DAY 1. Puerto Maldonado and Tambopata National Park


Pick up from the airport and transfer to the Amazon Eco Lodge.
The tour begins with a three-and-a-half-hour motorboat trip up the Tambopata River (box lunch on board).

Upon arrival at the Tambopata Eco Lodge, refreshing tropical fruit beverages await us, to quench your thirst.

The excursion begins with a walk in the Amazon rainforest. Here, we discover an infinite number of butterflies and an incredibly wide range of plant life. This will also be an opportunity to spot capybaras, turtles, caimans, and countless numbers of birds.

Before dinner, we go for a nocturnal walk to observe life in the Amazon jungle at night!

Dinner and overnight at the Tambopata Eco Lodge (full board included).

Day 2. “Chuncho” Macaw Clay Lick


After a light, early breakfast, we set off to the Macaw Clay Lick, “El Chuncho,” in the Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. Along the way, we experience the awakening of the jungle, as well as the picturesque landscapes of the Tambopata’s riverbanks.
Upon arrival at the clay lick, we are greeted by the greatest wildlife spectacle that the Tambopata National Park has to offer: hundreds of parrots and macaws eating clay from the cliff. (Parrots and other birds routinely eat clay and gravel to help them digest their food.)
This is, indeed, the highlight of the tour—a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Afterwards, we head back to the lodge for a typical breakfast.

Later in the day, it’s time to experience Cascadas del Gato (the Cat Cascades), a natural hot springs. The cascades are the perfect place to swim and relax. Also, during the course of the day, for those who wish to participate, we offer kayaking, fishing, and zip-lining or tree climbing*.

After lunch, we enjoy another walk out and about the lodge. Our guide will explain how to recognize and find trees and plants of medicinal importance in the area.
And later, a nocturnal caiman search is sure to enliven your evening!

Dinner and overnight at the Tambopata Eco Lodge (full board included).

DAY 3. Sandoval Lake Tour


After breakfast, we embark by motorboat to Puerto Maldonado, where lunch will be served at the Tambopata Eco Lodge.

After lunch, we enjoy a thirty-minute ride up the Madre de Dios River to Sandoval Lake.

Once we arrive, we board a canoe to more slowly and serenely paddle around the lake.
On Sandoval Lake, we observe kingfishers, herons, hoatzins, monkeys, and—with a bit of luck—the giant otters which call Sandoval Lake home. Later, we venture back to our motorboat and enjoy the sunset during our return trip on the Madre de Dios River.

Dinner and overnight at the Puerto Maldonado Eco Lodge (full board included).
