“Posada Amazonas”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We visited during the wet season.
Great to see the jungle and the fluctuations in the environment depending on the amount of rain over the previous day or so.
Great knowledgeable guides.
Excellent food and accommodation.
Would highly recommend

The lodge was wonderful and very clean and yet rustic. The staff was very attentive and helped with every request. If you want a jungle experience this was great. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and considerate. A highly recommended place!

A coworker had highly recommended the tour, so I booked a 4D/3N Soft Adventure tour at Posada Amazonas.

Customer Service: Superb
They respond very quickly to emails! The staff at the lodge were very respectful and friendly and it really made it a pleasant experience. They brought us cold fresh fruit juice and some num nums after our hikes. So so nice.

The Lodge: Superb
If you don't like open spaces and prefer the privacy of walls, this isn't the place for you. But honestly, I took a look at all the photos and knew what I was getting into - the lodge is by far one of the major things that convinced me to book a stay here. I love the open air in the room, the fact that you can see monkey swinging outside your room is awesome. The dining area, meeting room, the hammocks suspended from the ceiling. I love the shower! It really only takes a few seconds to get hot water too. I found it very easy to fall asleep with the hum of the rainforest noise. I still dream about that place.

The Tour: Awesome
Yes it's humid and there are plenty of insects and mosquitos - it's the rainforest damnit! There aren't too many insects in the lodge, but you MUST use insect spray before you set out on a hike. But hey I knew that coming in, so no surprises. I got so caught up looking at everything around me that I forgot it was humid, I forgot that there were insects, and I forgot that there was sweat dripping down my back. Our guide William is awesome. He even brought us on a tour of a fruit farm! Btw they give you boots to hike through the mud so no worries!

Bottom line: I would come here again.

While I would like to give a fully detailed review of our experience, I feel that doing so would diminish the experience for the next visitor. The unexpected was a big part of our enjoyment. The facility is remote, basic, and rustic but very well maintained and well integrated into the surroundings. Both the food and the staff including guides were excellent. We enjoyed many different activities and many, many different animals, birds, and insects. Of the activities, walks in the rain, the canopy tower, boat rides on the Tambopata, night walks, and visiting a family on a community farm were highlights.

While we would like to enthusiastically recommend this lodge, it may not be for everyone. Laying under a mosquito net on a particularly hot and humid night with no A/C, no electricity, no real hot water, no wall between you and the jungle, and having to use a flashlight to avoid stepping on anything on the way to the bathroom, just may have you wondering how you let yourself get into this position. Waking up in the morning to the amazing sounds of the monkeys, birds, and who knows what else in the jungle reminds you of why it was worth it. We loved this place and this experience.

Posada Amazonas is a convenient jungle ecolodge, where you can have exposure to the diverse rainforest without having to become Tarzan. We went during rainy season, so were not surprised to find that some of the itinerary would be interrupted by rains, and some fairly torrential rain indeed. Still, there is something very authentic about laying under the mosquito nets in the partially open accommodations listening to the showers filling the jungle. We gladly opted for a Superior Room, which has slightly nicer appointments than the standard rooms. It also has outlets and electric lighting, although only operational during the hours when electricity is available on the premises. It was nice to be able to charge equipment without having to go to the common areas. Also, the Superior Rooms are along a separate deck, so it was nice to be separated from the rest of the guests for some added privacy. We even had the chance to enjoy watching tamarind monkeys play in the trees right outside our room one afternoon.
During our 4 day itinerary, almost 2 days were used for transit. Although you are always on-the-go, the staff is organized enough to get everyone and all belongings to the next destination. The other two days involved a canopy tower, hikes in muddy terrain due to the rain, a leisurely boat ride on the lake to view wildlife (many birds, monkeys, piranha), a brief float by the macaw clay lick, and a trip to the medicinal botanical garden. It was best to not expect too much given that there can be few animal sightings in rainy season, but we were happy to see plenty of wildlife large and small going about their normal life in the jungle. We were glad we brought a good quality zoom lens, to be sure to capture all of the nature moments. The guides were from the local community and seemed pretty knowledgeable about the jungle.
Food is served "buffet style," but there really is not much provided. It is probably best for everyone to take a healthy serving without being wasteful. It is a good lesson in moderation. Actually, three meals a day is certainly adequate. The food itself is fairly good, although I may have had issue with some of the raw vegetables and eventually stopped eating anything raw. I also decided to filter the drinking water (although it is already filtered) based on some previous reviews. The bar was out of ice was evening, so no cocktails. However, the pisco sours the following evening were worth the wait.
Although the itinerary is not strenuous by any means, we were glad to have brought some basic essentials for outdoor enjoyment: Bug spray - DEET high concentration is best as the mosquitos are plentiful, plastic ponchos, head lamps, rain hats, convertible pants, long-sleeved breathable shirts.
We did wish that there were more trails accessible for hiking, and that there was a chance to more variety in the activities. We ended up skipping some of the activities, however, due to the rain. Clothes do get damp and dirty, so bring extra clothes, be prepared to deal with dampness and manage your belongings appropriately.

Lodge was very comfortable and a unique accommodation experience (first time in the Amazon). Guide was excellent taking us on an extra evening trek, McCaw's were absolutely stunning and b-to be able to get so close, wow!! Food was very good, room simple but very nice and clean. Fishing for perana was awesome, the river otters were a bonus and so close to us. Great 3 day trip, would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something a little off the beaten path.
