It's advertised as 5 days, but it was more like 2 days. Day 1 was a 9pm overnight bus from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado. Day 2 consisted of me sitting around at their office for 5 hours while waiting for the other travelers to arrive. I met the Australian owner when I arrived at his office and, while he was very nice, I felt I was listening to a sales pitch rather than having a conversation with him. I went to his neighbors home, Belinda, where I had a great breakfast you pay for it and good conversation. She has an interesting story to tell! At 1 pm we take a boat to the reservation and the jungle experience begins here. The bungalows were very comfortable, clean, and netted to keep bugs out. The activities, such as the caiman search, jungle walk, canopy walk, ect, were a lot of fun and I learned a lot! The tour guides spoke great English and really tried to make our experience a good one. The conservation area itself was disappointing as it felt more like a zoo than a rehabilitation site. Other than the butterflies, we did not see any of the animals caged here in the wild and I believe this has to do with the constant tourism in the area. The cook was fantastic and they accommodated to my vegetarian diet AND it was tasty! On Day 4, we left the reservation at 8am and arrived back to PM around 9am or so. My bus did not leave until 9pm so I sat around the office most of the time and wandered the town for 2-3 hours. Day 5 was the overnight bus home.
Overall, the 2 days I actually spent in the jungle was great! For the cost though, I am not happy about my itinerary and would not recommend it. Many other companies offer the same package and activities besides the animal rehab and plant conservation portion for a much lower price, better use of time. I would look at other options before booking this.
