  • The farm is 2 not the airport. We can go on foot to pass the time after his baggage. The garden is blooming and there are of course many butterfly but nothing exceptional. The greenhouses with butterflies in France are at least as beautiful. The small bar at the exit is nice and the team also!

  • Amazing to see hundreds or thousands of butterflies, moths, flying calls here or simply feeding on decaying fruit. Visit required!

Where to stay in Puerto Maldonado

Puerto Maldonado offers an ever-growing number of options for active jungle explorers and those with a hankering for something a little more exclusive. Budget-conscious adventurers can find a suitable place to rest at one of the simpler hotels or hostels in the downtown area. Eco-lodges represent perhaps the trendiest choice in the jungle--these are designed to bring the wilderness indoors, and make as small a mark on the landscape as possible. Resort-style hotels, with loads of facilities and services, generally remains clustered close to the rivers.
