Day 2  -  The Lost Cocha

After breakfast, you´ll visit a part of the jungle called "primary jungle" while walking toward this "Lost Cocha" where a wide variety of animals can be seen. Depending on the animals’ goodwill, you´ll see otters, caiman, turtles and a lot of colourful birds. Since this cocha is on the grounds of the lodge, it is guaranteed to stay untouched and intact. After a canoe ride around the lake, you´re taken back to the lodge for lunch. After lunch you have the option to visit the botanical gardens or choose to stay in the lodge and enjoy the swimming pool.

 

Day 3 - Gamitana (or Briolo) River

This is a day with a splendid river excursion. First you go on the big Madre de Dios River, then you walk towards the Gamitana river (Briolo River) that has its spring deep in the virgin Jungle. With a canoe you will explore this river, spotting a variety of animals as we go along. We’ll go fishing and swimming in the river. Then it’s back to the lodge for dinner and the last night.

 

Day 4 -  Back to civilization

In the morning after a leisurely breakfast you will take the return river journey to Puerto Maldonado to catch your onward connection.

What can you do before or after this tour

Things to do BEFORE this tour

 Eastern Sacred Valley in a private car

In a private car, you can visit Pisaq ruins and market, Tambomachay, Puka Pukara Q'enqo and Saqsayhuaman.

Western Sacred Valley in a private car

With a private car you visit Chinchero, Moray, Maras (town and saltpans) and Ollantaytambo.

The complete Sacred Valley in a private car

From Cusco you set out in a private car with a driver to take you to Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, Moray, Maras and Chinchero. During this full day you'll be amazed by the wonders, both natural and archaeological, of this region of Peru.

Machu Picchu  the budget solution

Train tickets to Aguas Calientes have been a sore science ever since people wanted to visit Machu Picchu. Certainly in high season, train tickets to Machu Picchu may not be available, more so tickets in your price range may be scarce or unobtainable.

This is why we have put together this viable alternative, a way for you to get to Machu Picchu comfortably, economically and with some interesting sightseeing along the way.

Machu Picchu  in 2 days

Instead of travelling up and down all the way from Cusco to Machu Picchu in only 1 day, having to rush from A to B to Z, you can leave for Aguas Calientes the day before your visit to Machu Picchu, thus taking out the stress of too much kilometres in one day, leaving you a good night's rest before you actually visit Machu Picchu the next day. The same as the one day trip, but spread over more time and thus a lot less stressful and including a hotel in Aguas Calientes.

Important: The Small Print

Big jungle, small animal!

Animals in the rain forest are not only timid, they are dwarfed by the rain forest environment and maintain distance between themselves and other species, including "touristicus curiousus." We cannot guarantee that you will witness any specific species on any particular occasion, though at anytime a wandering ant-eater could saunter right past your cabin at the lodge.
