from Puerto Maldonado into the rain forest

the city was named after explorer Faustino Maldonado, who paddled up the Madre de Dios River where it meets Tambopata River. Puerto Maldonado is the gateway to three national parks in the Peruvian Amazon featuring an extraordinary diversity of wild species of flora and fauna.

Of the Amazon forest it's said to be the only place giving one the sensation of witnessing the dawn of time. Visitors are drawn to the diversity of the area's forests and rivers, arriving in the city of Puerto Maldonado, the capital of the department of Madre de Dios, ready to set out on a journey filled with excitement and discovery not only of nature but oneself sometimes...

Manu National Park

Tambopata River is famous for featuring a great diversity of species of mammals, trees, insects and birds.
