The best Amazon region to visit in Peru

31 May 2024 (325 visits)

If you’re thinking about visiting a jungle or rainforest, then it would be impossible to do better than visit the Amazon jungle in Peru, and there are many reasons to consider Tambopata, where our eco-lodge is located, as the best place to visit the rainforest in Peru.


There are many advantages to choosing Tambopata as an option for a visit to the Amazon jungle in Peru, and it is a very popular choice among international travelers looking for an authentic jungle tour.


Tambopata is a jungle province in southeastern Peru, close to the border with Bolivia. The Tambopata rainforest can be accessed easily via short flights from Lima or Cusco to the town of Puerto Maldonado, the capital of the Madre de Dios region.


Tambopata is close to Manu, and therefore has very similar levels of biodiversity. But whereas travelers will need between 5 and 7 days to truly appreciate Manu, the greater accessibility of Tambopata means that an excellent rainforest experience can be enjoyed in just 3 or 4 days.


The Tambopata region is also famous for attractions not available anywhere else in the rainforests of Peru. Daily excursions on offer in Tambopata to see fabulous wildlife include the region’s macaw and parrot clay licks. These concentrations of multiple spectacularly colorful bird species are a real highlight, but trail walks, boat trips and oxbow lake visits also offer expertly guided access to countless other locations where wildlife is abundant.


The best way to visit the Amazon rainforest in Tambopata is to book a jungle lodge stay. At Tambopata Ecolodge, our perfectly situated lodge –on the banks of the Tambopata River and bordering the vast Tambopata National Reserve- offers excellent levels of comfort and service, as well as ease of access to wildlife, and professional naturalist guides hired from among the local population for their specialized wildlife knowledge.

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.
