Where to stay in Puerto Maldonado

Puerto Maldonado offers an ever-growing number of options for active jungle explorers and those with a hankering for something a little more exclusive. Budget-conscious adventurers can find a suitable place to rest at one of the simpler hotels or hostels in the downtown area. Eco-lodges represent perhaps the trendiest choice in the jungle--these are designed to bring the wilderness indoors, and make as small a mark on the landscape as possible. Resort-style hotels, with loads of facilities and services, generally remains clustered close to the rivers.
