The Posada Amazonas Lodge
– Janine, London, UK
The Posada Amazonas Lodge is the perfect choice for your first experience of the Amazon Rainforest. The lodge contains 30 bedrooms and is located just 43 minutes by boat from the town of Puerto Maldonado. Despite the close proximity to Puerto Maldonado, you will still have fantastic wildlife sighting opportunities and the Posada Amazonas is well suited to short stays of as little as two nights. On our Posada Amazonas Amazon tour, you will explore the Amazon Rainforest to enjoy the nearby clay lick, several different monkeys, lake tours, and the canopy tower.
The Posada Amazonas Lodge is made up of five wings of six rooms, which are connected by a raised boardwalk. This raising above the floor means the rainforest is left as untouched as possible as animals can still wander unobstructed through the forest. All of the bathrooms at the Posada Amazonas are private and have hot flowing water.
The wellness center at Posada Amazonas is where you can enjoy a massage or aromatherapy treatments so you can relax and enjoy the rainforest.
The Posada Amazonas is owned by the local Tambopata community of Infierno and is co-managed. The actual lodge is situated inside the Ese-Eja’s communal reserve, next to the Tambopata National Reserve
