Some things to note

Some things to note icon

Please note:

  • Due to luggage restrictions, on day 1 you will need to pack a small bag only for your three night stay in the Amazon Jungle. Your remaining luggage will be stored in Puerto Maldonado until your return. Electricity is at a premium in the Amazon and you may only have access to power for a couple of hours a day. If you require a battery at night for medical reasons the lodge hotel can provide this but there may be an additional small charge for this service.
  • On day 9 you will need to pack an overnight bag (maximum of 5 kilograms per bag) for your overnight stay in Machu Picchu. Due to limited space on the trains you are unable to take your main suitcase, it will however, be transferred to the hotel in Cusco so it is there for when you arrive. We suggest you bring an umbrella, spray jacket and strong insect repellent with you. Our accommodation will also have its own hot springs, so you may also like to bring your swimwear.
