Visiting the Peruvian Amazon is a true bucket list item. The Peruvian Amazon covers 60% of Peru and is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. Yet only 5% of Peruvians live in the Amazon rainforest, meaning much of it is still deeply wild.
During our trip to the Peruvian Amazon, we stayed in this incredible Amazon Lodge in the Tambopata National Reserve – one of the most accessible Amazon regions.
Through our excursions, we saw many species of monkeys, macaws, poisonous snakes, agouti, sloths, tarantulas, funnel spiders, wild pigs, and many species of birds, insects, flora, and fauna.
The photos below are just a small peek into the wonder we experienced in the Peruvian Amazon. I hope they can inspire your own visit – or at least offer some armchair travel!

Where to Stay in the Amazon in Peru
We stayed at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, an eco-luxury Amazon lodge in the Tambopata National Reserve. This is one of the most accessible Amazon regions in Peru. It’s only a 1-hour flight from Cusco!
I highly, highly, highly recommend Inkaterra. It was one of the best things we did during two months in Peru. Read my full review here!
Other Peruvian Amazon regions include Iquitos and Chachapoyas – both beautiful but much harder to reach, especially if you have limited time in Peru. We had two whole months in Peru and couldn’t even fit those regions into our itinerary!
I hope this blog post gave you a little peek into what it’s like to visit the Peruvian Amazon. It’s truly a bucket list activity that I hope you get the chance to experience!
