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.

Experience the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

(trip review Inca Trail)

Inca Trail Days 1 and 2

I had always dreamed of hiking the Inca Trail in Peru — and when I arrived in Cusco to study Spanish in Cusco at AMAUTA Spanish School, I was lucky enough to get hooked up with a group of students who were in the midst of booking the trek with the in-house travel agency (Dos Manos Peru Travel). Fortunately, I was still able to join, there were still a few Inca Trail Permits left! For me, this was a dream come true!   I was truly going to Experience the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu! I was so excited.

We met with our guide, Simon, for a pre-trek briefing 2 days prior to departure, and he gave us a complete run-down of what we would experience during the entire four day adventure on our way to Machu Picchu. After listening to and chatting with Simon, I felt excited, confident, and exceptionally prepared for what was to come!
