Wasai Lodge

Lodge in Puerto Maldonado

This lodge is a striking complex of comfortable wooden bungalows overlooking the Río Madre de Dios (and its flash bridge!). Higher tariffs are for air-con. Minibars, hot showers, cable TV and river views, however, are standard. Room lighting is pretty abysmal: consider bringing a flashlight! There is a good ground floor restaurant, room service, a bar and a pool.

The lodge arranges various trips on the region's rivers – usually involving a stay at its well-regarded Wasai Alto Tambopata Lodge.
