The last great natural wilderness, the Amazon is a truly awesome location that needs to be experienced to be fully understood. Peru‘s Amazon region, called Madre de Dios, is located in the southeastern part of the country just north of Lake Titicaca and is home to the pristine Tambopata National Reserve.
This is one of the easiest parts of the Amazon to access, just a short flight from Cusco or Lima, making ideal for those who want a relatively quick taste of the Amazon. The region takes its names from the Madre de Dios river (tributary of the Amazon) that runs through the area.
It’s a magnificent place to see hyacinth macaws, monkeys, caiman, giant otters and other amazing wildlife in one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. Speak to a Travel Designer about including a trip to the Southern Peruvian Amazon in your luxury tour of Peru.
