My 3 adult children and I had a fabulous time at the Explorers Inn March 20-24. Our guide, Christian, was extremely knowledgeable, generous with his knowledge, and very helpful in all ways. When my boots from home made a long walk through the jungle mud almost impossible because of their sleek soles, Christian gently guided me and supported me on...

An outstanding place to get away from it all. And remember you are already in the Tambopata region of Peru, near the Bolivian border, far away from your iPhone's 3G network coverage. 2.5 hours upstream by long boat from Puerto Inferno. Rustic lodges with the basic conveniences. More than what you for this kind of experience. There are plenty of...

We approached our stay with eyes wide open given we were going to be in the jungle not in Miami Beach .

I have been traveling and I know what rustic can look like. But this Inn was lacking a lot. There were no comfort anywhere . Even the beds and chairs were uncomfortable.

This place is run (and very efficiently, I might add!) by a group of 20-something, local, men. These guys grew up in or around the town of Puerto Maldonado and know a lot about the landscape, flora and fauna, and the culture. The Inn itself is rustic and remote--perfect for spending time in the Amazon. Even during a rare cold...

Firstly, you need to be aware that this trip (we went in March/April) is EXTREMELY STINKING hot and EXTREMELY humid and EXTREMELY muddy. It is not in any way luxurious. It is located in the middle of the jungle with no electricity and no hot water. It is pretty basic accommodation, but the food, food-related service are very good and...

We did a 4 day/3 night trip and really enjoyed ourselves. The hikes were great and we saw lots of wildlife. The food was amazing and the cabin we had was more than adequate.

We stayed at Explorer's Inn for a 4 nights/5days package. We enjoyed our time there and especially the guided walks. For the price, compared to many other places, this was a good deal (we got some discount negotiated with their Lima office). The rooms and public areas are kept clean, food is ok and staff attitude is friendly and helpful....

Visit us and wake to the roars of howler monkeys and the numerous melodies of the resident caciques that nest in the palms beside the bungalows.

“All of the accomodation is basic but adequate with no electric light etc. Power is reserved for the main meeting, eating and kitchen areas as well as the admin offices. That is, however, clear when you book so should not be a suprise.”
