Sustainable, eco-friendly luxury in one of Peru’s remotest regions? Yes, it is possible, and the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica shows how. Hidden in the heart of a 42,000-acre ecological park some 45 minutes by boat from Puerto Maldonado, this peaceful rainforest retreat is committed not only to pampering its guests, but to providing jobs to locals, funding research, and fostering conservation in the all-important resource that is the Amazon.
At Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, the magic is in the details: the thatched roofs, the riverbank staircase, the friendly local porters, the glass of tropical juice that awaits you when you arrive. Choose from 35 separate cabañas, all with high ceilings, screened decks, and comfortable hammocks, or spend the night in treetop seclusion in the Canopy Tree House, 90 feet off the jungle floor. Whatever lodging you select, Inkaterra’s riverside spa, canopy walkways, and hanging bridges guarantee an exotic and unforgettable adventure.
