The journey to this five-star jungle retreat for couples who want to get back to nature without roughing it, is by boat from the town of Puerto Maldonado, down the Madre de Dios River, a tributary of the Amazon. This is an adventure in itself, filled with the promise of piranhas and crocodiles, and the thrills continue after you've settled in.

Expert guides lead a range of wildlife-focused tours, from jungle hikes to canoe trips, in the pristine Tambopata National Park. The essential excursion is a trip downriver to Inkaterra's own eco-reserve, the site of arguably the best canopy walkway in the Amazon. Crossing the seven bridges suspended nearly 30m above the forest floor requires a head for heights, but the reward is an eye-level encounter with toucans, monkeys and sloths.

WOW FACTOR Channel your wild side and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the jungle with a night in a treehouse, suspended in the rainforest canopy; your own private butler on standby.
