  • In the afternoon Tour of Colonial and Modern Lima and a Visit to the Larco Museum - This half day tour visits both the colonial and modern sections of this "City of Kings." Colonial sites include the lovely Plaza de Armas with its cathedral and palace, and the exquisite Torre Tagle Palace modern day seat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Its invaluable collection includes over 10,000 pieces of pottery from the Mochica, Chimu and other pre-Incan civilizations. Of special interest, although not for everyone, is the Museum's erotic pottery collection, the only of its kind in the world!
  • Accommodation.


Day 2 Sunday: Lima / Puerto Maldonado / Tambopata - Posada Amazonas (B-L-D)
 

  • Breakfast at your hotel.
  • Transfer to the airport for your flight to Puerto Maldonado.
  • Upon arrival from Lima, reception and transfer to the Tambopata river port in Puerto Maldonado. Puerto Maldonado is situated at the confluence of the mighty Madre de Dios and Tambopata Rivers and is a bustling, booming tropical frontier town. Its principal activities are gold mining, Brazil nut collecting, timber extraction, agriculture and ecotourism. After a brief stop at our offices we will depart on a 30 minute drive to the Infierno Community port, followed by 45 minutes boat journey by motorized canoe to Posada Amazonas.
  • Depending on the arrival time of the plane we will have a boxed lunch aboard the boats or have lunch upon arrival at Posada Amazonas. During our voyage we may see bird species typical of the river or forest edge such as: Black Skimmer, Pied Lapwing, Capped Heron, Jabiru Stork, Roadside Hawk, and several species of kingfishers, swallows and flycatchers.
  • When we arrive at Posada Amazonas we will unpack and unwind. Posada Amazonas is a comfortable yet unobtrusive 30 room lodge owned by the Community of Infierno and managed with Rainforest Expeditions. We will receive a short orientation and a complete briefing on the lodge before our afternoon activity : the canopy tower. In this activity, we will visit a 35 meter scaffolding tower that is 15 minutes walking from the lodge. The scaffolding tower is built so that you safely climb using the internal staircase with verandahs on each side, and rest in platforms present every 2 meters. From the top you not only get spectacular views of the river and the surrounding forest but also excellent opportunities to observe birds from the canopy including parrots, toucans and macaws. A presentation on the Ecotourism Project will be given after dinner.
  • Accommodation.


Day 3 Monday: Posada Amazonas  (B-L-D)
 

  • We will be up at dawn for a visit to the Tres Chimbadas oxbow lake. After an early breakfast we depart, fifteen minutes from Posada Amazonas by boat and a 30 minute walk take us to the lake shore. From here we take a long, easy canoe ride around it. We will look for giant river otters, turtles, hoatzin, and wading birds. The giant river otters that are seen in Tres Chimbadas belong to a resident family of nine.
  • We will return to the lodge's trails in time for a visit to a small parrot clay lick. Dozens and sometimes hundreds of Blue Headed Parrots, Orange-Cheeked Parrots, Cobalt-winged parakeets, and sometimes even the rare Rock Parakeet congregate here on clear days to ingest clay. This congregation creates a riotous and colorful wildlife spectacle where the greens, oranges, reds and blues of the parrots dance around the bank as each individual parrot competes for their choice beakful of clay. At times, this spectacle lasts for hours.
  • Then we will return to the lodge for lunch before embarking on our afternoon outing.
  • In the afternoon we will visit the community's ethnobotanical center. From this little shop, the community has been registering the uses of medicinal plants from elders and planting, producing and distributing them for over ten years. We will hike the trails around the center with one of the residents who will explain to us the everyday uses of forest resources in medicine, construction, food and fiber.
  • We will return to Posada Amazonas for dinner and overnight.
