Day 1: Puerto Maldonado, Peru

Start your jungle adventure with a Puerto Maldonado airport/bus station pick-up, after which you will take a motorized canoe trip down the Madre de Dios River to the Amazon research station you’ll be staying at for the next few days.

During the trip we can see some of the settlers as well as the typical crops of rice, bananas, fish farms and some species of birds typical of the river banks, such as rayadores, sandpipers, crowned herons, jabirúes, hawks, kingfisher, swallows and flycatchers.

After check-in, you will receive a brief introductory talk about our work with the community of La Cachuela in an ecotourism project, the only one of its kind, as well as the general uses of the lodge and trails, before proceeding towards our afternoon activity.

Take an Ethnobotanical walk through the station’s exclusive trails to explore the rainforest ecosystems, where 540 bird species, 362 ant species (world record) and over 100 mammal species have been registered.

Continue with the trail which will lead us to Observation Tower of the forest (canopy) of 30 meters high, enjoy an spectacular view of the sub-canopy and its surroundings.

Wait for the beautiful sunset at the top of the forest, excellent to appreciate the sounds of nature, and to be in contact with it, as the sun goes down, the jungle becomes much more mysterious, it is time for the nocturnal animals like the monkey nocturnal, locally known as musmuqui, insects that will surprise you just by seeing them and much more with hearing them, the famous Tarantulas, nocturnal spiders that are at night that really start their activity.

Return to the lodge to take a shower and so you can taste your delicious dinner.

Day 2: Puerto Maldonado, Peru

After an early breakfast leave for Sandoval Lake, which is within the Tambopata National Reserve, a walk of about an hour takes us to the shore of the lake. From here, a rowing boat will takes us to a silent tour of the lake, to appreciate the lake fauna at its peak of activity.

Look for turtles, riparian birds, the peculiar shanshos, and perhaps even river otters, known as the largest giant freshwater otters in the world. At one time they were extensively hunted for their thin skin, now the best populations are in the Peruvian jungle. Those seen on Lake Sandoval belong to a resident family of seven individuals, and alone otter.

Take a delicious tropical Amazonian lunch (box lunch) and then take a short break to refresh ourselves in the majestic lake, there is a small area designated for the use of this activity to be renewed again for our return walk on time to taste our delicious dinner in our eco-house.

If there was much energy we will have an incredible bonfire, observing the majestic starry night.

Day 3: Puerto Maldonado, Peru

A wake-up call at 4.15am will let you know that we will visit the amazing parrot clay lick “La Cachuela”, which runs for approx. 2 hours.

It is the perfect place for lovers of parrots. Hundreds of them will make their arrival in the early morning to congregate and try to eat the clay which is used by the minerals to detoxify some immature fruit or seed as well as to socialize and search for their partner. It is possible to see up to 7 species of Psithecidae (family of parrots and macaws) during this magical activity.

Take breakfast in the house of a local family, before you take a vehicle back to the city of Puerto Maldonado, and from there to the airport on time for our flight back to Lima or Cusco.
