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
I stayed 3 nights here with my two boys and had a wonderful time. There were so many thoughtful touches throughout our stay from the iced water on the coach, snacks on our treks and hot water bottles in our beds (we had unusually cold weather - but perfect for walking). The trips were well organised and our guide (Roger) was really knowledgable and great company. I was a little sad to leave this magical place.

I really cant comprehend how anyone could rate this place less than 5 stars. My fiance and I stayed at Inkaterra Reserva for 2 nights and everything was absolute perfection. This was the highlight of our Peru trip, yes, even over Machu Pichu. From the moment we landed at the airport, they had everything taken care of. We didnt have to worry about our bags, they just disappeared and showed up at our cabin once we arrived and had an amazing lunch. It was about a 20 min bus ride (air conditioned and gave us cold waters), then a 45 min-1 hr boat ride to the lodge. Once we arrived, everyone went into the main room; they let us know we would go have lunch (it was about 2pm when we arrived), then after lunch, you grab someone and they take you to your cabin. Our cabin was amazing. I believe there are different size cabins (some for larger families and others for couples). We were a couple so we had that size, right on the water (request Cabin 22 if your going as a couple)- in my opinion, we really lucked out! I was nervous about bugs, but we didnt see a single one in our cabin. There were robes laid out, our luggage was there, a nice shower, bathroom, flashlights, bug spray (they really thought of it all). I believe the electricity was on from 5am-10 am, then 11:30-3:30, then 6-11 (could be wrong, but we utilized that time to charge our flashlights and gopro). We did the pirhanna fishing excursion- highly recommend!! You catch pirhannas, then Wesley, the cook, who is AMAZING, comes with you and cooks them up! Super cool experience! Our guide was Gustavo- we really lucked out with him as well. He was soooo knowledgable, friendly, funny, and just seemed really passionate about his home and surroundings in the Amazon. He, and all the other staff we encountered, were catering to us the entire time. My fiance shawn, got some bad acid reflex (probably from several Pico Sours the night before) and didnt feel well after we ate lunch (the pirhanna lunch), Gustavo brought him gatorade, the boat captain, Sanuel, gave him Effervesent tablets and within minutes, shawn was feeling great again. Even later that night at dinner, Wesly came out of the kitchen to check up on shawn and make sure he was feeling better. Literally top notch service. We were very surprised with how good the food was ! We figured it would be difficult out in the jungle to get stuff shipped in, etc. but we were very impressed. Some of the other wait staff we had, Roberto, Dante and Marco Antonio- were all similar to Wesley, Sanuel and Gustavo- running around to make sure that we were happy and everything was going well. Marco Antonio was literally running at one point to bring out our drinks! Yomi- who we didnt interact with, but was on the night boat ride our first night, was awesome at keeping an eye out for wildlife- we really dont know how he did it, but he'd spot a cayman in the water from it seemed like 200 feet away! Jonathan and Alma picked us up from the airport and were (again) very friendly and accomodating! We let Jonathan know that shawn had some laundry to be done, and he called to someone right away to pick it up. SO SO SO super impressed! I really hope we can make it back here one day. NO Wifi, but that was one of our favorite parts :) We sat next to a gal on our plane ride back and she said the place her and her friends stayed at had bats in the room as soon as they got there , the food wasnt good, it was 4 hours from the airport (by boat) and just overall her and her friends were so happy to get back to civilization. Her experience just made us even happier that we decided to stay at Inkaterra, as it truly was a luxurious stay in the Amazon, without giving up any part of the natural feel.

Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica offers cushy comforts in the middle of an amazing jungle. My wife and I spent three nights here in a private cabin (they're all private cabins) overlooking the broad Madre de Dios River. During the day (and into the evening) we took private tours offering close-up experiences with the habitat and jungle wildlife. (On a night hike we encountered a two-toed sloth steps off the trail!) Meals, with wonderful Peruvian accents, are served by attentive waiters in a spacious dome-topped hut. The one thing that takes a bit getting used to is the "Limited Electricity" policy. As the book states it: "Following our conservation and ecological philosophy, and striving to maintain authenticity, the power generator works from 4am to 3:30pm and from 6pm to 11pm." Rooms are equipped with rechargeable flashlights, which you'll want to bring to dinner to read the menu. Lighting in the dining room is limited even when the electricity is turned on. Beds are equipped with mosquito netting, but we found this was more for ambiance than practicality. Small bottles of citronella are provided in the rooms. (You'll want to use this on the jungle hikes.)

Inkaterra is an all inclusive facility that offers 3 meals fine dining and excellent day packed activities from day to night. Through their impeccable service and their well thought out excursions, we get to experience the Amazon in the daytime and in the night time. We had an amazing time. I highly recommend Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica.

3 day 2 night family package experience was wonderful. We had a private guide, Justo, was the best! Besides being very knowledgeable he knew bird calls and names of all the species we saw. Lake Sandoval and canopy tour were amazing. (Be aware if fear of heights) saw an entire howler monkey family in the canopy tops near the last canopy tower. Huge flocks of blue and yellow macaws. The food is great and lunch especially with more variety. The staff here make this truly a wonderful experience.
