How to get there?
Once you arrive at the city of Puerto Maldonado, in southeastern Peru, hotel representatives will pick you up at the airport and take you on a one-hour road trip, followed by an hour cruise by motorized riverboat on the Tambopata River. The cruise time may vary, as guides often stop to show guests wildlife.
Flights to Puerto Maldonado depart from Lima or Cusco and take 1.5 hour from Lima and 0.5 from Cusco. Pick up from the airport is at 1:00 PM and at 1:30 PM, while transfers from the lodge to the airport depart at 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM.
Luggage is transported by hand in several stages of the trip, so guests are asked to limit their weight to 32 pounds per piece. Your luggage will be waiting for you at the airport on your departure date. After taking care of your luggage, a 40 minute land transfer will lead you to the community port of Infierno.
Upon arrival in Infierno, guests board stout canoes equipped with outboard motors to head upstream to Posada Amazonas. The boat trip often includes guests’ first sightings of macaws, herons, alligators and capybaras.
Once you’ve arrived to the wild jungles of Tambopata, access to the lodge requires going up a staircase with about 70 to 90 steps from the riverbank (varying depending on the season, rainy or dry, due to the fluctuation of the river level), which usually takes guests about 15 minutes.
