DAY 1

Upon your arrival to Puerto Maldonado, Peru's capital of biodiversity, we will welcome you at the airport.  Then, we'll start our program by visiting the city on a bus.

Afterwards, we will go to Puerto Capitanía, the port where our riverboat will be waiting for us.  We will sail across Rio Bajo Madre de Dios (Winding River) until arrival at our lodge, 30 km away from Puerto Maldonado City.  On our way, you will be able to observe rural lands utilized for agricultural and livestock activities near the city.  lf the weather is good,  you will view colorful  plants like the large-flowered  heliconias, and you will have the chance to observe diverse animal species  such  as capybaras,  caimans,  water  turtles,  herons, cormorants, carrion birds, and birds of prey.

Upon arrival to our lodge, you will be welcomed with delicious Amazon tropical fruit nectars and taken to your comfortable room (bungalow) reserved for the occasion.  Once you are settled in the room, a hearty lunch will be served for you in our warm, rustically designed dining room.

CAIMAN COCHA

In the afternoon  our specialized guide will take you through an interpretive  trail, conveniently  signposted,  to Caiman  Cocha,  a little lagoon where you will have the chance to observe the black caiman  and the common caiman, as well as efficient predators   located at the top of the food chain.  They feed on the rich water fauna-mainly represented by fish-that inhabit the pond.

At dusk, you will witness the spectacular sunset over the majestic Amazon region, an experience full of color in overwhelming ranges and intensities.

Back in the lodge, a delicious dinner will await you and you will have free time to share unforgettable moments at the bar, equipped with an excellent game room and all of the drinks you can imagine.

The exotic night time fauna will lull you to sleep with the soothing melody of a huge number of songbirds and calls..

DAY 2

The singing birds of paradise will wake you up refreshed and renewed.  A hearty breakfast will provide the energy for a morning full of new experiences.

LOST COCHA

After breakfast, we will start an adventure in the virgin forest, accompanied by a local guide. We will go on a hike in the deep and enchanting forest where we will traverse very well preserved and prepared trails for our interpretive tour.  On our way, we will cross temporary  water courses called tributaries through very well-kept  bridges, and we'll  witness  the widest  range  of exotic flora and fauna in the wild.  We will identify a great variety of ornamental plants with unparalleled beauty.

On route to the Lost Cocha, we will see diverse species of medicinal plants and fruit trees that support the animal populations in the Amazon forest.

With luck, you'll  get to see bigger mammals,  like the jaguar or Peruvian jaguar,  the Brazilian tapir, and the  white-lipped   peccary;   rodents  like  the  giant  otter,  the capybara,  the spotted  paca,  and  the armadillo; primates like the coto or howler monkey, and the squirrel monkey; reptiles like the iguana and the bothrops atrox; amphibians like the toad;  and birds like the guan,  the partridge, the golden parakeet, and the scarlet macaw.

The rivers leave behind wetland systems, lakes, ponds, and bends like the spectacular Lost Cocha.  Wetlands play an ecological role of great importance since they represent a substantial biological source with endemic species.  They are shelter to mammals.  These swamps comprise 60% of the area protected and restored by Eco Amazonia Lodge.

The presence of the Moriches palm is very important for Amazonian ethnic groups.  lt is a mysterious  plant considered the  mother of the forest or the tree of life.

The swamp  is home of jealous  guardians  like the jaguar, a feline considered son of the swamp; the anaconda, the world's  biggest snake; the owl that sees everything from its' perch atop the trees to cure all ills; and the black caiman,  the guardian that punishes  those that dare to steal the female moriche palm fruit.

Once in Lost Cocha, we will go up to an enormous observation platform.  From this lookout, you will see the enormous surface that this magic place covers and where you can see two types of swamps: thick and mixed.

Then, we will take a pleasant hike around the Lost Cocha and with luck you'll get to see the "giant otter" or Pteronurabrasiliensis,  the biggest of its' type and one of the most impressive animals of the Amazon region.  Back in the lodge, you can enjoy an exquisite lunch.

MONKEY ISLAND

In the afternoon, joined with our specialized guide, we will visit the Monkey lsland, a few minutes away from the lodge in the center of the Madre de Dios River.  This island shows an enormous variety of exuberant flora and hosts numerous primate specimens like the black spider monkey, the black-cap capuchin monkey, the squirrel monkey, and the lion monkey.  Also other species of little mammals like the ring-tailed coatí (nasua nasua), the squirrel, and an enormous variety of colored birds.

Finally, we will complete our visit to the island, enjoying a sunset with the most impressive dusk in the jungle.  Back in the lodge, you will savor an exquisite dinner.

DAY 3

The singing birds of paradise will wake you up and the powerful roar of the howler monkey will warn you that you are still in its' territory and that it is time to leave.

In our dining room, a delicious breakfast will await you before going back to Puerto Maldonado.
