The rainforest lodging at Posada Amazonas, owned by the local indigenous community, accommodates a more adventurous traveler.
This was an amazing tour. The guides were very helpful and spoke good English. Posada Amazonas was beautiful. Set in the middle of the Amazon Jungle with transport by river motorised canoe. The rooms were huge with 3 beds in the double room. We didn't have hot water, but it was so hot and humid outside it didn't matter. The dining room was huge with buffet meals that were varied and beautiful. There were many rainforest walks which were terrific, including the Observation Tower, parrot clay lick observation hides and night walks. We saw a lot of monkeys, birds and insects. The Oxbow Lake was very peaceful. Once again we saw many birds but the caiman and river otters were hiding the morning we were there. We did however have a lot of fun catching piranha on stick fishing rods. The guides took them off the hooks and threw them back. The visit to the Medicinal Garden was very interesting and informative, including tasting shots of the alcoholic medicines at the end. If we had more time it would have been good to stay 4 or 5 days.
