Peru jungle – looking for wildlife/comfort balance

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning a 14-18 days to Peru in 2016, most likely August, unless a different time frame is recommended for better weather.

We know we want to visit the Sacred Valley, Cusco and Machu Pichu (no hike for us, we’ll stay in Agua Caliente). But I also want to spend around 4 days in a jungle lodge. I don’t think we’re interested in an Amazon cruise, but I’m open to suggestions.

I am looking for a place that has grounds with trails where I can walk by myself, balances wildlife (birds, frogs, animals, etc.) with some comfort. A private bathroom is a must, and for medical reasons, if taking a day tour, would need access to a bathroom with running water (clay click tour comes to mind here).
What lodge do you suggest? Thanks
