My boyfriend and I stayed for a 4 day 3 night trek, and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience. It fulfilled all of my desires for a jungle expedition (great food, informative guide, and multiple animal sightings). But Inotawa provided more than those three basic expectations. What separates this place from other lodges (based off of other's reviews) is the more intimate atmosphere. Not coming during tourist season was a definite boon. The majority of our outings were 1 on 1 with the guide, allowing us to see more animals due to the lack of group noise. The lodge itself was charming and relaxing, without all the bells and whistles that other lodges might offer in an effort to entertain many guests at once. Instead of TVs or a game room, Inotawa offered hammocks, an open porch, and a tranquil atmosphere, which was exactly what we wanted after the 16 hour bus ride to get to Puerto Maldonado. Lastly, Inotawa was cheaper than the other lodges. Though I'm not sure why, I couldn't be more appreciative. Low prices kept the trip accessible and allowed us to better tip our guide. The low prices in addition to the personal and serene atmosphere left us wanting for nothing. Inotawa should definitely be taken into consideration if you're seeking a jungle experience.
