We spent 12 days in Peru on an organized tour and were happy that one of our nights included a stay at this unique lodge in the jungle. I loved so much about it! The friendly owner welcomed us warmly upon arrival and offered an orientation to the lodge and its environmentally sensitive design and practices. The lovely open-air reception...

I've stayed at the Eco Quechua Lodge twice now. Both times were amazing. After 15 years of not eating fish, I found myself in a predicament where I ate fish or had to settle with veggies (not their fault, but those were the circumstances), and the river trout at the Eco Quechua is the reason I now eat fish on...

We arrived at the lodge after a long day hiking Machu Picchu and a minor motorcycle incident. The staff was very quick to help us with a first aid kit and make sure we were OK before starting the check-in process. The staff also went above and beyond in helping us arrange travel to Pisac. The room was comfortable and...

Great staff and wonderful facility! We stayed here and used the guide services. It was a great experience. The food was very good as well. It was a great change from Lima and Cusco and well worth it!

A gem! Although no hot water to bathe in, and you MUST brush teeth with bottled water, I could not have asked for a more gorgeous, relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are clean. You can hear the river running, humming as you drift off to sleep. There are hammocks to relax on, options to learn more about local birds. Overall wonderful...

It was an amazing trek to get from Aguas Calientes to Hydro Electrica (we hiked rather than waited for the train) and Eco Quechua was the perfect terminus for the day. Just down the road from the glorious hot springs, the owners were amazingly friendly, spoke excellent English, and were fabulous cooks. The cute room was well appointed for literally...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the high jungle, it offers a lovely and tranquil getaway. Like a jungle lodge in the Amazon, some windows are open to nature so that you feel like you're part of it all (beds have mosquito netting). There's just something about this place that makes my stress melt away as soon as I arrive. Let me stretch out in a hammock with a good book and one of their awesome pisco sours and I can spends days at a time here, forgetting the outside world even exists. The entire lodge uses natural materials, including wood, rock, and bamboo, and its newest rooms feature private bathrooms. Ever dreamed of living in a grown-up's treehouse? This is that dream come true. The owners and staff couldn't be friendlier and are genuinely interested in ensuring that you have everything you need and are having the best time possible. Make your reservation includes dinner as these are bound to be some of the tastiest that you will have in Peru-lunch can also be added and breakfast is always included. Massages can be booked with advance notice and an outdoor Jacuzzi is currently in the works. The nearby Colcamayo hot springs are actually much nicer as well as hotter than those in Aguas Calientes, the town right below Machu Picchu, despite it being named after the springs. You are much better off getting your fill of the soothing waters here. Other outings that can be arranged through the lodge are zip-lining, a tour of a coffee plantation, and a hike to Llactapata, an Inca site from which you may catch a glimpse of Machu Picchu. If you're a coffee lover, the coffee plantation tour is highly recommended, mostly so that you can buy one of the world's best coffees, organic and grown here in the high jungle. To get here does require a bit of planning but don't let that keep you away. If it was any easier, there would be hordes and then you wouldn't want to go! Basically, you can either take the train or a bus. To take the train, you will need to get a ticket first to Aguas Calientes and from there to Hidroelectrica. At this point, you cannot buy tickets for the second leg until you get to Aguas Calientes so, if you are coming direct from Cusco or the Sacred Valley (recommended) be prepared to get off and have a cup of coffee until your next train leaves. From Ollantaytambo, the trip to Aguas Calientes takes about 1.5 hours and from Aguas to Hidroelectrica, about 30 minutes. The downside to taking the train is that it can be expensive and there are only a few trains per day between Aguas Calientes and Hidroelectrica. For this reason, you can't just go from the lodge to Machu Picchu and back in one day. On the other hand, if you're up for a hike, it's about a two-hour walk from Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes and it's a flat, easy trip. Taking the bus from Cusco is infinitely cheaper but will require a bit more investment in time. You will take the bus to Quillabamba but get off at Santa Maria. From there, you can get a shared car to Hidroelectrica and get off at the EcoQuechua Lodge. The entire trip will take between six and seven hours. Spend a couple of nights at the lodge, walk to Aguas Calientes, spend a night there, and then visit Machu Picchu first thing the next morning. You can then do the trip in reverse or take the train back. ... more   less
