From Puerto Maldonado it is a 30 minute bus journey along an unmade road to the port, followed by a 45 minute boat ride on the Tambopata river to Posada Amazonas.The lodge is owned by the indigenous Ese-Eja community of Infierno and managed in partnership with Rainforest Expeditions. The main lodge consists of a communal dining area with a bar, an interpretation centre used for presentations, a massage room and small shop selling souvenirs and essential jungle equipment. This is linked to the bedrooms by a series of raised boardwalks.
There are 30 bedrooms in total, all with private bathrooms and windowless verandahs so guests can enjoy the fascinating sights, sounds and colours of the rainforest. Each bed is equipped with its own mosquito net and kerosene lamps and candles are provided for lighting. It’s worth noting that the superior rooms are a bit more sophisticated and have doors (instead of drapes), a limited electricity supply (in the evenings) and complimentary Wi-Fi. All other guests have to use the electricity and Wi-Fi in the main lodge.
