The "Capital of Biodiversity of Peru", located in the Madre de Dios region. Meet below some of the wonders it offers.
Puerto Maldonado, the "Capital of Biodiversity of Peru", is one of the most visited cities in our jungle and offers the possibility of being in direct contact with pure nature.
If you don't know her until now, find out here what her main attractions are recommended by PromPerú.
1. In the heart of the city the Tourist Viewpoint of Biodiversity rises imposingly, a 15-story building that resembles the trunk of a chestnut tree and from the last level, you will have a spectacular view of the entire jungle.
In each of its floors you will find artistic exhibitions that will make your visit as pleasant as possible but above all, you will learn about the wealth and history of Madre de Dios.
2. As nature is abundant in this city, you cannot miss the Tambopata Ecotourism Corridor, a set of natural attractions installed along the Tambopata River.
It is located in the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve and in it, the families of the area will receive you with open arms to share with you the best of their culture, customs and gastronomy. An unmissable activity.
3. Without a doubt, butterflies are the most beautiful insects that nature can give us and in the Butterfly House butterfly garden you can see them fly in all their splendor.
This magical experience is enjoyed by the little ones who are fascinated to see hundreds of Amazonian butterflies up close, but above all, they learn to conserve them and take care of poachers.
4. And to give you a little suspense, you can reach the Tropifauna serpentarium and have personal contact with the anaconda or the shushupe, two of the most representative boas of our Amazon.
This place is also a rescue center for animals that were taken out of natural habitat to be mistreated by unscrupulous.
An educational visit that will teach us to become aware of the damage that humans can cause to wildlife.
