How do I get from Cusco to the Amazon jungle?

11 August 2023 (221 visits)

Most people who travel to Peru visit our country on their annual 2-week or 10-day vacation, and they want to see as much as possible during their stay. For the majority of international travelers considering visiting South America, tourism in Peru can involve long and often expensive flights, and understandable concerns about their carbon footprint and responsible travel.


All this means that many of the tourists traveling to Peru are doing so as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and they want to see and experience every aspect of Peru’s history, culture and natural beauty. Of course, for those seeking to create unforgettable memories in Peru, Machu Picchu and Cusco are unmissable attractions. But Peru has so much more to offer.  


And so, once you have seen and enjoyed Machu Picchu and Cusco, and maybe hiked the Inca Trail or reached the top of Rainbow Mountain, a jungle trip from Cusco should be the next highlight of your Peru vacation, especially if you’ve always dreamed of visiting the Amazon basin, but didn’t really know where to start.


From Cusco, there are regular direct flights to Puerto Maldonado airport, and Puerto Maldonado can also be accessed by road from Cusco via overnight bus services. In the jungle town of Puerto Maldonado, we meet all our guests from their flight, or from the local bus station, for the transfer –mostly by boat- to our rainforest eco-lodge. And, of course, after their all-inclusive ecotourism adventure with us, we make sure our guests get back to the airport or bus terminal in plenty of time for their return to Cusco or journey on to Lima.


In addition to the expertise, comfort and good food we pride ourselves on offering, it is this unrivaled accessibility from Cusco or Lima that makes the rainforests of Tambopata that we help to protect the best place to visit the jungle in Peru, for travelers with just a few days to make the trip, and who want to get deep into the Amazon basin, far from the modern world in unspoiled tropical forests where wildlife is abundant.

What your rainforest visit means

In Peru ecotourism has helped make it possible to create national reserves and save the forests of the Amazon basin from destruction. By implementing our ecotourism-based conservation model (see our video), we are ensuring the forests will be around for future generations to appreciate. Pioneering projects like Tambopata Ecolodge, which was established in 1991, serve as a conservation model, by showing how responsible ecotourism can support conservation initiatives.
