Getting To Tambopata

There are daily incoming flights to Puerto Maldonado, the Capital of Madre de Dios, and the town where your new adventure begins.

These flights arrive from Lima or Cuzco, at least twice a day. They arrive  just in time to depart to your final destination at any of our three lodges or the Amazon Villa.

The flights from Lima depart from Jorge Chavez airport’s domestic flight terminal. The trip takes about 3 hours and most flights stop in Cuzco before continuing to Puerto Maldonado. Flights from Cusco depart from the domestic terminal of the Velasco Astete airport, and the trip takes around forty-five minutes.

Our team will be waiting for you at the Puerto Maldonado airport arrivals terminal. From there, we will take all passengers on our bus for a quick stop in our headquarters before we continue to the port. Once at the port, you will board our boats to continue to your final destination.

The boat schedules are designed to meet incoming and departing flights.

You can pack separate bags and safely leave them at our offices in Puerto Maldonado on the first day so we won’t be carrying them around uselessly. Your bag will be waiting for you at the airport the day you leave. After taking care of luggage, we take a 40-minute drive to the Infierno Community Port where we board long, sturdy canoes equipped with outboard motors and head upstream to one of our lodges or the Amazon Villa. The boat ride is pleasant and often includes our first sightings of macaws, heron, caiman and capybara. Once the boat arrives at the lodge dock, you will have officially arrived to the wild rainforests of Tambopata!

See below to see the route the boat will take to get to each lodge!
