After living in Cusco for the last 18 months, we had become quite acclimatized to the heat, so their pool came in handy. The kids opted to swim every day of course and it suited me as the Wi-Fi was totally accessible by the swimming pool so I could catch up on some work while the kids (and dad) frolicked in the water!
The backyard of Anaconda Lodge is home to many animals including a couple of howler monkeys, the agouti, chickens, a myriad of butterflies and even a couple of tarantulas. I kid you not! We had fun investigating the local surrounds and it was a mini adventure every time we left our hut. It is a bird watcher and nature lover's paradise.
The accommodation we had was more than spacious for our needs - we slept downstairs while our ever independent daughter chose to sleep on the top level of our lodge. We opted to stay for 4 nights in Puerto Maldonado but in reality, we could've stayed a lot longer if our schedule permitted just lying by the pool, relaxing in our room and eating the Thai food.
Definitely a thumbs up from all members of our travelling family.
