DAY 01: Puerto Maldonado – Explorer’s Inn
Reception at the airport, transfer to our offices and then to the port to embark on a boat with an outboard motor, and travel across the Tambopata River for approximately 3 hours. If the weather allows it, we will go by bus to a native community where we will embark on a boat for just a 1 hour 30 minute-long trip approximately. On the way we will be able to appreciate caimans, turtles, aquatic birds, etc., and will have a cold snack.
We will be greeted with a welcoming cocktail at our arrival in the Explorer’s Inn. After a short rest we will set off on a short hike to a small lagoon, from where we will continue towards Sunset Point on time to watch an unforgettable sunset in the forest. At dusk we will board once again the boat and watch the caimans in the river with the help of torches. Once back at the inn we will have supper in the company of the resident naturalists, who will be at our disposition to absolve any question regarding the Amazon forest and the Tambopata Reserved Zone.
DAY 02: Explorer’s Inn
Early in the morning we will have breakfast and set out led by a resident naturalist on a 5 and a half-kilometre long hike up to the Cocococha Lagoon; on the way we will have the chance of watching exotic plants and insects, butterflies and multicoloured birds, monkeys and, with a little luck, also some major mammals. At the lagoon we will have canoes at our disposition for a short tour to watch the rich and varied wild fauna on its shores. Back at the inn we will have lunch perhaps rather late and will have the afternoon free to rest or enjoy some independent activity.
DAY 03: Explorer’s Inn – Puerto Maldonado
We will have breakfast before dawn to then embark on our trip back to the city and enjoy an unforgettable sunrise in the forest; once in the City of Puerto Maldonado, we will be transferred to the airport in order to board our departing flight.
