SAS Travel Peru

Overview

This package is a number of individual tours put together to form the extended package with transfers and transport and accommodation so we arre not going to cancel on you at the last minute saying we don´t have enough people for a total package tour. This is a fairly important guarantee these days and the reason we run it like this. Also the idea that you meet lots of different people in different tours not just a package where people start the tour Day 1 and travel with you the entire journey.
It also means you have specialised guides in each different area so each place whether it be the jungle, Machu Picchu, Colca Canyon or Lake titicaca etc they will really know what they are talking about!

Is it for me?

As soon as you send us your travel dates we can give you a quote for the package including flights and organise E tickets and accomodation in Lima if you need. If you are arriving on an international flight around 4am into Lima you may like to connect through directly to the jungle. Otherwise just see additional options to make this package work best for you! We can tailor make this to meet your dates and interests. We think this is the minimum amount of days to see all these places but encourage you to add an additional night or 2 in Cusco or Arequipa to feel more relaxed on your holiday!

SAS Travel Peru

Transport

We can assist you with flights but we indicate that often it is cheaper to purchase your domestic flights connected with your intenational ticket. Both for financial reasons and security we believe it is better to buy a through flight ie from your leaving destination to your final destination Puerto Maldonado so that if there are any delays into Lima then the airline will take responsibility for the connection. Otherwise if you miss a domestic flight it can be difficult and costly....but as soon as you send us your travel dates we can give you a quote for the package including flights and organise E tickets and accomodation in Lima if you need. If you are arriving on an international flight around 4am into Lima you may like to connect through directly to the jungle.

Meet at Lima´s Airport at 11:00 am. Flight to Puerto Maldonado. Arrival to Puerto Maldonado airport Reception and transfer to our office, located in the center of Puerto Maldonado. Any luggage that you do not require during your stay in the rainforest can be safely kept in our storage room. This is to facilitate the transport by boat to the lodge. We will embark for our lodge traveling on the river-vessel “Puerto de Capitanía”. It is 40 minutes of navigation on the Madre de Dios River. After arrival at the facilities of the Lodge Corto Maltes Amazonía you will be received with refreshments made from seasonal fruits. Later, your guide will give you the necessary information for your stay and hand over the keys to your bungalow and security safe, followed by the lunch and some time to rest until the first excursion.
At 3:30 pm. Depart for your first contact with the jungle. You will be accompanied by your guide, who will show you the tropical trees, medicinal plants and other aspects of the exuberant nature among the 60 hectares of Brazil nut concession that Corto Maltés Amazonia stewards. Visit a shiringuero encampment, which is another one of the most important economic activities in the Madre de Dios region. This is a reproduction of a real camp, in which you can see the process of collecting rubber (better known as latex), and see how it is used for many products. The time for this trek is 2 hours.
Free time.- Back at the Lodge you can relax by the pool or in the hammocks on the terrace of your bungalow, savor an exotic cocktail at the bar, enjoy a relaxing massage by our qualified staff, visit our shop for a handcrafted souvenir of the rainforest or head to the riverside to view the breathtaking sunset.

Once on Lake Sandoval, we will embark in small rowboats in search of giant river otters. We will also have the possibility to spot a good number of other reptiles, mammals and birds in their natural habitat. When the guide finds an opportune spot where you can continue to observe the nature, we will eat breakfast. For the return trip, make sure you have gathered your belongings and we will row back to the pier.
Monkey Island.- This activity depends on the season and the discretion of your guide. There are times that due to flooding it is nearly impossible to disembark and walk around the island. There are also times in the year for mating and reproduction, and it is important to leave the wild monkeys alone, without human interruption. The animals are accustomed to visitors and can come very close. Therefore it is very important to always follow the instructions of your guide.
