THE AMAZON

Enjoy adventurous luxury in eco-lodges situated in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon.

Just a short distance from Cusco, and in complete contrast to the rugged mountain terrain, lies the small city of Puerto Maldonado. Located in the Amazon basin, this is the starting point for an exciting journey into the rainforest. Peru is covered by rainforest, and next to Brazil, it has the largest portion of the Amazon, which is split over 9 countries in total. Puerto Maldonardo is exceptionally easy to access, with regular connecting flights from Cusco, which take just 1 hour. With both Manu National Park and the Tambopata National Reserve nearby, there is an abundance of wildlife that can be observed, including parrots at clay licks, giant river otters, howler monkeys, sloths, ocelot and many hundreds of species of amphibian, reptile and insect. The large oxbow lakes, and tiny jungle waterways provide a habitat perfect for an enormous array of wildlife. In the Peruvian Amazon, small communities welcome guests to observe their way of life and learn how they have adapted to coexist with the modern world. Visitors to the communities can learn about what plants are traditionally used for medicinal purposes, try piranha fishing and watch typical food being prepared. The accommodation options in the Peruvian Amazon are exceedingly good – with many luxury eco-lodges and small cruises available, which are perfect for a luxury holiday to experience this remarkable habitat.
