“Where is the wildlife?”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The physical facilities of this lodge are impressive. The rooms, open to the jungle, provide a peaceful setting to relax and/or sleep. The main lodge is spacious and the food was very good.

We saw a few capybaras along the river banks both going to and coming back from the lodge, and we saw a couple of cayman by flashlight on the way to the lodge after darkness set in. Some monkeys were in the trees when we visited the farm across the river. The few birds we saw were way up high or off in the distance making it difficult to appreciate. But where were the butterflies and insects?? Even the night walk into the jungle using flashlights turned up but on small tree frog! I realize there is no guarantee when looking for creatures, but I was really disappointed at the lack of excitement in this regard. Are some of the other lodges better choices in this regard? Not sure.

We spend 4days 3nights here at the end of our trip through Peru & to tell the truth we were actually dreading it...I thought heat, bugs & piranhas not for me why the heck did we sign up lol...but we actually loved the experience!! We were assigned to our guide Piedro who was as kiwis would put "awesome" really passionate about the Amazon & community. When we first arrived the heat was very humid so was quite hard trekking those steep steps to the lodge & doing the daily hikes so maybe if you really hate exercise beware lol...it rained our last few days & that made a real difference much nicer & we actually wore jackets as got quite cool...food was nice & after eating out in restaurants everyday for 5wks we enjoyed that the food here was like a home cooked meal...you sit with your guide & group for all meals lucky for us everybody was nice...seen some great things but my highlight was seeing the Charmain (medicine man) he had such peacefulness in his face that I will never forget...oh other thing beware very early morning rising normally between 4-5am depending on activities bit tiring but lovely arvo siestas & pretty early nights....good WIFI at certain times, showers hot, beds comfy overall a great experience for these town folks....cheers Brenda & Shane

The lodge really does make a huge effort to remain natural and sustainable within its environment and is run mainly by the local community. I was not looking for air conditioning, etc. but for a place that is connected to its surroundings. I found it!
I ate well (lots of fresh fruit and veggies) and saw several different birds. I could hear the toucans, but they hid themselves very well. I did, however, get a good view of the scarlet macaws from a blind near a clay lick, where they come to eat and cleanse themselves. Magnificent! I had a good laugh watching the various monkey swing and tumble through the trees. You may be lucky and see lots of wildlife, but, depending on the time, your viewing may be limited. However, if you want to experience the jungle, free from tourist shows, etc, this is the place. Read ahead about the history of the area, from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado. It makes the flight from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado fascinating, If you have time, go overland.

I am almost never sick but did run into a minor snag while there. The staff was amazing and took good care of me.

We had a great time in this eco-friendly lodge. The staff was very nice and helpful, the lodge was beautiful and we had some great bush walks during the night and day to see lots of different animals. The food was amazing! Every meal was freshly cooked and was different every time.

Room Tip: We had the last room of the row, far at the end so we had neighbors on only one site. This was great...

We had the pleasure during our 3 weeks trip in Peru also to visit Posada Amazonas. This is a very nice Lodge offering a lot of activities. There are also good opportunities to see many birds and animals of the djungel. Staff is very friendly. The guides are also very knowledgable and inform a lot of what is special for this part of the Amazonas. Everything very well organized.

We went to Posada Amazona in August and we were not expecting this place. This is a beautiful lodge, incredible staff, and excellent food. All the activities were well planned; our guides Ines and Jorge were very knowledgeable and so friendly. The rooms are very nice with a fully working bathroom. All rooms have 3 walls so you can enjoy the jungle and wake up to its sounds. If you’re in Peru, you must take a few days and come to this wonderful lodge.

We went to Posada Amazonas in July 2012. The trip was one of the best our family has ever made. My 13 year old daughter was kind of afraid of mosquitoes and other insects. They did not bother at all, we use repellent. We really enjoyed our stay. We saw plenty of animals and we had a lot of fun. There are many activities and excursions during the day and night included with your stay, but you also have time to rest. No TV or cell phone signal so you can enjoy nature. The Posada is very comfortable, you wake up with the sounds of the jungle, it is really soothing. The food was really good and the staff is very friendly, kind and professional. My nine-year old daugher was really happy, she even took a swim at the river. She caught a piranha when fishing at the lake (we sent it back to the water). We also saw giant otters at the lake. I recommend this trip very much.

Room Tip: All rooms are equal, one wall is missing so you can see and feel closer to the jungle. Beds have mos...
