Fodor's Review

The best view in Puerto Maldonado is from this grassy plaza one block northeast of the Plaza de Armas. The park is dedicated to Miguel Grau, a Peruvian naval officer in the 19th century. But the attraction isn't the bust of him erected there: rather it's the sweeping view of the Rio Madre de Dios, and the rain forest that lines its banks.
