Coming from Cuzco, after having visited all the northside, P.to Maldonado is like "El dorado". Here the temperatures goes up and up and up and finally, I could wear my favourite shorts!!!!
..If i just remember how many nites i did suffer the freezing peruvian cold.....

In Puerto Maldonado you will find only nice and open people, quiet different for people who lives in the coast or in the north side...you will detect it by yourself...

You can share with them lot of things, do a lot of activities...com'on ..do not forget that you are in the amazony!!!!!

This is exactly the place where you can chill for a bit, watch things you would never even think about 'em and morevoer, smell a bit of peace and quietness....


How to take a shower in the jungle..

Well...When you are walking trough the jungle, you will come in a certain point, where you will start think..."OK, I gotta have a shower"...but you have always to keep in mind where you are at that certain moment...so...this is what the place offers...
Absolutely amazing....

One more week on it????

After more then a week travelling trough rivers in the amazony, I was definitely destroyed...but i just enjoyed soooooooo much...

    I'm going to Peru in May/June and am very much looking forward to visiting this part of the Amazon. Looks like you had an excellent time! Cheers, RP

    Incredible. I thought the cold water showers at the Amazon lodge we stayed at were an adventure but are actually not compared to bathing in the Amazon.
