Being part of the audience to this show of natural wealth in all its glory, as is seen in the department of Madre de Dios, is a unique experience. And truth to be told, you could expect no less from this exotic place that gathers together some of the country's most beautiful landscapes.

Puerto Maldonado is a city in Southeastern Peru, capital of the Madre de Dios Region, founded originally by Carlos Leon-Velarde Valcarcel for the collection of wild rubber. It is in the Amazon forest, 55 km west of the Bolivian border, on the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios River, a tributary of the Amazon River.

The Manu National Park is one of the world most cherished natural laboratories and wildlife refuges and for very good reasons because living inside its vibrant subtropical environment is an endless variety of plant and animal species. Go there and discover more than 800 birds, close to 200 mammal and even more than 100 bat species. The tangible beauty found in Madre de Dios seems to have no end. More excitement is located just a few minutes away from Puerto Maldonado, the capital city of the department Madre de Dios: The Tambopata National Reserv e is ready with fresh surprises for us. Despite being smaller than the Manu National Park in extension, it is similarly a jewel of biodiversity. Lodges inside it meet the requirements of environment protection.

As you go into depths of paradise, you will discover the overwhelming variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and butterflies that make Peru not only a country of mega diversity but one designed to please the senses. Travel to Puerto Maldonado.
