Fodor's Expert Review Romero Rainforest Lodge

Manu Biosphere Reserve, 20 km (12 miles) northwest of Boca Manu, 350 km (217 miles) northwest of Puerto Maldonado, Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru

Offering comfortable accommodations inside the Manu Reserved Zone, several hours by boat up the Manu River, the Romero Rainforest Lodge provides access to impressive natural attractions (including two oxbow lakes) without requiring you to rough it too much. Rooms in thatched, wooden buildings have private bathrooms with hot water, screened windows, and small porches. The dining room and bar are found under a thatched roof nearby. You might see several species of monkeys and such rare birds as the agami heron and black-faced cotinga here. It is visited on InkaNatura Travel's six- and seven-day tours into the Biosphere Reserve.
