What a superb place
Such a wonderful experience staying in this truly exceptional place set on the side of the Rio Madre De Dios River. One hour by long boat from Puerto Maldonado. May be remote, but it is a magical place with warm and friendly staff. Excellent range of wildlife tours available provided by knowledgeable tour guides. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.
The Resort Inkaterra is located inside the Amazon forest. For reaching this place we reached Puerto Maldonado by air. From there we traveled in a boat for 50 minutes to reach the resort. The hotel structure is made up of wood and looks nice. The cottages are also all wooden including all the furniture. The hotel staff is very helpful and hospitable. The food served didn’t have much variety. The cottages are equipped with torches, slippers and water bottles. I found there was less reading lights in the room. In the toilet one lantern is kept every night. There is no internet available which makes the stay very dull. The forest is very dense and good
Such an awesome experience
Spent three nights here and had the most amazing time. The accommodation is lovely and rustic but extremely comfortable and having netted windows allowed you really experience the night noises and birds singing in the early morning. Food was great and the staff wonderful. The excursions were well worked out and David our guide was fantastic with wonderful knowledge of everything the rain forest had to offer. We also went piranha fishing which we then ate for lunch which was an added bonus
Different Than Expected
A mixture of enjoyment and disappointment. I had three nights in a cabana which was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and screened for protect from insects. There were excellent amenities, with toiletries provided. I half expected lizards, spiders etcetera, but none eventuated. Bottled water was provided. It was very hot when I visited in early November, usually around 40c. There is no airconditioning,but ceiling fans were provided. Electricity in general is only available for a few hours in the morning and the evening. Candles are provided for night vision. The main lodged which entailed the dining area was exceptionally good, as was the food which was fantastic.The staff were outstanding, especially Willy and Ray behind the bar, Karina who helped in the kitchen and serving tables. A standout was Carlos who became the peacemaker when I had a disagreement with one of the Guides, Louis. Some of the tours were quite taxing physically. No one asked as to your level of fitness, and at times it was hard to keep up with Louis on the 5000mtre trec to the lake to see the Giant otters. Overall it ticked the box for having been to the Amazon, but while you could hear ocassional monkeys, there was little wildlife to be seen,they most likely having gone much further into the jungle in what is essentially farming communities or guest lodges along the Amazon River.
Great wildlife reserve in the southern Amazonian region of Peru.
The way to Inkaterra Amazonia Lodge is by boat. We think that's how all of their supplies come in. We spent three nights and two full days for excursions there in November, just the beginning of the "rainy season." The accommodations are in cabanas, with screen around and mosquito netting over the beds. Individual bathrooms in each unit. The screened "porch" area in the front is a great place to rest between excursions. The lodge assigns "excursion guides" to help you plan excursions and then take you on them. We were a group of two. But groups of 10 or more were also there and they handled it with precision. We had trips up the river at night to see wildlife, to local lakes for wildlife, and to a farm which provides some of the produce for the lodge. Since wildlife don't follow our human "sleep-in" routines, we had to get up one morning at 5, and have a brief breakfast before heading out, but there was always time to relax in the middle of the day. The food was very good, considering that they have to bring everything in. Electricity goes out for a few hours in the afternoon and some hours overnight, but it's manageable.
