Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción

Just a 25-minute canoe ride from Puerto Maldonado, Hacienda Concepción provides quick and easy access to the rainforest and all its wonders through a wide range of tours led by experienced specialist guides.

This lodge, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, is in a 380-hectare private rainforest reserve in the buffer zone between Tambopata National Reserve and the Madre de Dios river.  Over the years the estate was used as a cacao and rubber plantation and a Catholic medical mission centre.

Today, the main house reflects indigenous architecture with extensive use of timber and thatch, raised on stilts high above the jungle floor. Fill your days exploring the rainforest with walks, boat and canoe rides, marvelling at the rich flora and fauna and enjoying the insights of an experienced guide.

There are also opportunities to view the rainforest from a canopy walkway, visit a farm to see ecological techniques, walk to a mammal clay lick, witness cocoa cultivation and chocolate production, learn about the medicinal uses of plants and sip sundowners by the river.

The Eco-centre provides comprehensive information about all the tours, lodge projects and wildlife. Rooms are comfy with hot water showers, and the larger cabañas are on elevated decks in the forest. The main house, or casa grande, has a dining room and bar, for buffet breakfasts, lunches and à la carte dinners. The upper level is a lounge for relaxing, mixing with other guests and gazing out on the rainforest.
