Visit Madre de Dios
A great place to experience the region's beauty first hand is Manu National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site protects over 1 million hectares of Amazonian rainforest, where visitors can observe some of its unique species up close. Another popular option for travelers is Tambopata National Reserve. Here you can find hundreds of species of birds as well as caiman-filled lagoons and crystal-clear rivers perfect for swimming or canoeing.
In addition to its natural beauty, Madre de Dios has a rich cultural history and was once home to ancient civilizations such as Chachapoyas, who built mysterious cliff dwellings near the town of Kuelap that are still standing today!
