Day 1: Puerto Maldonado Pickup – Transfer to Eco-Lodge (L,D) Welcome and reception at the airport or bus terminal.

Around noon, once the whole group has arrived, you'll transfer to the boat wharf, Port Captain.
Begin the 1-hour boat ride to your eco-lodge while enjoying the wonders of the rainforest. Set off down the Madre de Dios River through the heart of the jungle surrounded by plants, animals, and breathtaking scenery.
Arrive at your eco-lodge and settle into your private bungalow. Take a short rest before a guided walk around the lodge and its trails. Before dinner, you may take a walk with your guide and experience the jungle as it transforms from day into night making way for nocturnal animals. Then, go to the dinning hall for your first dinner in the rainforest and enjoy a typical meal from this region.
Day 2: Jungle Walk – Taricaya Reserve (B, L, D) Have breakfast between 7am and 8am, and then begin your adventure walking on the trails surrounded by huge trees. You will arrive at the first platforms located 50 and 80 feet (15 and 25 meters) high, accessed by a suspension bridge, and explore the amazing structure of the trees and the wildlife that live in and around them.
Continue your walk into the Taricaya reserve towards the Canopy platform, the highest tree platform in the Amazon rainforest located about 150 feet (45 m) high. Catch a glimpse of flying macaws, parrots, toucans, or the infamous harpy eagle; the views from this platform are truly unforgettable.
Continue into the reserve to reach the animal rescue center, where you will encounter many different wild animals including jaguars, pumas, toucans, macaws, monkeys, jaguarondi, bush dog, tapirs, and more. Visit the butterfly house before returning to the lodge for lunch. Take a walk to the agro-forestry farm and visit the taricaya turtle project and its artificial beaches. Return to the lodge in your own inflatable boat with a beautiful backdrop of the sunset over the river. Rest before finishing the day with a caiman search along the river's edge in a motorboat by moonlight. End with dinner.
Day 3: Puerto Maldonado Departure (B) Enjoy an early breakfast at your lodge before your 8am departure and scenic return boat trip on the Madre de Dios River, bringing you back to Puerto Maldonado around 9:30am. Depending on your return flight/bus, you can be taken directly to the airport/bus station, or dropped off at the office where you can rest, refresh yourself, and use the Wi-Fi.
