Posada Amazonas is owned by the indigenous Ese’Eja community of Infierno. This welcoming lodge, two hours 30 minutes by boat from Puerto Maldonado, is nestled in a patch of primary Amazonian rainforest close to the Tambopata River in the world famous Tambopata National Reserve.
The sensitively built lodge was constructed using locally sourced timber, palm fronds and clay. There are 18 Classic Rooms with private bathrooms, hot water showers and mosquito nets above the beds, and an open side facing the forest which helps with ventilation. There is no internet or electricity in these rooms but kerosene lamps are candles are provided. Electricity and internet are only available in the communal areas of the lodge.
There are also 12 Superior Rooms that offer more space, electricity and lighting until 2200, and internet. Umbrellas and safety deposit boxes are provided in these rooms.
A generator powers the main dining area and lounge in the evenings giving free internet and electricity for a limited period in these communal areas. Meals are served buffet style in the main dining room.
Despite its relatively close proximity to Puerto Maldonado, the forest here is full of wildlife and a range of activities are on offer. These include a 30-metre canopy tower, Tres Chimbadas oxbow lake, ethno-botanical trail and working farm and rainforest hikes.
30 rooms in five wings connected by raised boardwalks with private bathrooms and hot water showers, dining and lounge area, internet access, and a wellness and holistic centre offering massages and aromatherapy.
Giant otters and caiman on the nearby lake; flocks of parrots and sometimes macaws feeding at a clay lick; howler, capuchin and squirrel monkeys, and saddleback tamarins feeding in the forest.
Community visits, kayaking, mountain biking, canopy climbing and visits to the Wellness Centre.
