Peruvian Amazon

Rating: Mid-range    

Posada Amazonas overview

Posada Amazonas is a 30 bedroom lodge located in the territory of the Ese'eja Native Community of Infierno, directly adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve. The lodge is owned jointly by the Ese'eja community and a Peruvian ecotourism company. Thanks to its accessibility, excellent wildlife observation opportunities and rustic but comfortable accommodations, this is ideal for a first trip to the Amazon rainforest.

Bedrooms are equipped with mosquito nets, bedside tables and hammocks or lounge chairs on your private veranda. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with hot water showers and flush toilets. Lighting is provided by lamps in classic rooms, while superior and premium rooms are equipped with electric lighting till 10pm each night, plus internet access and battery charging points. Premuim rooms also have minibars and ceiling fans.

The large bar and dining room seats up to 80 people. Buffet meals combine international, Peruvian and local cuisine. Tea, coffee and drinking water are available at all times and fresh fruit juices are served at meal times, and there's a convivial bar. The lodge has a wellness centre where you can enjoy massages and aromatherapy.   

During a stay at Posada Amazonas there is a mix of activities available including rainforest hikes, ethnobotanical walks, night walks and talks, and a farm visit. Canopy access is easy with a 30 metre scaffolding tower just a 20-minute walk from the lodge where you may see toucans, parrots and macaws. There is also a parrot clay lick a short walk from the lodge, where it is possible to see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on clear mornings to ingest the clay. A family of giant otters can often be seen on a nearby oxbow lake, as well as other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers.
