co-tourism is not only one of the best ways to take Amazon tours it’s quickly becoming the only way. Many Amazon tourist destinations are jumping on the eco-tourism bandwagon. finding that tourism and ecological conservation can co-exist and ultimately flourish.
Some of the world’s top eco-tours are right in Peru. in the Madre de Dios region of the Amazon rainforest. The Madre de Dios. so named because of the glistening Amazon tributary that waters southeast Peru. is rife with millions of species of flora and fauna some unique only to this region.
Local communities harvest Brazil nuts. anacondas and black caimans slink along the riverbanks. and hundreds of scarlet macaws feed on collpas. or clay licks. If you are seeking Peru tours of the Amazon and want to experience all of what nature has to offer. Madre de Dios can be an excellent option for you.
The capital of the region. Puerto Maldonado. is the gateway to several lodges that are leaders in the eco-tourism industry. From this gold mining outpost. travelers can take a boat ride along the Tambopata River. which leads to the Tambopata National Reserve. This incredibly biodiverse area extends nearly 700 acres over virgin rainforest.
Environmentally-minded travelers can use these lodges as starting points to venture into the mysterious Amazon. learning about the diverse flora and fauna. participating in activities that have little negative impact on the environment. and supporting local communities and conservation efforts.
Eco-tourists can catch sight of endangered wildlife like black caiman. macaws. and pumas. Several species on the verge of extinction are flourishing within the borders of the reserve. including the giant river otter. anteater. tapir. giant armadillo. black spider monkey. jaguar. pink river dolphin. yellow-headed river turtle. and anaconda among several others. Who knows how much longer these rare creatures will be around unless we do our best to conserve their habitat.
