RESERVA AMAZONICA is an ecological lodge in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, adjacent to the Tambopata national park. Since 1975, the lodge has been instrumental in the scientific study of the rainforest. The rooms are simple and fit into the natural surroundings. The wildlife is remarkable, from giant and colorful macaws, to toucans, parrots, tapirs, tamarin monkeys, owls, the gorgeous Southern Amazon Red Squirrels, as well as a large variety of monkeys. Services and activities include: A massage room, canopy walkway, nature programs for adults and children, evening walks, astronomy. Learn about medicinal plants, birds, ants and so much more.
Rooms are palm thatched-roofs, wooden and rustic, built in the Amazon's traditional style. Each room is attractively furnished with log chairs, comfortable beds shrouded by mosquito netting and a small porch with two hammocks. The cabanas have no electricity, and no hot water, adding to the charm and authenticity. After dinner, guests return to their cabanas across tree-trunk-boardwalks to find lit candles and kerosene lamps lighting the entry and bathroom. Three of the cabanas rate as "suites" and have a more luxurious bedroom with two double beds. Also following indigenous architectural traditions, suites are more spacious and feature large bathroom showers with solar heated filtered water, a walk-in closet, large windows and a spacious terrace with two hammocks.
