For a limited time only
Posada Amazonas Lodge is owned by the indigenous Ese Eja community of Infierno and managed in partnership with Rainforest Expeditions. The lodge itself is located within the Ese Eja’s communal reserve, next to Tambopata National Reserve. Many of the staff that work at the lodge are members of the community – and they have been working to create authentic, immersive experiences for our guests.
Recently, we’ve launched the Ese Eja Day – which provides guests with a half day experience in the community, lead by community members. The price per person is $75, but for a limited time, we are offering it on a complimentary basis to any guest that books a suite room at Posada Amazonas. The experience will be offered to all guests staying in the suite.
What is the Ese Eja Experience?
Guests, lead by their guide, will visit the Infierno Community. During their time in the community, they will be able to experience a diverse set of activities, such as:
- The Heritage House – showcasing the story of the Ese eja Nation with antique photos and clothing, ancient ceramics and instruments, as well as working tools. Also, contemporary handcrafts will be on display, and how-to demonstrations will be offered at the adjacent Handcraft Center.
- Catch and release fishing –Guests will visit the fish farm project and will learn about this important sustainable activity while they enjoy first-hand traditional fishing methods. If desired, our local staff will cook up the fish for lunch, otherwise, fish is released back into the pool.
- Boat ride – In the same fish pool, fiber glass boats are available for rides; guests are able to row their own boats or community members can row for them. Our staff, including a lifeguard, will be supervising the activity.
- Lunch time Ese eja style – Catch of the day will be the main menu. A vegetarian option will be available.
