Fodor's Review

Despite its proximity to Puerto Maldonado, this lodge (owned by InkaNatura Travel) puts you in the midst of Amazonian nature. The lodge overlooks Lago Sandoval, an oxbow lake surrounded by rain forest inside the Tambopata National Reserve. The fruit of the abundant aguaje palms attracts macaws, parrots, and monkeys, whereas the lake is home to rare giant otters. A stay includes excursions on the lake and into the surrounding forest with a naturalist guide. Small

but comfortable rooms have private baths, hot water showers, fans, and electricity during certain hours. To get here, you take a 30-minute boat ride down the Madre de Dios River from Puerto Maldonado, hike two miles down a lovely forest trail, then get into a canoe for a 30-minute paddle across the lake.
