We stayed here for 3 nights during a 2 week trip to Peru and we had a wonderful time. From the minute you arrive in Puerto Maldonado, Inkaterra staff takes care of everything. We drove from the airport to a butterfly house where we were met with cool towels and a glass of delicious starfruit juice. Then we were transferred to the dock where we met our boat and went to the Hacienda Concepcion.
The property is beautiful and very well maintained. Our cabana was so charming and well-appointed. At times it was hard to believe we were in the jungle because it felt so luxurious. The food at the lodge was delicious. There were lots of varieties of fresh fruits/veggies, quiches, pastas, salads, quinoa, lentils, chicken, beef, and fish. The desserts are great and are made with brazil nuts and chocolate grown on-site. We ate very well during our stay.
We loved all of our excursions and we cannot speak highly enough about our guide James. We did the botanical walk, the nighttime wildlife boat ride, the canopy tour, the Lake Sandoval hike, and the brazil nut walk. We were able to see so much wildlife: tamarinds, red howler monkeys, white capuchin monkeys, hoatzins, black caiman, vultures, macaws, agoutis, bats, turtles, and even a sloth. James also showed us many medicinal and edible plants. Our favorite excursion was the hike to Lake Sandoval. Even though it took a long time and was mostly through deep mud due to a heavy rain the night before, it was worth it. Watching the sunset over the trees while in the canoe on Lake Sandoval is one of my favorite memories from this trip.
We met some great people during our stay. It was so nice to be without a phone, internet, laptop, or TV for 4 days. You can just relax and explore the jungle. I can't wait to go back.
