Posada Amazonas 3d/2n

Posada Amazonas is a 30 bedroom lodge. Thanks to its accesibility, excellent wildlife observation opportunities, cultural context and comfortable accommodations, Posada Amazonas is ideal for a two night introduction to Amazonia´s richest rain forests.

Posada Amazonas is located within the territory of the Infierno Community. It is built within the 2,000 hectare, private, communal reserve, which in turn is directly adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve.

Program itinerary

Day 1: Lima or Cusco - Puerto Maldonado - Posada Amazonas

Upon arrival from Lima or Cusco, you will be met for one guide at the airport (The guides are biologists, tourism professionals, or community members – English speaking ones) and then we will have a ten minutes drive to Posada Amazonas headquarter. While enjoying your first taste of the forest in the gardens we will ask you to pack only the necessary gear for your next few days, and leave the rest at the safe deposit. This helps us to keep the boats and cargo light.

Skirting Puerto Maldonado, we drive 20 kilometers to the Tambopata River Port, entering the Native Community of Infierno. The port is a communal business.

We will enjoy our boxed Lunch on board.

The forty five minute boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Posada Amazonas will take us into the Community´s Primary Forest Private Reserve.

Upon arrival, the lodge manager will welcome you and brief you with important navigation and security tips.
A twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas leads to the 30 meter scaffolding canopy tower. A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From top you obtain spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest cut by the Tambopata River winding through the middle. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon, or mixed species canopy flocks land in the treetop next to you.

We will have our dinner at the lodge.
Overnight in Posada Amazonas.

Meals: box lunch and dinner

Day 2: Rainforest activities - Posada Amazonas

After our breakfast, we will visit Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake, it will take thirty minutes by boat and forty five minutes hiking from Posada Amazonas. Once there you will paddle around the lake in a catamaran, searching for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of our lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers.

Then we will have the opportunity to see the parrot clay lick. This clay lick is only a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas. From a blind located about twenty meters away you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on a river bank. Species such as Mealy and Yellow- headed Amazon, Blue-headed Parrot and Dusky headed Parakeet descend at this clay lick. The clay lick is most active at dawn and during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.

Lunch.

We can also take a Ethnobotanical tour. A twenty minute boat drive downriver leads you to a trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape. The Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicines out of forest plants and administers them to patients who choose their little clinic. They have produced a trail which explains the different medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants.

Dinner.

We can also have a night walk. You will have the option of hiking out at night, when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. Much easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.
