Tambopata: The Peruvian Jungle

Day 5

From Canopy Tower_6On Tuesday, we began the second leg of the trip…the adventure deep into the Peruvian jungle!! Personally, this was my favourite part of the trip because we were outdoors within nature that has hardly been touched by humans over the years. After seeing Q’oricancha in Cusco in the morning, which is a temple built on top of Inca foundations, we headed to the airport. There, we caught the 30 min flight to Puerto Maldonado in the morning. We arrived into the heat of the Amazon region (altitude of 200m) at about noon, and met up with Susana’s family there. We would be joining her 3 brothers and some of their children for the jungle trip. In total, there were 14 of us. Rainforest Expeditions picked us up at the airport and we were off! First stop was their office, where you could leave any luggage that you didn’t need.

Cusco Part 1: Inca Ruins and More

Moray_1I have recently returned from a 10-day trip to Peru – to Cusco and to the Peruvian Jungle! I had an excellent time on our little adventure and am now back in La Paz. We left Fri July 28th and arrived back in La Paz on Mon Aug. 6th. I went with Susana and Mike (my boss and her husband, as well as being my housemates). I was invited to join them on the trip which had been organized around Susana’s family trip to the jungle.
