ITINERARY

Your adventure step by step

Day 1: Puerto Maldonado – Posada amazonas

Upon arrival in Puerto Maldonado, you will be welcomed at the airport and driven ten minutes to the Puerto Maldonado headquarters. While enjoying your first taste of the forest in the gardens. We will ask you to pack only the necessary gear for your next few days, and leave the rest at the safe deposit. This helps us keep the boats and cargo light.

Next, we will drive 20 kilometers to the Tambopata River Port, entering the Native Community of Infierno. The port is a communal business. 

Lunch will be served here as a picnic style as we enjoy the views.

After lunch, we will board and take the forty five minute boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Posada Amazonas, taking us into the Community´s Primary Forest Private Reserve. 

Upon arrival at the lodge, the manager will welcome you and brief you with important navigation and security tips.

After you have settled in we will take a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas to the 30 meter scaffolding canopy  tower. A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From atop you obtain spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest cut by the Tambopata River winding through the middle. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon, or mixed species canopy flocks land in the treetop next to you.

Once this tour has concluded, dinner will be served back at the lodge.

Meals: Box lunch and dinner

Accommodation: Posada Amazona Lodging

Day 2: Posada Amazonas – Rainforest

After breakfast we will set off for the ‘Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake’. Tres Chimbadas is thirty minutes by boat and forty five minutes hiking from Posada Amazonas. Once there you will paddle around the lake in a catamaran, searching for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of our lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers. Otters are most active from dawn to eight or nine AM.

After this morning tour we will have lunch. Once we have eaten and relaxed the next tour will be the ‘Ethnobotanical Tour’. A twenty minute boat drive downriver leads you to a trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape. The Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicines out of forest plants and administers them to patients who choose their little clinic. They have produced a trail which explains the different medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants.

We will then return back to the lodging for dinner.

Once you have eaten dinner, you will have the option of hiking out at night, when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. Much easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.

Meals: Full board
Accommodation: Posada Amazona Lodging

Day 3: Posada Amazonas – Rainforest

This morning after breakfast, we will embark on the ‘Parrot clay lick’. This clay lick is only a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas. 

From a lookout located about twenty meters away you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on a river bank. Species such as Mealy and Yellow- headed Amazon, Blue-headed Parrot and Dusky headed Parakeet descend at this clay lick. The clay lick is most active at dawn and during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.

Later, we leave from the lobby at Posada Amazonas and embark on a two hour hike crowned by the largest tree in the vicinity: a giant ceiba tree. During the hike we will focus on the natural history of the rain forest and its principal taxonomic groups. After the hike we will have lunch.

Once we have enjoyed our lunch, we take a thirty minute boat drive downriver to the most complete farm in the community of Infierno. The owner grows a diverse variety of popular and unknown Amazon crops. In his garden, just about every plant and tree serves a purpose. After, we will return to the lodging for dinner.

Meals: Full board
Accommodation: Posada Amazona Lodging

Day 4: Posada Amazonas – Puerto Maldonado – Airport

On your final day you will wake up with breakfast in the lodging. You will then have options to choose for in terms of activities in the morning. This will take up the time until you will need to be transferred to the airport. 

Later you will transfer by boat from Posada Amazonas to Tambopata River Port. Upon arrival in Tambopata River Port you will go to Pto Maldonado Headquarters. 

From the Pto. Maldonado Headquarters  we make our way to the Airport.

We retrace our river and road journey back to Puerto Maldonado, our office and the airport. Depending on airline schedules, this may require dawn departures.
