Very nice lodge, offering exactly what I needed – the ultimate immersion with the rainforest. Very nice rooms, dining area, lobby, terrains…Spent super relaxing moments in the hammocks in the lobby space, looking and listening to the forest and reading – dreamy! And I believe the best experience was to fall asleep every day just next to the jungle, in my own, private mosquitiera, listening to the sounds – absolutely amazing. Also would like to recommend our guide, Rodolfo, very knowledgeable, with 10 years’ experience, easy going and very nice. As for the wildlife, we have seen quite plenty: all the kind of birds including macaws and parrots (the clay lick is great!), all kinds of frogs and bugs, huge ants (eechs), snake, tarantula and scorpion spider, the famous giant otters, tiny caiman, aguti, some monkeys as well is the huge ceiba trees – super!

We just returned from a 21 day trip to Equador and Peru, and it was one of our best ever. We have to thank David of Escaped to Latin America who helped us work out our itinerary and booked all our accommodations, guides and flights within S America, and it was about half the cost of a Tauck tour. Our travel was absolutely seamless, with a driver meeting us at each airport or bus station and someone always there to take us from hotel to the next departure site. The Amazon jungle was the last third of our trip, and we stayed at both Posada Amazonas as well as the Tambopata Research Center. Both lodges were similar, although Posada had in-room bathroom and shower, whereas TRC had shared facilities (which were actually quite fine, similar except shared with one row for men and one for women, and each separated from the others). I will say that one other difference was that the bed linens were softer at PA than at TRC where they were a bit scratchy. We felt well-cared for at both lodges with friendly staff, very clean accommodations (at TRC you have to take your shoes off at the reception area so as not to track dirt into the rest of the facility) and three meals a day which were simply prepared but tasty and nutritious. We loved the lunches on the river boat trips to and from lodges; rice and chicken beautifully wrapped in bijao leaves! The guides all have such keen eyes, spotting wildlife we would never have noticed. We were lucky to have Ruben to ourselves, and it was especially helpful when he brought a telescope on our expeditions to see a bird or monkey too far to see with either naked eye or regular binoculars, and he even took some photos for me through the telescope! I would definitely recommend Posada Amazonas, as well as TRC if you want to go deeper into the jungle. Andy anyone wanting to plan a superb trip to Peru or Equador should contact Escaped to Latin America.

Room Tip: The sleep quality was mostly due to the heat and humidity, unavoidable in the jungle. We chose to h...

We arrived at posada amazonas for the last 3 days of our trip to peru. We werent quite sure what to expect. The lodge is incredible. It is serene and quite. You are right in the jungle even inside your room. there are 3 walls and an open rail to the outdoors. The lodge has 30 rooms and no electricity in them. There is a private bathroom for each room. At night there are lanterns lit until 9pm and then you have candles and flashlights in your room as well as a bug net. In the lobby and dinning area there is electricity for a few hours each day to charge your camera and flashlight. The food was excellent and they were extremely helpful for me and a few others with dietary restrictions. The guides were great, very helpful, nice and had a ton of knowledge. The 3 day stay is great and I would have loved to stay one more day. I highly recommend this lodge for relaxtion and great sight seeing. We had a fantastic time.

Our stay at Posada Amazonas was an amazing opportunity to get a real taste of the Amazon Jungle. Sleeping in open rooms with the sounds of the jungle all around was a whole experience by itself, adding a knowledgable guide and good Peruvian food, we were happily surprised :)

We stayed at all three Rainforest Expeditions lodges during our recent trip. It was a great Amazon experience, with lots of wildlife, which is what we came for. We have been to some of the best ecolodges in the new world tropics, and this place compares well, with great attention to detail.

The oppressive heat was the only real negative of our trip, but that has faded with time, leaving only the good memories. If you want to see macaws, this is the place!

