Lago Sandoval, Puerto Maldonado

(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We went here as part of a tour and had a wonderful time. Luckily, we saw several caymans. Unfortunately we were less lucky with the giant otters. I guess I'll have to come back. I absolutely loved it.  more »
  • The site is cute but access difficult rainy season. It is best to take the tour in the same town as in the Web pages. There is enough difference in costs
