Fodor's Review

With a massive thatched restaurant and airy bungalows, set amid trees near the river, Reserva Amazónica is the region's fanciest and most expensive lodge, and it defines "jungle chic." Buildings are screened in and have ceiling fans—details most jungle lodges lack. Its 17,000 hectare (42,000-acre) private nature reserve, a 30-minute boat ride down the Madre de Dios River from Puerto Maldonado, is traversed by trails and features a canopy walkway with suspension bridges strung between treetop platforms. The property is home to jungle rodents called agoutis, several species of monkeys, and an array of birds; but you won't see as much wildlife here as at most other lodges. The half-day trip to nearby Lago Sandoval is highly recommended. Dinners complete the jungle experience with amazing regional cuisine.
