Reviews for Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica
In the Amazon, we stayed at the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica. It was a beautiful resort! They took very good care of you and loved that there was a fan and nice amenities (mosquito net), complimentary canteen, electricity from 5am-330pm and then 5-11pm-which is more that most of the other resorts. I even heard Justin Bieber was wanting to stay there, but it was full. We loved the canopy tours, night time walking tour, night boat tour. The highlight was the all day excursion to Lake Valencia, where we fished for pirahna, were able to see wildlife and then they made an amazing luncheon for just us. The pirahna was very delicious! We even swam in the lake too!! Our tour guide at the resort was Josue was very fun and helped us to do more fishing, however the best was at Lake Valencia. The mosquitos are quite aggressive (we had sprayed our clothes with permethrin and had 100% Deet but still had been bitten. Overall, the whole trip was phoenomenal and so fun for our family of 5 (14,14,12). It was fantastic!

This place is magical. I would definitely recommend it, despite the fact that it is very expensive (the most expensive part of our trip to Peru). We were upgraded to the Tambopata suite, which has its own plunge pool (amazingly refreshing after a long day of excursions). I would highly recommend this suite! You really get the feel of luxury, whilst at the same time being in the middle of nowhere. I have never been to an eco-lodge or camping and was hesitant about staying here. However you really feel like you are in 5 star accommodation staying here. The guides are fantastic! So knowledgable and so sweet. Josue is a FANTASTIC man and we were so lucky to have him as out guide. The only negative thing about the lodge is the food. Given how much money you pay the food could be a lot better. It is nice, but not 5 star. Very small changes could create huge improvement. All in all, you should definitely stay here! It is an AMAZING experience and I don't regret it one bit.

Great place to stay. Good selection of tours and very helpful guides. Food is also excellent. It's like a remote paradise and totally self contained and eco friendly. All inclusive price for tours, meals, accommodation and transfers.
Itâ€™s hard to rate this place because we have mixed feelings about it. We enjoyed our 45 minute river boat ride down the Amazon to the lodge. The staff and guides were very friendly and most were good, although one of the restaurant staff kept making mistakes at our table with our orders. I have been to the Amazon in Brazil, so was expecting to see flocks of parrots and other birds, but we never saw one parrot, and only a few insignificant birds. There are lots of small birds chattering in the trees in the morning, but we never saw them because they were small and hidden within the leaves of the trees. Most sounded like parakeets. We went out each night along the river to spot caiman, and did see a couple small ones hiding in the grasses, but again this was not as good as our experience in Brazil. They turn OFF the power to the ceiling fan in your cabin during the night, so several times we woke up extremely hot. We opened the cloth covering the window screens to let some air flow through, but that only works if there is a breeze, and of course it lets more light in and there is less privacy. The mosquito nets around the bed does not go right to the floor, and we got quite a few bites at night, so something was eating us! There are clouds of mosquitos around you in many areas when you go on the forest walks. Bring your own bug repellant because slathering their Citronella liquid on every 20 minutes does NOT prevent you from all the bites. I was covered in bites after the first walk, and for this reason I did not go on further walks. For the price paid on the resort and flights, I would spend money and go to the Brazilian Amazon, and forget Puerto Maldonadoâ€™s Amazon.

We stayed for 2 nights and it was worth the stay . They pick us from the Airport and take us on a 45 minutes boat ride to the lodge . The lodge is located in a secondary forest and you are taken into a place different from the city . But don't expect to be in midst of the Amazon jungle , There is no telephone reception at all and you are free from all that in your stay . No wifi either . And even there is occasional power cuts as it is in the forest . It is just located on the banks of river Madre di dios river . They have various excursions within the lodge and you have to walk a lot . If you are lucky you will be able to see some wild animals . We see a bunch of monkeys , turtles , a lot of birds , a couple of caymans. But don't expect to see any wild animals or anacondas. You will be fooled . The staff were extremely courteous and the food was good . And you stay in the cabana which is a different experience of its own . But do try it
