We will leave very early before breakfast to be able to see the first show, the arrival of parrots and parakeets, they usually arrive earlier than the macaws, after seeing these small parrots and seeing the macaws arrive, we will have our breakfast watching the arrival of The macaws that begin to arrive in pairs and settle in the trees near the clay lick, then when there is a large group of around 100 to 200 macaws, they will come down to eat the clay, a multicolored spectacle of flights and screams. This is a show you will never forget. After observing this wonderful macaw clay lick, we will return to the camp for a rest since we have gotten up early to see this spectacle. After lunch, we will travel in our boat for about 15 minutes, to visit a family of locals (López family) where we will visit a small Lake, (the lakes are formations of the meanders of the rivers). We will paddle in this small lake and be able to see a variety of birds, monkeys and maybe with luck a tapir that usually prowls this small lake. Return to our camp. Then we will do a night walk to see species that are only visible at night in the Amazon, return to the camp for dinner, we will spend the night in our comfortable tents.


Day 3  Pariamanu clay lick / Lodge

We will see the macaw clay lick again, to have the opportunity to see them again if we were not lucky the day before, a great day to see them again or just take more pictures.


Pariamanu clay lick

The Pariamanu clay lick is a bank approximately ten meters high on a side arm of the Pariamanu River, where several species of parrots and macaws gather in a magical display. The most famous visitor is the red and green macaw. These birds have to gather every morning to feed on the clay before they fly off in search of fruits and seeds in the jungle. This show lasts between one and three hours and follows a specific order. Small species such as parakeets and parrotlets arrive first, then parrots appear to be eventually followed by the significantly larger macaws that bring this exceptional explosion of color and sound to a dignified close.


Back to our camp we will have lunch, after lunch we return to Puerto Maldonado, approximately 3 hours and from there travel along the Madre de Dios River, in a trip of approximately 15 minutes, then we will arrive at our next lodge "Amazon Lodge Tambopata ” where we will accommodate ourselves in our comfortable rooms, then we will do a night walk to see species that are only visible at night in the Amazon, return to the lodge for dinner, we will spend the night in our comfortable lodge.

From there we will enter the National Reserve (TAMBOPATA CANDAMO) in a walk of approximately one hour and we will arrive at the Lodge where we will settle in our comfortable rooms very close to Lake Sandoval. The hostel has private bathrooms and is located within the Tambopata National Reserve which makes it different from other hostels where we guarantee that you will see more flora and fauna and be in contact with nature. After settling down we will visit Lake Sandoval taking a rowing canoe along the lake, where it is possible to see the giant otter (river wolf), black caiman, shanshos, herons, cormorants, Kingfishers, etc. Return to the lodge for dinner, after dinner we will visit the lake again in the canoe with our flashlights or lamps to be able to see the alligators, they usually marry at night, where we will show and explain them and then we will return to our comfortable lodge to spend the night.
