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 a protected natural area of primary forest bordered to the east and southeast by Brazil and Bolivia.
The airline LATAM offers 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.
As part of the itineraries we offer, we provide daily transfers from 13:30 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 Tambopata Ecolodge itinerary the following day with our daily transfer to the lodge.
All our itineraries begin with the transfer to the Ecolodge. For reasons of safety on the river, transfers cannot be provided after 16:00. (*)
As part of the itineraries we offer, we provide daily transfers departing the Ecolodge from 8:20 for the airport at Puerto Maldonado. We therefore recommend return flights from Puerto Maldonado departing from 13:00 onwards.
(*) Please note: If you require private transfers or services outside the hours indicated, please let us know or ask for details.
