As a welcome gesture, guests will be served a refreshing juice made from local fruits, while our guide provides information about the hotel’s policies. Once we reach the hotel, we will settle into our assigned rooms.
After a pleasant rest, we will visit Monkey Island, situated in the middle of the Madre de Dios River, just a few minutes away from our hotel. This island is home to various species of monkeys, including a hybrid species. With any luck, we may also spot sloths and turtles. We will then return to the hotel for lunch.
Following a delicious meal and a short siesta, we will embark on a two-hour hike through the dense tropical forest. Accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide, we will explore the trails, encountering a diverse array of medicinal plants and ancient trees that are over six hundred years old. Throughout the hike, there will be ample opportunities to observe wildlife such as monkeys, parrots, macaws, squirrels, reptiles, insects, frogs, arachnids, and more.
