Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve is located in the southeast of the country, wedged between the forested Madre de Dios and Puno regions, around 68 kilometers from the jungle town of Puerto Maldonado, which can be reached from the city of Cusco via half-hour scheduled flights, flights from Lima, or via regular bus services from Cusco (approximately 10 hours by bus).
From the airport or bus station in town, it is a further three hours by our own bus and boat to our Tambopata Ecolodge, in the heart of a protected natural area of primary forest, bordered to the east and southeast by Brazil and Bolivia.
The airlines LATAM and SKY offer flights from Lima or Cusco to Puerto Maldonado that arrive in plenty of time for our guests to catch one of our boats to the Ecolodge. Buses from Cusco leave at night, arriving in Puerto Maldonado in the early morning.
As part of the itineraries we offer, we provide daily transfers from 11:30 to 14:00, for those guests arriving on flights from Cusco and Lima. Guests who plan to arrive in Puerto Maldonado after these times should arrange to spend the night in the town of Puerto Maldonado and begin their eco-lodge itinerary the following day with our daily transfer to the lodge.
All our itineraries begin with the transfer to the Ecolodge from Puerto Maldonado. For reasons of river safety, transfers are not provided after 16:00. (*)
As part of the itineraries we offer, we provide daily transfers departing the Ecolodge for the airport or bus station at Puerto Maldonado. We recommend return flights or bus services from Puerto Maldonado departing any time after 10:00.
(*) Please note: If you require private transfers or services outside the hours indicated, please let us know or ask for details.
