Posada Amazonas Tambopata Reviews

Amazing room, fun stay! Jun 03, 2013
We stayed at Posada Amazonas doing the 4d/3n soft adventure tour which incorporated climbing the canopy tower, canopy climbing via harness, hiking, and ethobotanical tour, boating on the lake and fishing for piranhas. My daughter also went kayaking one afternoon, I chose to relax. The activities are well handled and thought out and we had a lot of fun on them. Safety was always a priority. Our guide throughout our stay was a bit reserved but very sweet. Another one of our guides for the canopy climbing was fun. Our group consisted of 6 of us and I made a couple of very good friends out of it. :)

The food was decent, I'd only say the occasional dish was really good, but the setting also made for quite enjoyable meal times, set in a covered platform open to the elements and the sounds of the jungle, lit wonderfully in the evening. Meals were served in a buffet style.

Our room was wonderful and magical. There is no true door to the room, only a curtain, but there is a small safe to lock valuables up in. The rooms are made of bamboo, with wood platform floors, and only 3 walls. This left one wall totally open to the elements and the jungle which made for an amazing experience. Our room had 2 comfy beds with good mosquito netting and lots of awesome pillows, lots of shelf space for our luggage, a hammock and a private bathroom with shower. There is a clothes line in front of the open side of the room, however the humidity is soooo high, nothing ever dries.. for that matter, anything that once was dry is never dry again while you are there. There are no plugins in the room, nor is there any lighting outside of oil lamps that get lit at night, so having a flashlight or headlamp is an absolute must.

As for the rest of the resort, there are plenty of sitting areas to relax, including a spot with hammocks. There's a souvenir shop, the restaurant of course. At the main sitting area and the restaurant there is plugins to charge up your iphones, camera batteries, etc, however the times the power is on is VERY limited.

The resort does supply rubber boots for everyone for use as it is often muddy, this is the jungle after all.

I can definitely recommend this place. :)

Posada Amazonas Overview

Book a room at the Posada Amazonas lodge, Peru for a genuine eco-tourist experience. This Tambopata lodge is located in the territory of the Infierno Community, where indigenous Ese'ejas live, directly adjacent to the Tambopata-Candamo National Reserve. Posada Amazonas is a 30 bedroom lodge owned by the Community of Infierno and managed by Rainforest Expeditions. It was built using a combination of native materials and modern technology: the entire roof is made of high-quality crisneja palm fronds, and the floors are of tropical mahogany. Guests enjoy resting and socializing in the common areas of the Posada Amazonas, which include a dining room and bar, a reception lounge with souvenir shop, and an interpretative centre. Three self-serve meals are prepared at the lodge each day; all fresh fruits and vegetables are thoroughly disinfected, and drinking water, tea, and coffee are prepared from water that has been carefully boiled, filtered, and cooled. The time required to travel from Puerto Maldonado to Posada Amazonas is less than two hours, so visitors can start exploring the forest the same afternoon they arrive. Programs available through the lodge including canopy tower visit 33 metres/98 feet up view of the rain forest; watching parrots and parakeets at a clay lick; Ethnobotanial tour; Ceiba trail hike; paddling a catamaran in Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake in hopes of seeing the resident family of giant river otters and night walks to the forest.
