Peru Trip for the Family

Jump to last reply


I'm working on arranging a trip to Peru for my wife's birthday. One of her bucket list items is to see the Macaws in Tambopata, so that's the main focus. It's going to be us and our 6yo daughter.

I'm working through Tambopata Research Center to arrange a stay at Refugio Amazonas for 3 nights and 4 days. Afterwards my wife is interested in visiting Machu Picchu. Has anyone done this transition? Is there any way to get there from Puerto Maldonado directly, or will we need to go back to Cuzco first? We'd only be staying for ~2 nights or so. I've read that one can take a bus to the ruins as well vs walking, which sounds like it'd be better for us since none of us are particularly athletic.

Also, we're an interracial lesbian couple. We're of course aware that PDA is not wise in general if we're uncertain of our situation, but if we keep our interactions platonic should we be fine?
