Have breakfast at your hotel before being transferred to the airport for your flight to Puerto Maldonado (flight not included, to be booked by agent). Upon arrival from Cusco, our representative will welcome you to the airport and drive you ten minutes to our Puerto Maldonado headquarters. While enjoying your first taste of the forest in our gardens, we will ask you to pack only the necessary gear for your next few days. The rest of your items will be left at our safe deposit to help keep the boats and cargo light. At the headquarters, you will be transferred into Tambopata River Port, entering the Native Community of Infierno. To continue the day, you will be transferred via boat to Posada Amazonas from the port. The forty-five-minute boat ride will take you into the community´s Primary Forest Private Reserve. Once you arrive, there will be a reception by the guides. Our guides are biologists, tourism professionals, or community members. Unless noted otherwise, our guides speak English. Guides are assigned at a 10:1 ratio in Posada Amazonas. Groups smaller than 10 people will be merged with other groups under one guide. If you would like a private guide or a guide in a language other than English, please let us know. Be prepared for orientation, the lodge manager will welcome you and brief you with important navigation and security tips. The rest of the day, you will participate in the following activities: Canopy Tower: A twenty-minute walk from Posada Amazonas leads to the 30-meter scaffolding canopy tower. A banister staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From atop, you obtain spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest cut by the Tambopata River winding through the middle. Now and then, toucans, parrots, or macaws are seen flying against the horizon, or mixed species canopy flocks land in the treetop next to you. Ecotourism Lecture: A daily presentation on the Infierno ecotourism project is available every night from a staff member.
