Talking about the jungle, and specifically about the Tambopata National Reserve, is to talk about life itself. The area, located in the department of Madre de Dios, contains possibly the greatest biodiversity on earth, housing more than 10,000 species of plants, mammals, birds, insects, amphibians and reptiles in an area of 274, 690 hectares. Tambopata is a destination to be in contact with nature, explore its forests, browse the wide rivers, enjoy the rain and its gastronomy. Tambopata Research Center, which began as headquarters for in depth explorations of Amazonian nature and wildlife, is the most remote lodge in the Amazon and allows visitors to see monkeys, various types of birds, insects and even jaguars. It has only 18 rooms built with local materials and a unique infrastructure that will allow you to blend in with the environment in comfort, making your time in the jungle a real venture into the heart of the biosphere.
