Gold panning on the Tampobamba and Madre de Dios rivers, and the latex boom at the end of the past century, determined the foundation of the city of Puerto Maldonado., Today, Madre de Dios, the old Inca Antisuyo, is still what It has been -for centuries- for all adventure lovers: a virgin and frontier land full of mysteries.
Near Puerto Maldonado, there are several attractions such as the Sandoval and Valencia lakes, next to the Bolivian border (by river, 4 hours from the city), These wonderful places give the tourist the opportunity to fish, be close to nature, and be in contact with native communities.
Tambopata is a nature reserve in the Peruvian Amazon Basin. Its diverse rainforest adjacent to the Heath and Tambopata River is a protected area home to Incan communities. For thousands of years, it was home to the aboriginal Amazonians but an increase in colonists, mining and road constructions have challenged the preservation of Tambopata until 1977 when the first protected zone was established. Protected zones expanded quickly and 271,000 hectares formed the Tambopata National Reserve. Today, this nature reserves harbors over 10,000 species of flora, 600 species of birds, 200 species of mammals, 1,000 species of butterflies and 100 species of amphibians and reptiles!
