Where We Do It
We are located in the southeast Amazon rainforest of Peru, province of Tambopata, region Madre de Dios. The capital is Puerto Maldonado city in which the rivers Tambopata and Madre de Dios join their waters.
An hour down the Madre de Dios river by motorboat with no road access, about 28 km from the city, on the right bank of the river, you arrive to the entrance of Taricaya Reserva Ecologica. With almost 500 hectares of protected rainforest, we border the Tambopata National Reserve, a natural protected area by the government identified by many scientists as one of the most biodiverse areas in the world.
Taricaya Reserva Ecologica houses the Taricaya Research Center with different research stations and facilities for each project and the Taricaya Lodge with facilities including shared cabins and common areas to live in the jungle as a community. We also have a set of interconnected trails that cover the entire reserve for research and monitoring of the area.
