Puerto Maldonado Things to See and Do

follow us

Although most people blow through town without giving it much notice, Puerto Maldonado does have an alluring frontier atmosphere that some intrepid individuals may find interesting—at least for a night or two before heading into the heart of the Amazon. Puerto Maldonado sits on the mighty Río Madre Dios and taking a ferry ride on it is one of the more popular things to do while here. For those looking to delve into some much-needed volunteer work, there are a range of opportunities in the area, including being a field assistant at a biological research station, working on a local farm or helping to reforest the rainforest.
