Depart on the 2 hour boat trip by motorized canoe down the Tambopata River to Posada Amazonas. Depending on the arrival time, you may have a boxed lunch aboard the boats or have lunch upon arrival at Posada Amazonas. During your riverboat voyage, you may see tropical bird species edge such as Black Skimmer, Pied Lapwing, Capped Heron, Jabiru Stork, Roadside Hawk, and several species of kingfishers, swallows and flycatchers.

It's an excellent spot for bird watching and taking in the incredible Amazon jungle views. After dinner in the lodge, you'll get to watch an informative video about the Tambopata Rainforest.
Saturday: POSADA AMAZONAS
Rise at dawn for an early breakfast and a visit to the Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake.

Enjoy a leisurely canoe ride through the lake to see the wildlife and breathtaking scenery.
Return to the hiking trail and turn down another path, this one leading to a small parrot clay lick. Dozens and sometimes hundreds of Blue Headed Parrots, Orange-Cheeked Parrots, Cobalt-winged parakeets, and sometimes even the rare Rock Parakeet congregate here to ingest clay, which is nutritious for them. This congregation creates a riotous and colorful wildlife spectacle where the greens, oranges, reds and blues of the parrots dance around the bank as each individual parrot competes for their choice beakful of clay. At times, this spectacle lasts for hours. Then return to the lodge for lunch and a brief rest before embarking on the afternoon outing. Visit the Infierno Community Ethnobotanical Center, where locals pack, distribute, and sell medicinal plants gathered in the jungle. Then return to Posada Amazonas for dinner and relaxation. Enjoy a tropical drink during happy hour, and opt for a night hike to look for amphibians and insects before retiring for the night.
