WHY THIS TRIP
The Posada Amazonas Jungle Lodge is a comfortable yet unobtrusive 30-bedroom lodge owned by the Community of Infierno. Thanks to its accessibility, excellent wildlife observation opportunities, and comfortable accommodations, Posada Amazonas is the ideal short, economic, introductory nature tour 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. Visitors can paddle a catamaran around the oxbow lakes near Posada Amazonas in search of families of playful giant river otters.
Parrot Clay Licks
Less than one kilometer from Posada Amazonas are two parrot clay licks. The noise level and superb photography at this distance complements the increased diversity and abundance of parrots experienced at the famous clay lick at the Tambopata Research Center.
A 35-meter metal tower provides safe and effortless access to the canopy: visitors walk up a bannistered staircase, stopping to rest and inspect the canopy on any of the tower’s 20 platforms.
Ask your guide about opportunities for night walks. After dinner, groups will take short hikes on trails searching for frogs and nocturnal mammals. These outings provide the best opportunities for macrophotography of insects and frogs.
Most of the staff and a few of the guides are community members with whom you’ll be able to share stories and anecdotes. On guided walks you will learn from community members the way in which they utilize forest resources in everyday life.
