overview / intro

We headed to the wild jungle frontier town of Puerto Maldonado. It's in the least populated department called Madre de Dios. Many of the countries largest national parks and reserves are here, including Manu National Park, Amarakaeri reserve, and Tambopata Natural Reserve. There are several key research centers around these regions that study and learn about the jungle habitat, local flora and fauna, and part of the Amazon ecosystem.

We stayed a few nights at one of the research centers in Tambopata. It was several hours by bus, then several more hours by riverboat to get there, so definitely remote. We went on several hikes led by the local guides, saw all sorts of animals and creatures, took lots of pictures, and learned about the local nature.

After that, we headed to the city and surrounding areas. There we did zip lining, tree canopy walks, a jungle lagoon tour, river canoe trip, and a visit to Monkey island.
