Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica in Puerto Maldonado, Peru

Along the Madre de Dios River, in southern Peru's Tambopata Nature Reserve, this fabulous tropical escape welcomes you to cast off from the world and truly experience the rainforest and its secrets. 35 thatched roof cabanas are open and inviting, crafted from rich natural woods, as cool breeze flows freely throughout. Relax in complete serenity as you stretch out on your screened porch, resting in the delightful comforts of your own tropical hammock. In the evening enjoy deeply comfortable beds as lantern light magically plays throughout your room. At Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, truly immerse yourself in the enchanting simplicity of rainforest life, discover the beauty of Peru, and find inner peace.
As the sun warms the jungle canopy, make your way to the main building for a delicious breakfast in the dining room. Venture out ready to explore, and hike through the rainforest wetlands along the Anaconda Walk. Continue on to the botanical gardens of Hacienda Concepcion, delight in a jungle canopy tour as you walk 103 feet above the forest floor, then stroll through the enchanting and magical Inkaterra Butterfly House. In the afternoon relax as you canoe across the placid waters of Lake Sandoval, then enjoy some fishing on Lake Valencia before returning to the resort for a deeply refreshing massage at ENA Spa, right on the shores of the river. As the sun begins to set over the Amazon take part in an evening boat excursion down the Madre de Dios River, and watch as the rainforest magically transforms from day to night. After an amazing day exploring all that the nature reserve has to offer, sit down in the dining room for an amazingly fresh, local dinner paired with the perfect cocktail. Retire to your cabana that night, lanterns shining through the forest, and fall asleep to the gentle sounds of Tambopata, Peru and Inktaterra Reserva Amazonica.

Reviews for Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica
Wow! We started our 12-day visit to Peru at this resort. It proved to be the best possible way to unplug and decompress! I totally forgot about work and all other worries as the experience was so amazing. The accommodations were great for my family! The experiences in the dining room were great - food and service. Yomi was our tour guide for our excursions. He is simply the best. Informative, patient, friendly, great sense of humor. We cannot say enough great things about him. We saw incredible wildlife - from ants to Tarantulas to monkeys to macaws to black caimans. We were there over the holidays. On Christmas morn, Resort management had a gift for EVERY guest staying in the resort. We stayed at three Inkaterra properties during the course of a week and were spoiled by their accommodations, service and Food & Beverage. Thanks for such fond memories!

We loved our stay at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica! Right from the start when we were picked up from the airport, driven to the boat ramp on the banks of the mighty Rio Madre De Dios, helped on board one of the Lodge's river boats and driven to the base of the wide welcoming steps up to the Lodge itself. Wow! The setting is so beautiful. The Lodge itself is spacious,cool and comfortable, the staff delightfully friendly and professional too. Our guide, Karlos was superb. We did at least two activities each day and sometimes a third in the evening. We were happy to get an excellent sleep each night in our comfortable, airy cabana. Our big bed with its pristine white linen was fully enclosed at night with mosquito nets to keep the jungle bugs at bay. We enjoyed the hammock and easy chair in our leisure time. The shower was superb. Meals were delicious, wine and beer all top notch. The shop provided items we needed such as an extra white cotton long sleeved shirt - a necessity to ward off bugs in the day time. Rain washes off insect repellent. This was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience, well worth every dollar spent. We shall treasure the memories, all of them good.

The setting is beautiful! The cabins are very nicely screened in and surprisingly bug-free. Our's was right by the river with a beautiful view and seclusion. We had scheduled a private guide for all our excursions, and she was quite nice and pleasant. Beyond that, our stay was very unimpressive and lacking. Service was mediocre and we experienced some quite bizarre moments. For example, during dinner one evening, I mentioned that I had received the wrong dessert. The waiter informed us that they were out of what I had ordered. But things got weird when he noticed that I might not necessarily like the replacement, and asked what else was available. He took away the replacement dessert. We assumed he was going to bring the menu back, but turns out I had lost my chance at dessert. No dessert for you! Another example: transportation to the airport was included in our stay. And we had paid an extra night's stay so that we wouldn't have to vacate our room at check-out time since we had an early evening flight. They attempted to bundle us with other guest leaving many hours earlier than our flight. We mentioned that we had paid an extra night so we wouldn't hang out the one-room airport for hours. The lodge threw a hissy-fit at having to honor the transportation in a reasonable time. Finally, they forced us to board an excursion boat, wasting our time as they loaded up 30 people and made a midway stop unloading these folks. When we got to town, we had to wait 20-30 minutes in the rain for our transportation to the airport as the hotel gal stood there rolling her eyes at us CONSTANTLY. We are surprised she didn't hurt her eyeballs. You definitely will NOT get what you pay for.

We loved the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica! Our family of five (all grown adult children) stayed at the Inkaterra for three nights. It was a wonderful experience. The individual cabanas are beautifully done with hammocks and comfortable beds. Rooms are clean and very nice. The staff left several little touches for us every day that made it special. We did at least two hikes a day. Our guide, Freddy, was the best! We also did a night boat exploratory ride and saw some of the creatures that come out at night. Food was excellent, as was the service. Thank you Frank, Midori, and all the others that served us with a smile every day. Numerous little creatures hang out on the grounds, including monkeys. We loved it, and being outdoors. Expect hot and humid, and the lodge is very environmental friendly, so don't expect AC or a hair dryer! You are there to enjoy nature. Loved it, and so did my whole family.

I don't mind not having wifi but at Ā£450 a night I do expect electricity. Not here though, they deliberately turn off the power twice a day. Not helpful when you are up early for one of their excursions or returning to the airport. Try shaving, dressing and packing in the dark. Food is good but drinks are expensive. The lack of wildlife on the excursions astounded me. If you are interested in ants and the occasional frog then this is for you. I thought it was a TOTAL waste of money.
