“unique and fun experience”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

My husband and I had a great experience at Posada Amazonas. We didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised when we got on the boat and got our snack and drink. The lodge is open air with no power and that's the fun of it! The hot showers at the end of the day were new and I think probably greatly improved the experience since I was hot and covered with bugspray at the end of each day. The food was great! They accomodated my vegetarianism wonderfully. You sit with the same people and do your excursions as a group. Luckily we had a great group although everyone was different ages and from different continents! Again part of the fun. The guides were beyond great. Their knowledge level was definately adequate for the nature-lover. I would recommend this trip to anyone who likes something a little different as a part of a trip. We were there for only 2 nights which was a nice taste of the amazon basin.

We toured the Amazon Jungle in July and had a wonderful experience staying at Posada Amazonas Eco Lodge. We were picked up at the Puerto Maldonado Airport and taken by river boat to our lodge. Everything about the Posada Amazonas Lodge was unique. In the lobby were inviting hammocks which we enjoyed while listening to an afternoon rain shower. The lodge rooms had 3 walls with the 4th wall completely open to the jungle. That was exciting at night listening to the monkeys just outside our room. We slept under the provided mosquito nets and our only light at night were candles and kerosine lamps We were well taken care of by the kind staff and guides. The lodge was built and run by the local people who live in the Infierno Community and all profits help support the people who live there. The Amazon is a bird paradise where we saw gorgeous macaws and parrots. Two great viewing places are a 120 foot tall tower and "blind" built for birdwatching. Our guide took us on a night walking tour : we spotted army ants, poisonous frogs, tarantula . During the day we fished for pirana and watched giant otters play in the river. We visited a shaman who showed us medicinal plants of every variety. A local plantation grew wonderful fruits.
The food of the lodge was delicious and served buffet style. We ate family style with other lodgers from all over the world. This was a great add on trip to our 4 day hike to Machu Picchu.
A great hands on and physically challenging vacation for myself and 2 teenagers.

We stayed here as part of our recent trip to Peru and had an amazing stay. This is not luxury accomodations in the rainforest, but I really feel it shouldn't be. The lodge is very nice with showers, toliets, big beds with mosquito netting, but there is not power and the lodge is open air so you can hear your neighbor snoring. If you know this is what you're signing up for this will be an amazing experience, if like some in our tour group you're expecting an easy stay with paved paths, this is not for you. There are hours a day of hiking through the jungle seeing amazing animals and birds, and then ending your days reading by candle light under mosquito netting. It's incredible, and an experience I will not forget, but probably not for everyone.

Remote enough to give an insight into rainforest life, yet reachable within comfort. A 1hr flight from Lima followed by a 3hr trip on a boat. As soon as you come off the plane you’re unmistakably breathing in the heavy rainforest air and the hot sun breathes down on you. Beware, in the winter season the days remain warm, however, the nights get very chilly (you will need warm clothing or at least a good coat!). We had breathtaking views of the river shrouded into mist and of emerald lagoons. Our guide also took us up a 35mt viewing tower from where we gazed over the endless amazon basin while macaws, tucans and all sorts of exotic birds flew in the trees around us.

In this lost paradise the Posada lodge is neatly set into the forest offers a comfortable refuge while living in harmony with nature. At given times the generator provided us with electricity to charge our cameras and it was also great to be able to enjoy a warm shower after a long day’s walk.

The food was always plentiful, varied and delicious. A combination of local ingredients and Peruvian flavors. Even on the boat ride we had a delicious rice wrapped in palm leaves!

The adults, but especially the children, loved to see all the animals in their real habitat. We saw white caimans and their offspring, Capybaras (world’s largest rodent), river turtles, several species of monkeys, birds (including bats in our room!), Agutis (a large, nut eating rodent), butterflies and lots of insects.

The whole experience was made even more complete thanks to the knowledge bestowed on us by our guide Paula! Paula, a well educated and trained eco-guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. It is the guides like her who make Rainforest Expedition so unique. Each group (in our case just our family) is picked up at the airport by a guide who joins the groups for all meals and tours until the drop off at the airport at the end of the stay. In this way we could roam at our own pace and make this a great learning adeventure for the whole family!

Room Tip: All rooms are equally well located and equipped.

My boyfriend and I had been previously in Cusco, which is always nice and "mystical"! But then being in the middle of the jungle with the crew of Posada Amazonas was just AMAZING. From the moment they pick us up, then going on the boat to the lodge area and all the adventures that came after. Even the food was great! We also had good times with the rest of the people in the tour coming from everywhere in the world. Definitely enjoyed it and I am happy to recommend it.

We visited Posada Amazonas with a small group Intrepid Tour. What a grand finish to a 21 day trip to Peru! The concept of Rainforest working with the local community is a real plus. I hope the local community maintains its relationship with the Rainforest organization. I believe the venture will be more successful that way. It was amazing to see how dense the forest is. Loved waking to the sound of the howler monkeys staking out their turf. The guide we had was excellent. The room and shower facility were good. LOVED having the whole side of the room open to the jungle. The food was what we expected, simple but good. The fishing for piranha was fun. They got the bait more than 90% of the time. Caught several very small ones (4 to 5 inches) and were shown just how razor sharp their teeth were by our guide. We felt the style of the lodge fit in very well with the surroundings.

We took 30 students traveling throughout Peru In April of 2012. Posada Amazonas was an excellent place to end an already perfect trip. The guides were fantastic, the accommodations were very comfortable and the openness/immersion of the huts into the jungle was a perfect experience. The students really enjoyed all of the guides. On top of their depth of knowledge, they provided great personal touches and improvisational humour. The mud soccer game on the banks of the amazon and post-game swim in the river was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
Thank you Posada Amazonas!
