Posada Amazonas

Tambopata, Peru

Prices From: $225

Posada Amazonas is a 30 bedroom lodge owned by the Community of Infierno. Thanks to its accesibility, excellent wildlife observation opportunities, cultural context and comfortable accommodations, Posada Amazonas is ideal for a two or three night introduction to the Amazon´s richest rainforests.

Posada Amazonas is built using a combination of traditional native materials (wood, palm fronds, wild cane and clay) and architecture and modern day eco-lodge technology.The rooms are quite large and can comfortably hold three beds, although most are set up for two. One side of each room does not have a wall or screening, acting as a large window overlooking the forest. The ability to incorporate this "luxurious" design element is due to a lack of mosquitos around the lodge clearing. A second small window on the opposite side, set up very high, keeps the rooms well ventilated.

Each room has a private bathroom with cold water only. Rooms and bathrooms are separated by drapes. Each room has beds, mosquito nets, bedside tables and hammocks or lounge chairs. Rooms are decorated with bas-relief wood-carvings representing stories and characters from Ese-eja traditions.

Common areas are open and spacey and offer ample area for resting and socializing. They include a dining room and bar, a reception lounge with souvenir shop, and an interpretation center. Dining at Posada Amazonas consists of three self-serve three course meals. Meals consist of soup or appetizers, salad, main course, and desserts combining Peruvian and international cuisine. Posada Amazonas also provides at all times unlimited amounts of boiled, filtered, cooled drinking water, coffee or tea and fresh fruit juices during the meals.

Posada Amazonas is located within the territory of the Infierno Community. It is built within the 2,000 hectare, private, communal reserve, which in turn is directly adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve. It offers enough quality natural and cultural resources to keep your agenda full for your two or three night stay: giant river otters at an oxbow lake, parrots at a clay lick, a canopy tower and an ethnobotanical trail.
