Transfer Airport to Puerto Maldonado Headquarters
Upon arrival from Lima or Cusco, you will be welcomed at the airport and driven ten minutes to the Puerto Maldonado headquarters. While enjoying your first taste of the forest in the gardens you will be asked to pack only the necessary gear for your next few days and leave the rest in our secured storage area as this helps us keep the boats and cargo light.
Transfer Puerto Maldonado Headquarters to Tambopata River Port
Boat Transfer – Tambopata River Port to Refugio Amazonas
The two and a half hour boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Refugio Amazonas will take you past the Community of Infierno, and the Tambopata National Reserve’s checkpoint and into the buffer zone of this 1.3 million hectare conservation area.
Upon arrival, the lodge manager will welcome you and brief you with important safety and security tips.
After dinner, you will venture out to the river’s edge scanning the shores with headlamps and flashlights to catch the red gleams of reflection from the caiman’s eyes.
