did, we enjoyed a nice relaxing, uncrowded experience during the low season.…
One of the true highlights of my travels. The facilities and staff were wonderful without being over the top luxury (which I don’t care for). Our guide was from the rainforest village and very knowledgeable on the plants and wildlife of the area. He also freely talked about the culture and present day challenges. The food was wonderful and all services were approached sustainably. I would love to go back some day!
We enjoyed our trip to Peru so much!! We started with a few days at Posada Amazonas and cannot say enough good things. Our guide Christian was amazing with his knowledge of native plants and animals. Our accommodations were so unique and relaxing. The FOOD!! So delicious. Everyone was wonderful and accommodating. I would love to visit again.
