Lago Sandoval, Puerto Maldonado

(420+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
Trek around Lago Sandoval, surrounded by thick rainforest and offering access to one of the most popular hiking routes in the area. Take the trail from the dock and keep your eyes peeled for caimans, a huge variety of birds, monkeys, turtles, and the endangered river otter. You can also take a boat out onto the lake to see the forest attractively curled around the large expanse of water, with tree reflections in the mirror-like surface making for excellent photographs.
