01: MONKEY ISLAND
You arrive at Puerto Maldonado, the biodiversity capital of Peru.
After a reception at the airport, you will ride to the city center
by bus. You will depart from the port and travel down the Madre
de Dios River. During the trip you will see caimans, turtles, herons
and other species of animals along the riverbanks.
When you arrive to the ECOAMAZONIA LODGE, you will be served an
exquisite welcome drink, after which you will have time to settle
in to your bungalows and eat lunch.
In the afternoon, with our specialized guide, you will visit Monkey
Island, which is only 5 minutes from the Lodge. During your hike
through the island you will observe extraordinary scenery and exuberant
flora that shelters a tremendous variety of monkeys in their natural
habitat, such as the Black Spider Monkey, Capuchin Monkey, Tamarins,
Squirrel Monkeys, and the South American Coati, as well as a number
of bird species. You will complete your visit to Monkey Island by
enjoying the sunset, and then returning to the Lodge for dinner.
02: LAKE APU VICTOR
You will wake up to the beautiful songs of birds, and after breakfast
you will begin your hike into the depths of the Amazon Rainforest
via specially prepared trails and bridges. During the walk you will
see the Cave of the Caimans. Continuing on, you will arrive at the
majestic Lake Apu Victor – a lake of crystalline waters surrounded
by immense swamps and gigantic trees. Later on you will climb to
the top of our Amazon Watch Tower, where you can enjoy the panorama
of the lake and the multitude of birds and animals – parrots,
macaws, toucans, horned screamers, hoatzins, and herons, as well
as other animals such as caimans and turtles. If you’re lucky
the giant otter will make a rare appearance. In the afternoon, you
