The Maniti Eco-lodge is located in Iquitos, Peru, a city in the northern Amazon. It is carefully designed to provide comfort for travelers as well as preserve the surrounding rainforest. The private bungalows are built entirely with recycled rainforest materials that blend in with the jungle landscape, so much so that you can simply miss it! The lodge has a decidedly rustic atmosphere: no internet, limited electricity (6-9pm) and no air conditioning, but you don't head into the middle of the Amazon jungle for these amenities, you do it for your experience and escape.

Approximately 70% of tourists visit Peru in winter. Why? It is winter here that is a kind of "velvet season" when the most comfortable average daily air temperature is kept - about + 20 ° C. In addition, during this period the country celebrates a large number of spectacular holidays and festivals, and finally, winter is the most favorable period for visiting the main Peruvian "star" - the ancient city of Machu Picchu.

Peru is distinguished by a huge variety of climatic conditions (out of 32 types of climate on the planet, there are 28 here!) and ecosystems. In addition, there are 3 different climatic zones in the country: Costa, Sierra and Selva.
In all these zones, the weather conditions in winter differ significantly from each other. In the western regions, a tropical desert type of climate prevails, in the east it is subequatorial, and in mountainous regions climatic conditions are influenced by the height of the terrain.
Costa: coastline, 10.5% - a strip of sandy deserts (80 - 150 km wide), running along the entire coast of the Pacific Ocean. Due to the cold Peruvian Current passing off the coast, the Costa's climate is characterized by aridity. In winter (June - August) during the day the air temperature warms up to + 19 ° C, respectively, at night it drops to + 13 ° C.
Almost all major tourist cities, as well as the famous Nazca Plateau, are located in this area.
Sierra: mountainous region, 31.5% - a zone in the central region of the country, vast high-mountain plateaus and steep canyons. The further east you go to the mountains, the more the temperature drops. In the period June-August, the average daytime temperature is + 16-18 ° C, at night - from +6 to -2 ° C. The period April-October is the dry season, the rest of the time there is a lot of rainfall.
The local popular tourist route is the mysterious Lake Titicaca (g. Puno), in addition, a must-see destination for all tourists visiting the country is the famous Sacred Valley of Urubamba, whose crown is the "city of the sun" Machu Picchu.

Selva: jungle, 58% - wet forest area in the north-east of the country. Selva is always humid and hot. In winter, the air warms up to + 30 ° C during the day, and drops to + 20 ° C at night.
The interest of travelers in this area is represented by many National Parks, such as Otisi, Manu, Madre de Dios, Bauaja, Sierra del Divisor, etc.
What do you know about camping? Surely everyone will answer - yes everything! But no. Not so long ago, a new trend appeared in the tourism business - glamping. Or glamorous camping. It doesn't go well, you say, but what about romance, mosquitoes, and everything else. This is also there, only behind the thick walls of a cozy house.
Glamping sites are most often indoor safari parks, where vacationers are offered a mixture of "wildlife" and urban comfort. Here, of course, you can sit on the bank of the river and go fishing, but you will not cook food on a fire, but in your home kitchen with all the conveniences. Interesting fact! Variations of glamorous settlements for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts can be very different. These can be cozy dwellings on the crown of a tree, or in snowy Alaska.
Glamping or luxury camping is a pretty broad concept. Most often, the location of such zones is "tied" to the unique nature. It can be a sparsely populated nature reserve, or a hard-to-reach gorge. Dunes in the distance, perhaps. Although here you will be provided with satellite Internet and provided with communication.
Despite all the glamor of the phenomenon, the history of the emergence of such an idea goes back to the Middle Ages. When the ruling monarchs took with them half of the castles to sit on a picnic. That is why the most common glamping option is the pre-fabricated hipped roof.
Glamping is not just an oasis in the desert. These are mobile tents that can be assembled and disassembled in a short time. In addition, camp organizers are obliged to follow environmental legislation and not violate the ecology of the area.
Glamp, or glamping camps, can be found literally all over the world: in Afirka, Kazakhstan, Alaska, Karelia, Lapland, Mongolia and Peru. Such settlements are very popular in the famous national parks of the planet.
Let's talk about the most famous glamping locations. The most unique and popular glam camps are:
