Upon our arrival, we will be welcomed by the refuge's guides at the airport and taken to the refuge's headquarters in Puerto Maldonado (10 minutes away from the airport). All of the refuge's guides are scientists, tourism practitioners or members of the community. We advise you to take with you only the necessary luggage for your stay. The rest of your luggage can be left in a safe place in our warehouse. We will transfer you from our headquarters in Puerto Maldonado to the port of Tambopata. For this, we will ride along Puerto Maldonado (20-kilometer ride) to the port of embarkation in the indigenous community of Infierno. The port is administered by a community initiative. Then, we will board a boat and navigate for 2:30 hours through Infierno, passing by Tambopata's National Reserve checkpoint and into the buffer zone. The reserve covers an area of more than 1 million hectares. For lunch we will provide you a lunch box. We will be greeted by the manager, who will also give us some advice for our stay. Dinner. We will go out at night and have a boat ride through Tambopata river. We will be scanning the shores with headlamps and flashlights to spot the red gleams of reflection from the caiman eyes. Accommodations for the night at Refugio Amazonas.
We will have a 30-minute hike from Refugio Amazonas to the Canopy Tower (25 meters high - 82 ft). The access to the platforms up high is safe thanks to a banistered stairway. The tower was built on a higher ground, improving the visibility over the horizon of the primary jungle. You will be able to observe different bird species, like toucans, macaws and birds of prey, among others. Breakfast. We will walk for a few minutes from Refugio Amazonas to Bosque Castaña, a beautiful forest of Brazil nut trees. The trees have been harvested for decades. We will notice the precarious remains of a camp used two months a year by the Brazil nut gatherers. We will observe the complete process of production (from collection, through the transportation, to the roasting and shelling). Four and a half hours away from here, right in the heart of the reserve, we will find Tambopata's Research Center. One hour and a half later, we will be arriving at Malinowski river leaving behind all trace of human presence. In the reserve's 700'000 hectares of inhabited land, it will be easier to spot capybaras, caimans, goose, macaws, among other animals. We will provide you a lunch box. We will walk along Tambopata river for about 3 to 5 kilometers. We will admire the incredible view. We will cross a forest formed on the remains of an ancient bamboo forest. This is a good habitat for titi monkeys and howler monkeys. Dinner. Accommodations for the night at Tambopata Research Center.
Throughout the year, when the sky is clear, dozens of macaws and hundreds of parrots gather at this clay river wall, known as "collpa", creating a show of sound and colors. In fact, the collpa inspired a National Geographic front page article. From a discrete location (100 meters away from the cliff), very early in the morning, we will observe the three species of big macaws and many parrot species come lick the clay. Breakfast. We will through the Floodable Forest. This is a 5-kilometer road that covers the prototypical rainforest with huge trees, cliffs and small ponds. Among the fig trees, kapok trees and "shihuahuacos", we will look for squirrel monkeys, large-headed capuchins and spider monkeys, as well as peccaries. Tambopata Research Center is located in this habitat. Lunch. Ten minutes upstream away from the refuge, we will find a small pond with a platform in the center. This is a great place to find aquatic birds (like ducks, herons and hoatzins), woodpeckers, golden orioles, parakeets, among others, that have made this their home. Dinner. We will have the opportunity to do a walk at night, when most of the mammals are active, although difficult to see. It will be easier for us to spot some frogs whose forms and sounds are extravagant, just like their natural histories. Accommodations for the night at Tambopata Research Center.

From a discrete location (100 meters away from the cliff), very early in the morning, we will observe the three species of big macaws and many parrot species come lick the clay. We will have 5-kilometer walk through Terra Firme Forest, where we will find a totally new habitat. This habitat is characterized for having smaller. Walking near the wetlands, we will keep our eyes wide open to find weird paths left by the elusive tapir. Lunch. The wetlands' palms grow over the remains of a lake and bear fruit to animals throughout the year, making them one of the most important feeding sources of the rainforest. The heavy demand for fruit and the good conditions for rice production also make the wetlands one of the most threatened habitats. Dinner. Accommodations for the night at Tambopata Research Center.
Breakfast. We will transfer you from Tambopata Research Center to Tambopata's port. We will go to the headquarters in Puerto Maldonado for a short time and then transfer you to the airport.
