Getting there

Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve is located in the southeast of the country, wedged between the forested Madre de Dios and Puno regions, around 70 kilometers from the jungle town of Puerto Maldonado, which can be reached from the city of Cusco via a half-hour scheduled flight, or by road (approximately 12 hours by bus). From the airport, it is a further three hours by bus and boat to Tambopata Ecolodge, in the heart of this protected natural area of primary forest bordered to the east and southeast by Brazil and Bolivia.


The airlines LATAM, Avianca and Star Peru offer daily 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.


Transfers Puerto Maldonado - Tambopata Ecolodge

As part of the programs we offer, we provide daily transfers from 12:00 to 13:30, for those guests arriving on LanPeru, Avianca and Star Peru 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 Tambopata Ecolodge itinerary the following day with our daily transfer to the lodge. All of our programs begin with the transfer to the Ecolodge (See “Programs”). For reasons of safety, transfers cannot be provided after 16:00. (*)


Transfers Tambopata Ecolodge - Puerto Maldonado

As part of the programs we offer, we provide daily transfers from 7:30 and 8:30 from the Ecolodge to the airport at Puerto Maldonado. We therefore recommend return flights from Puerto Maldonado departing between 11:00 and 13:30. Those guests departing in later flights should remember that they will be required to wait in the airport for their departure or spend time in the town of Puerto Maldonado from the moment they are transferred by the company from the Ecolodge to the local airport.

Rainforest Alliance - Tambopata Eco Lodge

What your rainforest visit means

In Peru it is tourism that has made it possible to create national reserves and save the forests of the Amazon basin from destruction. By working to encourage travelers to visit the rainforest, we are ensuring it will be around for future generations to appreciate. Pioneering projects like Tambopata Ecolodge, which was established in 1991, provide the model that teaches local people the importance of conserving our natural heritage, by showing them that forests are worth more to us all when they are left to flourish, instead of being exploited.
