• The Posada Amazonas lodge is owned by the local indigenous community of Infierno and is run in partnership with Rainforest Expeditions.
• Local ownership ensures that the community directly benefits from the tourism that takes place in their precious environment. But more importantly, it ensures that they are empowered to shape the kind of tourism they want to see into the future. Since establishing this unique partnership back in 1996, the community has had an integral say through the initial 20-year plan they co-created with Rainforest Expeditions.
• The lodge is powered by solar.
