Itinerary

Day 1

We arrive in Puerto Maldonado, Peru's capital of biodiversity. Following pickup at the airport, our trip begins with a tour of the city by bus. We continue to Capitanía, a small river port, where we'll board a motorized boat to cross the Madre de Dios River. Upon arrival at the Lodge, we enjoy an exquisite welcome drink. Then, we settle into our bungalows and have lunch.

Cocha Caiman

After lunch, we will be visiting an interpretive trail conveniently signposted to the Cocha Caiman, a small lake with an abundant presence of specimens of black caiman (Melanosuchus niger) and spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus) guide. We watch the beautiful sunset in the Amazon and return to the lodge. In the evening, dinner is served.

Day 2

The Lost Cocha

After breakfast, we begin an adventure through the virgin forest, accompanied by our local guide as we explore deep into the jungle and reach the Lost Cocha (La Cocha Perdida). The Lost Cocha is a refuge and feeding ecosystem for a tremendous diversity of animals. This unique area, as it belongs to the Ecoamazonia Reserve, remains utterly intact, with large marshes and natural springs. We ascend to an extraordinary vantage point, from which we have a chance to observe the magical jungle, followed by a pleasant canoe ride around the lake. We return to the lodge for lunch and in the afternoon, we offer an optional visit to the Monkey Island. If you'd rather relax, you can enjoy the Amazonian Pool and dinner.

Day 3

Breakfast and transfer to Puerto Maldonado's airport.
