Posada Amazonas Jungle Tour Itinerary

Day 1Puerto Maldonado - Tambopata River - Posada Amazonas

Posada Amazonas Guiding Service

Our guides are biologists, tourism professionals, or community members. We assign guides at 10:1 ratio in Posada Amazonas. This means groups smaller than 10 people will be merged with other groups under one guide. If you would like a private guide or a guide in a language other than English, please let us know.

Transfer Airport to Puerto Maldonado Headquarters

Upon arrival from Lima or Cusco, we will welcome you at the airport and drive you ten minutes to our Puerto Maldonado headquarters. While enjoying your first taste of the forest in our gardens, we will ask you to pack only the necessary gear for the next few days and leave the rest in our safe deposit. This helps us keep the boats and cargo light.

Transfer Pto Maldonado Headquarters to Tambopata River Port

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

Boxed Lunch
Transfer Boat – Tambopata River Port to Posada Amazonas

The forty five minute boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Posada Amazonas will take us into the Community´s primary forest private reserve.

Orientation

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

Canopy Tower

A twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas leads to the 30 meter scaffolding canopy tower. A bannister 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. (Toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon or flocks of mixed species land in the treetop next to you).

Dinner
Ecotourism Lecture

A daily presentation on the Infierno ecotourism project is available every night from a staff member.

Day 2Tres Chimbadas lake - Parrot Clay Lick

Breakfast

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 8 or 9 AM.

Parrot Clay Lick

his clay lick is only a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas. From a blind 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 active at dawn during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.

Lunch
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.

Dinner + Night walk

You will have the option of hiking out at night. Where you get to see frogs with shapes, sounds as bizarre as their natural histories and you see most of the mammals which are active but rarely seen.
