If you've ever spent much time in the rainforest, you know that the best place to sleep is in an elevated place, because snakes, insects and anything else that can bite you are on the forest floor. So there's really no better place to sleep than in a tree house. For a truly luxurious night in the treetops, the Canopy Tree House Suite at the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is perched 90 feet (27.43 meters) above the jungle floor, and it's just about the most deluxe lodging offered in the Peruvian rainforest. The tree house is accessed via a network of rope bridges, and a dedicated butler serves you meals on a private balcony. It sounds like the ideal place to kick back and do a little bird watching. Dinner and breakfast are included with the $300 per night rate, and guests are required to stay for a minimum of three nights [source: Hotel Chatter].
