Your driver will be waiting for you at Padre Aldamiz, Puerto Maldonado international airport and a 10-minute drive will take you to the lodge's headquarters in town. While enjoying your first taste of the rainforest in our gardens we will ask you to pack only the necessary for your stay at the lodge, and leave the rest at our safe deposit. This helps us keep the boats and cargo light.
Drive 12 miles (20 km) on the outskirt of Puerto Maldonado to the Tambopata River Port, in the Infierno inidigenous community. The port is a communal business. The forty-five-minute boat ride from the Tambopata Port to the Posada Amazonas will take you into the community's primary forest private reserve.
Upon arrival, the lodge manager will welcome you and give you an important safety brief about the area.
A twenty-minute walk from the Posada Amazonas leads to the 100-foot (30 m) canopy tower. A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From atop you will get spectacular views of the vast expanses of the forest with the Tambopata River winding through the middle. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon while the canopy is always teeming with birdlife and the occasional monkey.
A daily presentation about the Infierno ecotourism project is available every night from a staff member.
Overnight at Posada Amazonas Lodge.
