Fodor's Expert Review Posada Amazonas

2-hr bus and boat trip on Tambopata River south of Puerto Maldonado, 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; whereas 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 rain forest, a boat tour of Lago Tres Chimbadas, an observation tower, and a medicinal-plant tour led by an Ese'Eja shaman.
