Posada Amazonas

Tambopata River, 40 km (25 mi) southwest of, Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru

Since this open-air lodge is surrounded by forest, you may spot birds and monkeys right from your room or the restaurant. Guest rooms are in long buildings with high, thatched roofs, and wide, screenless windows; mosquito nets protect sleepers from whatever might fly in. Unfortunately, cane walls that don't reach the roof mean limited privacy. Kerosene lanterns provide light at night; electricity is available in common areas to recharge batteries. Superior rooms have electricity from dusk to 10 pm. The lodge, jointly owned by Rainforest Editions and the Ese'eja Indian community of Infierno, offers excellent activities like nature walks in a 6,000-hectare (14,820-acre) nature reserve, boat tours of Lago Tres Chimbadas, and medicinal plant tours led by an Ese'eja shaman. Packages include transportation from Puerto Maldonado (two hours), a naturalist guide, and excursions. The minimum stay is two nights.
