You’ll find a good example at Posada Amazonas
Posada Amazonas is in the Puerto Maldonado jungle; it is an enchanting project that not only offers comfortable and adventurous lodgings but also the closest contact with nature.
The lodge belongs to the Ese-Eja Native Community in Infierno and is managed in association with Rainforest Expeditions. Its location is simply magical: inside the Ese-Eja Community Reserve, adjoining the Tambopata Nature Reserve.
There are only thirty rooms surrounded by exotic marvels; despite being close to the town of Puerto Maldonado, Posada Amazonas enables you to penetrate the jungle and carry out activities such as canopy walking, with its spectacular views from thirty meters
above the forest floor.
You can also visit ethnobotanical centers and traditional clinics run by shamans, paddleboard in the lake; take excursions to the community’s smallholdings and help with their daily work gathering food and minding their crops and animals; you can even relax in the lodge’s welfare center.
An intense and unforgettable experience in the Amazon jungle.
