  • 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, and leave the rest at our safe
  • deposit. This helps us keep the boats and cargo light.

  • dawn, during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.
