Fodor's Expert Review Posada Amazonas

Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru Fodor's Choice

Guest rooms are in long buildings with high, thatched roofs, and wide, screenless windows; mosquito nets protect sleepers, and kerosene lanterns provide light at night, though the bar/restaurant and superior rooms have electricity. The lodge is owned by the Ese'Eja Indian community of Infierno, but operated by Rainforest Expeditions. Activities include nature walks in a 14,820-acre protected rainforest, a boat tour of Lago Tres Chimbadas, an observation tower, and a medicinal-plant tour led by an Ese'Eja shaman.
