My 3-day adventure at Lake Sandoval with Corto Maltes Amazonía was a captivating journey into the heart of the Amazon rainforest. From the moment I arrived in Puerto Maldonado, the team provided exceptional service, ensuring a seamless transition to the lodge. Exploring the jungle on the first day was enlightening, with the visit to the shiringuero encampment providing insight into the region’s economic activities. The nocturnal boat excursion to spot caimans added an element of adventure to the evening.

Day two’s excursion to Lake Sandoval was a highlight, with sightings of diverse wildlife including monkeys and giant river otters. The visit to the lookout tower and Brazil nut camp offered breathtaking views and a deeper understanding of the region’s economy. The day ended with a delightful dinner, showcasing delicious local cuisine.
