Recommended place to stay:

Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica

Last updated: 11 February, 2023

This upscale rainforest hotel with beautiful views out over the Madre de Dios river (a tributary of the Amazon proper) is only a 45-minute boat ride from the hub town of Puerto Maldonado.

Though set in its own recovered, secondary forest preserve, it’s too close to human settlements to be pristine: there are jungle lodges in wilder Amazon settings – even nearby. But none are more comfortable than Inkaterra: huge, airy and secluded high thatch-roofed wooden cabanas/bungalows, some with their own plunge pools, soft cotton sheets and hypoallergenic pillows. There’s even a spa.

Surrounding area

The hotel sits in its own 17,000 hectare protected area, with an extensive network of boardwalks and an impressive canopy walkway. With agricultural land nearby, wildlife is not as prolific as it is in the nearby Tambopata National Reserve.

You will see plenty of birds and primates, but for the chance to see rarer species, bigger mammals or the famous Tambopata clay lick you will need to stay further up the Tambopata River.
