Transfer to your jungle eco-lodge and take a introductory walk in the forest.
Puerto Maldonado pickup & boat to eco-lodge (L/D)
Welcome and reception at the airport or bus terminal. Depending on when you arrive, you might first be transferred to our local office and wait for the rest of the group to arrive before taking the boat transfer (with the purpose of preserving the environment and using less amounts of gasoline). There you'll be able to rest, have a snack, coffee and use wifi internet. Around noon, once the whole group has arrived, you'll transfer to the boat wharf, Port Captain, located 15 min from both the airport and bus terminal. Begin the 1-hour boat ride to your Eco-Lodge while enjoying the wonders of the rainforest. We set off down the Madre de Dios River through the heart of the jungle surrounded by flora, fauna and breathtaking scenery.
Arrive at your Eco-Lodge and settle into your private bungalow. Take a short rest before meeting with your guide followed by an introduction walk around the lodge and its trails. Winding past giant Kapok trees, walking palms and strangler figs while being dazzled by the sounds of native birds. Return to your bungalow for a rest. Before dinner you may choose to take a walk with your guide and experience the jungle as it transforms from day into night making way for nocturnal animals and birds especially adapted for the dark. Return to the dining hall with your guide for your first dinner in the rainforest and enjoy a typical meal from this region. After dinner you may return to your bungalow or meet with other tourist and share your stories and experiences.
