Travel Tales: Puerto Maldonado, Peru
While studying abroad in the Amazon Rainforest of Puerto Maldonado, Peru, I called Posada Amazonas home for four days. This tropical rainforest lodge was completely open to the surrounding ecosystem, which allowed guests to become one with the wildlife and natural wonders of the Amazon. As you can see from the photo above, our bedrooms also exposed us to the lovely oasis during our down time. My stay in Puerto Maldonado included daytime and nighttime hikes throughout the rainforest, trips to the local medicine garden, and a climb up the 120 ft. canopy tower that overlooked the Amazon. If you are a person that loves adventure and nature, I would highly recommend travelling to Puerto Maldonado, Peru!
Below are additional pictures of the communal spaces at the lodge, as well as pictures of the 120 ft. canopy tower that I mentioned above.
