Picking a jungle lodge

I've been trying to decide whether to stay at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica or Posada Amazonas, or some of the other lodges mentioned on TA. There are some good descriptions in the Lima forum of these two places but I thought I'd post my question in this forum, as well.

Has anyone stayed at either of these two lodges recently and therefore able to pass along both the positive and negative (if any) attributes? From the info I've gathered, these two are really standing out above the rest. Other ones I'm looking at are EcoAmazonia, Sandoval Lake Lodge, Estancia Bello Horizonte and Wasai.

I appreciate any input. Thank you!

Dear CaliGirl

I can't yet say from personal experience, but after a lot of research I have concluded that all these lodges offer similar facilities and similar service, all pretty good.

But have you checked the Wasai tambopata website? They have a "special" advertized that looks good. I had already paid Refugio Amazonas or I would have taken Wasai.

I do not know them personally, but Inkaterra only offers top of the line services and hotels.

Thank you. Yes, I have checked out Wasai and saw that special. The problem with that for me is I can only handle water travel in small doses -- so a three/four hour boat ride isn't going to work for me. So that does limit where I'll be able to stay. I certainly want to experience one of these lodges and do some river travel, but not for THAT long.

Thank you so much for your input!
