Only a three-hour journey from Puerto Maldonado, Posada Amazonas offers an accessible and authentic experience in the Amazon rainforest. What makes Posada Amazonas unique is that it’s actually owned by the local indigenous community of Infierno, meaning your stay contributes to a sustainable livelihood for inhabitants of the Amazon. It’s a top recommendation from Good Life Expeditions for an Amazon lodge.
Arriving at the lodge, you’ll be impressed by the beautiful wooden structure that was built using native architecture and eco-friendly materials and technology, blending effortlessly with the surrounding foliage.
The 24 rooms and 6 suites all offer comfortable beds draped with mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms with eco-friendly toiletries and warm showers. Rooms have one wall completely open and exposed to the jungle, inviting the sights and sounds of the rainforest in. Electricity is only available at certain times of the day – but it’s enough to charge your devices and provide light in the evenings.
Communal areas are bright and airy, with high ceilings and again, mostly open to the forest. Relax with a cocktail from the bar, browse the gift shop and even indulge in a massage or reflexology treatment at the small spa. You’ll be well-fed during your stay, with three impressive meals a day, served buffet-style offering a range of tasty international fare and Peruvian dishes, with an emphasis on using local sustainable ingredients.
The sustenance will serve you well, as you’ll probably spend most of your time out exploring the rainforest. The lodge offers an impressive program of activities with expert local guides – walks through the jungle, climbing canopy towers, canoe rides, visits to Oxbow lakes, clay licks and night walks will give you ample opportunities to spot the wildlife. You’re sure to spot squirrel monkeys, howler monkeys, macaws and giant river otters, among others.
