This was one of the best experiences we had in Peru. Loooved it.
Inotawa lodge was located nicely in the jungle and provided a good & unique experience of a "primitive" lodge stay. There was not much mosquitos as feared and even though the weather was cold, the bedding was comfortable. The toilets were clean & adequate. The lodge surroundings were excellent and we could see many wildlife including feeding some small monkeys and taking many pictures. Access to the river & boat was good. The food in the lodge was also good, especially many vegetarian options and also had good, clean drinking water. The staff were friendly and helped us with our requests.
Fantastic lodge in the jungle. Great balance of comfort and contact with nature
