Day 2: Amazon Jungle, Peru

Welcome and reception at the airport or bus terminal.

Depending on when you arrive, you might first be transferred to our local office and wait for the rest of the group to arrive before taking the boat transfer (with the purpose of preserving the environment and using less amounts of gasoline). There you’ll be able to rest, have a snack, coffee and use Wi-Fi internet.

Around noon, once the whole group has arrived, you’ll transfer to the boat wharf, Port Captain, located 15 min from both the airport and bus terminal. Begin the 1-hour boat ride to your Eco-Lodge while enjoying the wonders of the rainforest. We set off down the Madre de Dios River through the heart of the jungle surrounded by flora, fauna and breath-taking scenery.

Catch a glimpse of flying Macaws, parrots, Toucans or the infamous Harpy eagle; the views from this platform are truly unforgettable!

Continue into the reserve until we reach the animal rescue centre where you will encounter many different wild animals including a jaguar, puma, toucans, macaws, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguarondi, bush dog, tapirs and more.
