Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Puerto Maldonado - Eco-Amazonia Lodge - Monkey Island

Arrival in Puerto Maldonado, Peru’s capital of biodiversity. Following pickup at the airport, our trip begins with a tour of the city by private bus.

We’ll continue to Capitanía, a small river port, where we’ll board a motorized boat to cross the Madre de Dios River. As the trip progresses, we’ll become immersed in the natural surroundings of the jungle while observing the ronsoco, caimans, turtles, herons, cormorants and other animal species.

We’ll arrive at the Ecoamazonia Lodge and enjoy an exquisite welcome drink. Then, we’ll settle into our bungalows and have lunch.

In the afternoon, accompanied by our specialized guide, we’ll visit Monkey Island, a unique place at the heart of the Madres de Dios River – just 5 minutes from the lodge. Along the way, we’ll take in the extraordinary landscapes that are home to a variety of monkey species and exuberant flora. These monkey species include maquisapas, capuchins, lion monkeys, puffins and cotos, along with other animal species like the coati, sloth, and a great diversity of birds. We’ll complete our visit of the island while enjoying the sunset – the most impressive moment of any day in the jungle. Then, we’ll return to the lodge to end the day with a pleasant dinner.

Day 2
Lake Apu Victor

We’ll wake up to the delightful song of birds in the surrounding canopy. After breakfast, we’ll start our excursion with a walk deep into the jungle, making our way along specially prepared paths and canyon bridges. During our walk, we’ll see Caimans’ Cave, and as we continue along, we’ll arrive at majestic Lake Apu Victor, with its crystal clear waters, surrounding jungle marshes, and giant tree species. Further along the way, we’ll ascend to an observation point that opens up a spectacular panorama over the lake. We’ll observe parrots, guacamayos (aras), tucans, camungo, shanshos, herons and other animals such as caimans, turtles. If we’re lucky, we may even glimpse the giant otter, the jungle’s most impressive animal. After several hours, we’ll return to the lodge to enjoy lunch and afternoon free time and dinner.
