Puerto Maldonado



Puerto Maldonado

With the constant tooting of the three wheeled rickshaw taxis buzzing about in the central streets and bit of mayhem met with a smart sheen, Puerto Maldonado is clearly thriving from its’ recent road connection to the outside world. The city’s location is prime in proximity to the most easily accessed and animal rich jungle in all of the Amazon Basin. This has been both a blessing and a curse for the tourism economy of Puerto Maldonado as travelers arrive steadily, but all to quickly depart down the river for their jungle lodges.


The city boasts a fluid, laid-back, ambiance with a beautiful plaza, burgeoning accommodations and lively nightlife. The climate is mercilessly sweltering and a bit of a shock to the system, but the nights offer a small reprieve and the people, shops and sites warrant a couple days of exploring. Puerto Maldonado


The city itself has been important over the years for rubber, logging, gold and oil prospecting. It’s most important to travelers, however, as a starting point for a voyage on Ríos Tambopata and Madre de Dios, which converge here. These watery wonderlands offer the most accessible primary jungle locales in the country. Indisputably, Puerto Maldonado offers travelers more chance to see, feel and hear the Amazonian jungle than anywhere else in Peru.