We arrived here quiet nervous after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. However we had the best time ever. We loved our stay here. The rooms sound a lot worse then what they actually are, the rooms were comfortable and was just right for the amazon. When we arrived we were amazed at how big the place was. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our guide was what made our stay so memorable. Willian and Innes were so helpful and made each trip into the amazon as exciting as the other. Highly recommend the night walk! We would recommend taking lots of insect repellent as it is the amazon and wear light clothing as it is very very hot. Meals here were nice and we enjoyed sampling the local foods. If your thinking of coming here dont think twice! It really is a fantastic place

Room Tip: Try not to get a room right at the end of the block as we they can get bats

My husband and I stayed at Posada Amazonas in October. We had been booked in Refugio Amazonas however much to our delight was sent to the closer location of its 'sister' resort. The resorts are identical almost except Posada is only 3/4 hour up river compared with Refugio being 3 hours and Refugio is child friendly with playgrounds etc apparently (so needless to say we were happy to not have small children running about at Posada but instead could enjoy some adult time).
Upon arrival at the airport we were greeted by very friendly staff who loaded us all onto a bus and transported us to the main headquarters where we sorted out what to take out of our larger luggage. If you don't have a suitable bag to take with you, they can lend you free of charge a canvas duffle bag which is quite generous in size and clean. Your stored luggage is kept in a locked room until your return and very safe.
We were given juice/ tea and coffee upon arrival there too. As our flight arrived early, we had to wait for the next flight to arrive before our trip into the jungle commenced. The time passed quickly as a tour guide took us around the place and showed us monkeys and birds at neighboring properties. We chatted to other waiting tourists also which was interesting to hear other people's travel experiences.
When everyone had arrived, we were loaded into a bus and taken about 3/4 hour drive to the port where we boarded our long boat and motored up to Posada. Leny was our guide and she made our experience amazing for the 4 days we were in the jungle! We were given a haliconua leaf filled with fried rice for lunch which was so yummy.
When we arrived at the Posada port, we hiked about 10 minutes to the resort which was gorgeous. We were give cold washers to refresh ourselves and icy cold juice where we had a briefing from Cynthia to allocate our rooms and tell us what we could expect.
We then went to our room which was fabulous...open wall to jungle (we saw numerous birds, lizards, and even monkeys from our room in the trees 5 meters from where we were sitting).
There is hot water for the showers, but I found a cold shower far more refreshing after hikes etc in 40 degree heat. Take long sleeve light weight clothes and enough to make 3-4 changes per day as you get very hot and wet from perspiration. There is a washing line and pegs in your room so just rinse out your clothes and hang them out...they'll dry over night if they are light weight.
The beds are really comfortable with a mosquito net and even though the rooms don't have electric fans, the nights cooled down enough to be comfortable for sleeping.
The rooms just have a curtain but most people do respect your privacy and valuables can be locked in the safe in the rooms.
There is power in the dining area between lunch and dinner times to recharge your cameras/ iPhones etc and wifi is available for a few hours each day. We used Viber to call our kids in Australia and it actually worked better than using it between cities in Australia.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks are provided. Food was fantastic and there was never a shortage whilst we were there. A bar is open during these times also (not breakfast), and you can either pay for each drink at the time or run up a tab and pay on your last night. The cocktails are amazing and very reasonably priced less than AU$5.
Activities are well planned with at least one early 4.30am start.....but believe me, it's truly worth it to see the birds, otters etc on the lake. We even caught a piranha!!!! :)
Try to make the effort to climb the 37 metre high observation tower, it is spectacular!
Gum boots are provided if you don't wish to wear your own shoes so bring socks to avoid blisters.
I cannot recommend Posada Amazonas highly enough......out of my month in SA, this was my absolute highlight....even above Machu Picchu!!!!
We saw a number of animals both on the river, lake and around the resort.
Tips are appreciated by the guides at the end of your stay. It's hard to know how much to give but we gave Leny AU$40 because she was fabulous to us and our group.....she was extremely grateful.
Also there is a tip box for the other staff which is appreciated as their wages are very low.
My stay at Posada Amazonas will always be an experience in my memory I will never forget! :)
