Fodor's Expert Review Hacienda Concepción

20-min boat trip east of Puerto Maldonado, Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru

Owned by Inkaterra, Hacienda Concepción is a good option for travelers who want to experience the rain forest in comfort or are short on time. It is in a 2,000-acre private nature reserve with a small lake and plenty of wildlife. Guest rooms are removed from the jungle, sharing the main lodge with the restaurant and bar. Spacious, thatched bungalows with screened walls and a sitting area with a couch and hammock offer more exposure to the rain forest,but they're close enough to each other that you'll hear your neighbors. Rates include guided tours to Lago Sandoval, the Reserva Amazonica Canopy Walkway, and other local attractions.

PROS
