Puerto Maldonado
The Essential
The lively town and tourist and shopping hub of Puerto Maldonado is within easy reach of unspoiled natural reserves, such as the Parque nacional del Manu and Reserva nacional Tambopata. These huge, almost virgin territories are home to Amazonian tribes, among which the Machiguengas, Mashcos, Iñaparis, Chamas and Huarayos. If you stay in one of the lodges built on the forest's edge, you can go fishing from a canoe or rafting.
