I guess it's only fitting that our last major trip here in Peru would be a return to the same area we came to for our first trip. Sam likes the animals, I like the birds and we all like the scenery. On our first trip we flew into Puerto Maldonado then took a boat up the Madre de Dios River for an hour and a half to a lodge in the rainforest. This trip our flight was again into Puerto Maldonado, but after arrival we rode a bus for an hour to the boat launch on the Tambopata River. The next leg was ultimately seven hours upriver into the heart of the Tambopata Reserve. Among other treats, Marnie and I found out where the macaws and toucans live.
