I thought the Eco lodge and the Jungle tour was excellent.
each to their own,but i wouldn't want to pay those prices.
I agree with you about each to their own..I normally travel mid range to occasional luxury. But I loved staying in the Jungle, it is so tranquil there.
funny thing really,..."eco" added to a lodge makes the price more than double,so tourists have to work longer to earn more cash,to pay for their so called "eco" friendly trip in the first place......(which means more electricity used,and more water used,and more food eaten in their country),which equals to a not so "eco" logical scenario after all...har har..>>.oh well,if you wanna throw your dollars around,so be it..(.untill the next poor tourist comes around ,and can't do these tours).>>> because they're getting ridiculously expensive as misinformed tourists ,have fallen "hook,line and sinker" for a marketing strategy built on marrow mindedness...ho hum!!
Actually both places are well recommended.
If you are going to be in the Cusco area its much easier to go to PM as its a short 20 minute flight from Cusco airport.
To get to Iquitos you need to fly back to lima and then catch a 1 1/2 hour flight.
Almost all tourists are passing through Lima anyways so that does not require an "extra" flight.
However if you have only 3 days 2 nights I don't think it is worthwhile to go to Iquitos since you will want to travel by launch to a lodge (several hours each way depends on how high the water is). Often you will lose most of the first and last day between coordinating flight times and launch times. However if you want to see the actual Amazon River, that is not in PM.
