What to Wear In Puerto Maldonado.

Is is ok to wear long yoga pants for hiking in the rainforest in Puerto Maldonado as opposed to lightweight cotton hiking pants? I am going to a travel lodge in the Amazon for a week in August and I'm trying to figure out if its really necessary to buy cargo/hiking pants, or if spandex/nylon yoga pants and leggings will suffice.

Do you have to wear walking boots? My other half doesn't own a pair and we are only in the g lodge for two nights.

I would say you would be fine in leggings/yoga pants. In the jungle I didn't bother with proper hiking trousers. The lodge I was in (Ecoamazonia) also lent out wellington boots if you didn't have suitable shoes (this was in the rainy season though), I think it would be ok with strong trainers. Have a great time!
