Our trip includes picking you up from the airport. Here you will find more information:
Step One: By Air
To get to the Tambopata National Reserve and most of the areas jungle lodges, you first need to go to Puerto Maldonado. Puerto Maldonado is the gateway city to the reserve, and the capital of the Madre de Dios state. There are daily incoming flights to Puerto Maldonado. These flights arrive from Lima or Cuzco in Peru, at least three times a day.
The flights from Lima depart from the Jorge Chavez Airport Domestic Flight Terminal. The trip takes about three hours, and most of these flights stop in Cuzco before continuing on to Puerto Maldonado. Flights from Cuzco depart from the domestic terminal of the Velasco Astete Airport, and the trip takes around 45 minutes.
Step Two: By Land
Once you arrive in Puerto Maldonado, Rainforest Expeditions, and most other lodge and tour companies, will be waiting for you at the airport’s Arrivals Terminal. From there, you hop on a bus for a quick stop to the company’s office, before continuing on to the river port.
Step Three: By Water
Once at the port, you’ll board boats — comfortable motorized canoes called botes — to continue to the lodges along the river where your lodge is located. In our case, all our lodges are located along the Tambopata River. Most lodges are one to four hours away by boat from the port in these river, while in the Madre de Dios, you can find lodges very close to the city from around 15 to 20 minutes away the river port.
Boat schedules are designed to meet your flights, but you shouldn’t arrive after 13:30 (1:30 p.m.) because then you might have to travel by boat in the dark to get to your lodge. Keep in mind, there are legal basis of river transportation where lodges have a limit hour to navigate in the river for travelers safety.
Boat rides are great, and are actually a favorite activity for many travelers. On the beautiful, pleasantly breezy ride, you’ll probably see Capybara and Caiman — and with lots of luck, even a Jaguar!
A travel-insurance policy to cover theft, loss, adventure sports and medical problems is a very good idea. Some policies specifically exclude dangerous activities, so check carefully to make sure you're covered for all your activities of choice.

One of the most frequently asked questions by people who are planning a trip to Peru is when they should visit Tambopata. They wonder if weather and/or animal sightings vary by time of year or if there are other factors to take into consideration. Although it would be easy to say that it’s worth it to experience the exciting Amazonian rainforests of Tambopata at any time of the year. have two seasons,The Wet seasons and Dry season.
Although it can rain at any time of the year, the Tambopata region tends to be drier from May until October. The rains start up in earnest in November and continue until April with therainiest months usually being November and December. Upsides to visiting during the dry season are trails that aren’t as muddy, little chance of activities being affected by rain, and more macaws and parrots on the clay licks. Downsides to visiting during the dry season are hotter weather, less bird activity on sunny days, more difficulty in finding amphibians, and more travel time on rivers due to low water levels.
In all honesty, no month is particularly better to see animals than any other. While more parrots and macaws tend to visit the clay lick during the dry season, other animals are encountered with the same frequency no matter what the time of the year. A much bigger factor that comes into play for seeing Amazonian wildlife is the guide’s level of experience and training.
If you visit lodges such as the Tambopata Research Center, Refugio Amazonas, or Posada Amazonas, you have a very good chance of seeing several monkey species throughout the year. The rollicking calls of Dusky Titis echo from vine tangles, Red Howler Monkeys call from the canopy, and troops of Squirrel Monkeys roam through second growth near oxbow lakes. Black Spider Monkeys may be a bit easier to find during the wet season because it’s usually easier to locate the fruiting trees they feed on but a good guide will increase your chances of seeing them no matter what the time of the year.
