INOTAWA started its operations of eco- tourism in the Tambopata national reserve (RTAMB) in 1998 by visiting the sites that can be found at the margins of the Tambopata River. These are Tres Chimbadas Lake, the La Torre Lakes, Cocococha lake, La Torre parrot clay lick, Chuncho and Colorado clay licks and El Gato creek.
In order to offer comfort to our guests during their visits we constructed inotawa lodge situated in the sector La Torre in the buffer zone of the Tambopata national reserve and surrounded by an area of private conservation (ACP) with pristine forest and natural bamboo patches that host a large variety of birds, mammals, insects and reptiles.
Inotawa lodge is constructed with traditional materials of the Amazon. Palm leaf thatching, timber and bamboo maintain an architecture that blends in perfectly with the surrounding nature and the gardens full of medicinal and ornamental plants.
The infrastructure consists of 16 rooms with private bathroom, a dining area, a bar, a hammock area, a web of trails, kayaks and bicycles. In short, everything necessary to offer safe, high quality service to our tourists with social and environmental responsibility.
INOTAWA is a family business run by naturalists that also develop projects with the inhabitants of the “La Torre” sector. We think this to be the best manner to give a sustainable use to the area.
INOTAWA finances, supports and advises the rural tourism project “association of inhabitants of La Torre for sustainable use and eco- tourism of the Tambopata” (AMTUSET).
This association joins the inhabitants of La Torre willing to dedicate to eco- tourism and conservation. At the moment AMTUSET manages a concession of 340 has.
INOTAWA has agreements with different educational institutions of the region such as the UNAMAD (National Amazonian University of Madre de Dios) and CETPRO (Center for productive technical education Dionisia Herrera Alvarado) supporting national and international investigators and students in the fields of forest inventories, fauna censuses, analysis of tourist attractions, hotel management and visitor capacities.
