Puerto Maldonado & the Amazon

About Puerto Maldonado and the Amazon

The frontier colonist town of Puerto Maldonado is a remote jungle settlement close to the Bolivian border. Stretching out from the Madre de Dios riverfront to the forest edge, Puerto Maldonado offers excellent access to the Amazon rainforest with jungle lodges, exceptional wildlife and indigenous cultures all within easy reach. Lago (lake) Sandoval is only an hour away downriver and is a great place for bird spotting with the giant otter making the occasional appearance. Travelling further east to Lago Valencia you can watch gold-panners on the river and visit a small Indian settlement before observing caiman basking on the muddy banks of the lake.
