First-time travelers to the jungle might feel apprehensive towards making a visit if they don’t have safe and comfortable place to stay. If you’re looking to live with five stars, here are several options.
Sustainable development at Posada Amazonas in near Puerto Maldonado
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.

Luxury in the Jungle aboard the Aria
Designed by the renowned architect Jordi Puig, the Aria maintains the style of a modern boutique hotel without leaving aside the details that connect it with the jungle as the wooden floors and decorations with indigenous motifs. The neutral colors and the soft light of its facilities allow the outdoor nature to shine, from the green of the trees to the red of the sky at sunset.
Each room is a pleasure; ideal for relaxing after a busy day of fishing and outings along the Amazon. The 16 suites on the boat’s two decks all have panoramic windows so you won’t miss any of the scenery, and are air-conditioned for complete comfort. Bedding is made using Peru’s finest cotton and organic bathroom accessories give the cabins a final touch.
The food on the Aria is a delight for the taste buds. With a menu created by Executive Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, recognized for his work with cuisine using the myriad of ingredients from the Peruvian Amazon, an explosion of colors, scents, and flavors is guaranteed. Each ingredient has a history and relationship with the Amazon; an infinite source of exotic foods to create an unforgettable, luxurious gastronomic experience.
