The ecological reserve is part of the Inkaterra Amazonica property. As part of the many excursions offered, we trekked through the eco reserve which includes a fun canopy walk across high tree bridges, a visit to their eco center and a hike through the amazon rainforest. It was an enjoyable hike and climb. The kids particularly enjoyed the canopy walk... More

If you want a low impact relatively low effort introduction to the Amazon, this is a great place to do it. Passionate and knowledgeable guides will give you as many tours as you can fit into a memorable short stay.

the canopy tree-top (rope bridge) tour was very safe and very well done. the end of the rope bridge also has a one-room "hotel" room you can rent from inkaterra if you wanted a true night up in the canopy.

This was the nicest place we stayed in during our whole trip. Rooms are very nice, hot showers, great food and great service. The target clientele is aimed more at those looking for luxury. We were 4 backpackers and it was great to stay somewhere nice. The excursions are ok. The jungle walks could have been longer, further into the... More

The Inkaterra Lodge and Ecological Reserve was the highlight of our trip to Peru - a trip that had many highlights. Staying at the Lodge in a luxury cabin, eating at the fabulous restaurant, excellent service - but I digress. The ecological reserve has pathways to explore the nature and animals that live in the jungle, with rest stops along... More

Allmost all tours were inclouded (pirañha-fishing is extra but well worth the money) Thanks especially to Leon (ranger) and Jose (waiter) for making our stay... More

A magnificent ecological reserve upriver some 40 km by boat from Puerto Maldonado. It displays amazing biological diversity and provides an opportunity to view part of the Amazon Basin in its pristine state.

If you have a desire to see the jungle, this is the place to stay. The "cabins" were comfortable and the food was delicious. The guides were very good and understandable. We took advantage of all the excursions, and we even paid extra to fish/eat piranhas. Staying 3nights/4days is plenty if you do the extra excursion, otherwise just stay 2... More
