Boat Navigation – Madre de Dios River

We embark from the Atalaya Port & Town, to travel downstream for somewhat 1 hour. Reaching the vicinity of Machuwasy Lagoon at elevations below 500 meters above sea level.

A motorized canoe-like embarkation (12 meters long and 2 meters wide with a roof to prevent any sudden rain or sunshine).

These types of boats are the most ideal for fast-flowing rivers. Even relaxing a little, while just floating along the cascades. The chances are also high to observe aquatic birds along the shores, dwelling in the reeds and not to mention, the strange-looking capybaras.

Other Activities Manu Tours from Cusco

Caves near Guadalupe Lodge

The caves are only a 10-minute walk from Lodge. Originated by creek erosion, the canyon is a natural formation. This area has cut into the mountain, and as a result has created an environment that harbors species that evolved in the darkness: bats, tailless whip scorpions.

Visiting the Hoatzin Home

The Hoatzin Kingdom is exactly what it says on the tin. These bizarre “Hoatzin” birds that you will see around this Kingdom can be seen in large flocks. Quite a tolerant animal, and for that reason, these birds can be observed at close range.

Even more, you can easily get clear and bright pictures of them while exploring this beautiful lagoon in Manu.

    We did the 2 days, 1 night program and enjoyed the trip. Day 1 was completely packed with a 6-hour journey, then 40 mins boat ride, then a 60-minute hike through the jungle, followed by a ride on a raft down a small river. We then made our way to our lodge, had dinner, and then did a hike at night. Day 2 was more relaxed but still very fun. While both days were action-packed, we enjoyed our trip. Our guide (Edwin), our driver, and even the group we were in were all phenomenally fun and kind individuals. This was a major highlight of our trip to Perú. Thank you once again for a phenomenal experience!

    My husband and I booked the 2 day Manu National Park to start our Peru trip. It was a wonderful experience! Our guide, Edwin, was very knowledgeable and could tell he loves his job. He knew where to look for all the jungle birds and monkeys! We we so lucky and we're able to see 3 species of monkeys! Edwin also taught us a lot about the trees, plants, and the many agriculture that is grown along the reserve. Our drivers and supporting staff throughout our two days were exceptional! One of the highlights was a nice dip in the river after a long day . Although our visit to the jungle was short, it was perfect for the short amount of time we had in Peru! Muchas gracias !

    My family and I had a great experience along this tour, we have a delayed flight but tour plans did not change at all, the team was extremely flexible. We been guided and drove by Luis. He has a lot of experience and knows the ins and outs about all of the wildlife and fauna we encountered. He is also very kind and funny. We saw all kinds of frogs, monkeys, snake, macaws and insects. Definitely recommended despite this is their shortest tour listed

    I can’t speak highly enough about our experience, we were picked up from the airport in Cusco and drove straight to the Manu road We went on a bunch of activities on the day second including the motorboat trip which was a lot of fun, It seems more like white water rafting! We saw a couple of monkeys by the lake and amazing birdlife close to the rafts. If you’re going to Cusco and want to explore the rainforest and not having much time, I highly recommend these guys, besides the 5-star service, the trips are also done in the most sustainable way, which goes to show that these guys care about the environment.
