An unforgettable trip to the Tambopata jungle in Peru!

Trip review

After three months in Cusco – where I´m living at the moment for my internship at AMAUTA Spanish School – I finally made a tour that I really wanted to do since I arrived to Peru: a trip to the Tambopata Rainforest.

From Cusco you can get to Puerto Maldonado, from where all tours start, by plane or by bus. Since I’m on a budget, I took the nigh tbus from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado. It should take about 10 hours, but our bus was delayed and we arrived 3 hours later. Luckily we didn´t even notice because we were sleeping in our comfortable ´cama´ chairs.

One of those very famous Peruvian dishes, next to the typical Peruvian fish-dish called “ Ceviche”, is the so called “ Lomo Saltado”. You will find this on the menu of the mayority, not to say all Peruvian restaurnants (with exception of the vegetarian ones). Lomo Saltado is also a dish people like to prepare at home, for their friends and families. The basic ingredient of this dish are slices of sirloin meat and it is served together with onions, fried potatoes, tomatoes and rice. The slices meat, mostly sirloin meat or beef tenderloin, are being marinated in vinegar, soy sauce and pepper. After this French fries, (red) onions, tomatoes and fresh parsley are added. It’s served with white rice and it’s the favorite dish of many people in Peru.
