Day 1: Puerto Maldonado, Posada Amazonas
Your tour starts at the time of your arrival to Puerto Maldonado by 1pm at the latest. Upon arrival you will be welcomed at the airport and driven ten minutes to the lodge’s office in Puerto Maldonado. Here you will be asked to pack only the necessary gear for the next days, and leave the rest at the safe deposit. Skirting Puerto Maldonado, you´ll drive 20 km to the Tambopata River Port, entering the Native Community of Infierno. The port is a communal business. The 45-minute boat ride from Tambopata Port to Posada Amazonas will take you into the Community’s Primary Forest Private Reserve. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws can be spotted flying towards the horizon. Presentations on the Infierno ecotourism project are available every night. (lunch, dinner)

Day 2: Activities at Posada Amazonas
The lake ‘TresChimbadas’ is 30 minutes by boat and 45 minutes hiking from the lodge. Once there you will paddle around the lake in a catamaran, searching for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of the lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers. Otters are most active from dawn to eight or nine in the morning. You may try your luck in fishing for piranhas.
A 20 minutes hike takes you to a clay lick. From a blind located about twenty meters away you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on a river bank (depending on the weather). Species such as Mealy and Yellow-headed Amazon, Blue-headed Parrot and Dusky-headed Parakeet descend at this clay lick. The clay lick is most active at dawn and during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.
A twenty minute boat drive downriver leads to a trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape. The Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicines out of forest plants and administers them to patients who choose their little clinic. They have produced a trail which explains the different medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants.
You will have the option of hiking out at night, when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. Much easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories. (Remember to bring a flashlight!) (breakfast, lunch, dinner)

Day 3: Posada Amazonas, Puerto Maldonado
Retracing the river and road you head back to Puerto Maldonado airport. (breakfast)
