Delve Deep into the Amazon Rainforest

A breathtaking journey unlike anything you’ve experienced awaits when you travel to the Amazon Rainforest with Good Life Expeditions. If you’re spending time in Lima or Cusco, either vacationing or on a MEDLIFE Service Learning Trip, the Amazon Rainforest is a great 4-day add-on, offering the chance to explore the incredible Tambopata National Reserve, deep in the forest.

Travel Responsibly with Good Life Expeditions

Good Life Expeditions is a responsible travel agency and operator. Our main goal is to create authentic, life-changing, and socially responsible experiences for travelers, regardless of budget or travel style. But, more importantly, we want to inspire travelers to give back to the communities they visit and people they encounter.

When you choose to travel to the Amazon Rainforest with Good Life Expeditions, take confidence that you’re making a direct and positive contribution to the places and people you encounter. Our carefully chosen partners in the Amazon run sustainable, eco-friendly lodges, that were first established as research stations for scientists studying macaws and other wildlife. Protection and conservation of the Amazon are central to their mission. They also work closely with the local community of Infierno, and one of the lodges is actually owned by the community, ensuring that they benefit from tourism.


Add the Amazon Rainforest to your Itinerary

Surrounded by incredible natural wildlife on the Amazon Extension, you’ll spot howler monkeys, wild peccaries, sloths, and strange creepy crawlies by night. With expert guides, you’ll spend each day exploring the rainforest by foot and canoe, in search of the incredible flora and fauna of the jungle. Keep your eyes peeled along the riverbanks for a sight of the majestic but elusive jaguar!
