Eco-lodges are one of the most popular forms of accommodation among those wanting to travel to the Amazon basin. When planning a holiday in South America, lodges are the perfect way to get everything you want out of your stay, and so much more.
To help make your decision easier, it is important to be aware of the different factors that contribute to a good eco-lodge. This can ensure that your vacation is as amazing as you dreamed it would be, and that the lodge you choose is right for you.
One essential aspect of choosing a good lodge is making sure that you pick the best location for your stay. Your eco-lodge’s location can be a huge determining factor in the quality of your holiday experience, because you almost certainly decided to visit the Amazon to explore nature, not to spend all your time in the lodge facilities!
There are many different lodges in Peru, with each location offering something different. For instance, there are lodges located near population centers in secondary, disturbed forest, that offer hotel-style comforts and adventure activities. Or, there are lodges like our own Tambopata Ecolodge, where we offer the chance to stay in comfortable, cabin-style rooms, and to eat well and enjoy a hot shower, but also to be surrounded by remote, untouched Amazon rainforest, where there is every chance of seeing abundant fauna, in the company of our expert naturalist guides.
At Tambopata Ecolodge, we believe that the best eco-lodge experience is tailored to our guest’s expectations for their ecotourism vacation. We offer comfort, yes, as well as the chance to see animals and learn about rainforest flora, but we also strive to do so without being harmful to the environment. This means that, together with us, our guests are contributing towards a better planet, as well as enjoying a wonderful holiday experience!
What better way could there be to define ‘good’ than an eco-lodge that helps protect the environment? At Tambopata Ecolodge, our reasons for existence are to continue to protect the forests that are our responsibility, as custodians of the largest Private Conservation Area in its category in Peru, and to introduce international travelers to the biodiversity and beauty of our rainforest home.
