Welcome to Puerto Maldonado, Peru! If you are flying into Puerto Maldonado International Airport (AKA Padre Aldamiz International Airport) a lodge representative will welcome you at the airport and transfer you to the lodge’s office in town (approximately 15 minutes by van). Here you will pack any items you will need over the next few days into a duffle bag provided by the lodge. The remainder of your belongings will be securely stored in the office. From here, travel by motorised canoe to your lodge. Once you arrive at the lodge there is time to unpack and unwind before an afternoon walk to the Canopy Tower, a 30-meter scaffolding canopy tower that offers spectacular views of the forest and Tambopata River. You will have good chances of spotting toucans, parrots and macaws from here. Head back to the lodge for dinner. After dinner, venture into the jungle for a guided night walk with your guide.
Wake at dawn to the sound of bird calls and travel by boat and foot to the oxbow lake after breakfast. Cruise around the lake and keep an eye out for turtles, hoatzin and other local species of birds. In the afternoon, venture out on a jungle walk, keeping an eye out for wildlife while learning from a local guide about the many resources the Amazon provides, from medicine to construction and food. Head back to the lodge later in the day where you're free to relax.
Rise early this morning and head out after breakfast to visit the Parrot Clay Lick, which is around a 20-minutes walk from the lodge. From an observation spot located about 20 metres away, you should see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on the riverbank. Continue on a hike through the Ceiba Trail to see the largest tree in the vicinity. In the afternoon, visit a working farm in the community of Infierno. Your evening is free to relax and unwind among nature.
Your Peru Jungle Experience ends this morning. After breakfast return to Puerto Maldonado and transfer back to the airport.
