Full description
Enjoy a boat tour through the rainforest. The river is the perfect place to appreciate the majestic Amazon sunset and admire the change of colors in the sky. When night falls, get closer to the riverside and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. The most common animals to see are white caimans and capybaras, the biggest rodent in the world which usually move in packs of 4 or 5.

After the caiman and capybara search, it is time to turn off the boat engine and listen to the nighttime noises of the jungle. After this activity, return to Puerto Maldonado.
