Here are some other options that will suit your needs
We spent 3 days here on a very memorable trip to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Pierina dealt with our booking incredibly well and everything was very smooth with the collection and our requests. Our amazing guide Jarinson (Harry) who was with us from our arrival in to Maldonado was incredible. All the staff were amazing a special call out though to Luis the barman and to Gabriel the resident biologist who runs the research work. We were blessed to see a Jaguar swim the river which was one of many incredible highlights. This place is as remote as you can get in Tambopata and having experienced other lodges and parts of the Amazon I can safely say this experience is by far the best.
