One of the “must-see” destinations in Peru and South America

08 March 2024 (302 visits)

Tambopata is one of the least-impacted, most unspoiled tropical wilderness areas anywhere in the world, and certainly one of the “must-see” travel destinations in Peru and South America. For those travelers planning to travel to Peru for a vacation, Tambopata, where our Tambopata Ecolodge is located, is the best place to visit the Amazon rainforest.

However, planning a trip to Tambopata can be confusing. There is so much information online about the National Reserve, jungle lodges, and different tour operators, that it can be difficult to know which package to choose.


A combination of factors makes Tambopata so special. Firstly, it is home to the most biodiverse area of rainforest in Peru, and arguably anywhere in South America. Secondly, it is very easy to get to Tambopata as part of a short Peru vacation; there are regular flights from Lima and Cusco to the town of Puerto Maldonado, and at Tambopata Ecolodge we meet our guests from the airport –or the local bus station- and take them by boat to our eco-lodge, around 68 kilometers away, deep in the forest.


When choosing where to stay in Tambopata, you need to consider a number of aspects before making your decision. Top of that list for most travelers is the question “Will I see animals?”. Well, Tambopata National Reserve, where we operate our responsible ecotourism tours, is one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. But to make sure you will be visiting those protected fauna-rich forests, and not the disturbed secondary forest closer to town, you need to book a jungle lodge far enough away from Puerto Maldonado, and close enough to the National Reserve, to ensure that you’ll be seeing and experiencing untouched tropical rainforest habitat.


Another question that travelers ask themselves concerns comfort and safety. At Tambopata Ecolodge, we offer our guests comfortable rooms, good food, personalized lodge service, and the company of professional, knowledgeable and highly-trained guides during the rainforest excursions that leave from our eco-lodge base. Of course, it’s great to be able to visit a remote area of Amazon rainforest in Peru and to be comfortable and eat well. But it is perhaps that third factor which is most important: because without the services of an experienced local guide who really knows the forest and where wildlife can be seen, no Amazon trip can ever be said to be truly complete.


So, as part of your trip to Peru, why not visit us at Tambopata Ecolodge, and enjoy our remote location, hospitality, expertise and local knowledge as you explore the Amazon rainforest?

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.
