Commonly Asked Questions
Environment & Best Time to Visit
There is no wrong time to visit the amazon Rainforest and we are open year round. Visiting the rainforest during the dry or wet season comes with its own set of advantages and challenges. The dry season run from late April through early November and the wet season from november through April. It can change by several weeks depending on the year. Here are some pros and cons for both seasons:
  • Dry Season: The dry season from late April through early November, typically brings clearer skies and paths are generally drier, making it easier to explore the rainforest without dealing with too muddy conditions. It still rains periodically. With fewer water sources available, wildlife tends to concentrate around remaining waterholes and streams, providing excellent opportunities for spotting animals. Dry season can also bring both higher and lower temperatures, potentially leading to discomfort for those not accustomed to the heat or cold fronts. Some waterfalls and rivers may have lower water levels, impacting the overall aesthetic experience. It's a good time to see birds and mammals, reptiles sightings are a bit less frequent.
  • Wet Season: The rainforest is at its most vibrant during the wet season, with lush, green foliage and blooming flowers creating a picturesque environment. Waterfalls and rivers are in full flow, providing a breathtaking spectacle and enhancing the overall visual and auditory experience. the sun still shines often but heavy rainfall are frequent and lead to muddy and slippery trails, making hiking and trekking more challenging but always enjoyable. Reptiles are usually more visible; although birds and mammals sightings remain frequent.
Ultimately, the best time to visit depends on individual preferences and the specific experiences one is seeking. Some travelers may appreciate the lushness of the wet season, while others may prefer the clearer conditions of the dry season.
Alta Sanctuary is located several hours from the nearest town, in pristine primary rainforest that has been standing for thousands of years. It's this seclusion that enables incredible wildlife sightings as well as a truly immersive jungle experience. Your stay enables our team to continue to keep it this way, minimizing our footprint and helping our conservation efforts to keep logging, poaching and mining away from the region.
Access & Transportation
No. You are responsible for booking your travel itinerary to and from Puerto Maldonado, Peru. If you have dates in mind, please make sure you are in Puerto Maldonado early morning so we can pick you up for the journey to the jungle. For your return, anticipate a late arrival to Puerto Maldonado as well as getting out of the jungle can take some time. We recommend a hotel night in Puerto Maldonado before and after your treehouse stay to guarantee a timely experience.
We pick you up from a location of your choosing in Puerto Maldonado, then we first drive through the jungle to the river, and then finally take a motorized boat to our property and the treehouse. Its a very fun, approximately 4hr trip. It can be longer (or shorter) depending on road and river conditions, but don't worry, our team has you covered, and we consider it to be an amazing experience in itself.
This depends on the time of year, length of your stay, and activities you plan to do. It is the Amazon Rainforest, so bring clothing you feel comfortable wearing in hot, damp weather.
In general, we recommend for you to consider bringing the following items:
  • Lightweight, Moisture-Wicking Clothing: Long-sleeve shirts and pants to protect against insects and sun, and T-shirts and shorts for warmer times. Breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics are strongly recommended.
  • Rain Gear: A high-quality rain jacket or poncho. The Amazon can experience sudden downpours.
  • A spare pair of shoes: in our experience, if it's raining it's nearly impossible to keep shoes dry, even waterpoof ones. So we recommend to bring two pairs, and make sure they are comfortable and ideally dry fast.
  • Hat and Sunglasses: Wide-brimmed hat and polarized sunglasses for sun protection.
  • Insect repellent and sunscreen are important shield against the intense tropical sun and insects.
  • Swimwear: you will likely have the opportunity to bath in the river, so we recommend swimming gear
  • Backpack: a small, lightweight daypack for excursions and carrying essentials.
  • Binoculars, camera and other electronics: to view and capture the stunning wildlife and lush scenery around you, we provide binoculars for your use, but don't hesitate to bring your favorite camera, binoculars and other accessories.
  • Headlamp or flashlight: a must for night walks, we recommend a headlamp if you possess one. Our team can provide some if you don't.
  • Personal toiletries: we provide all the necessary amenities you'd expect from a luxury hotel, but you should feel free to bring your personal toiletries. We ask you to prefer biodegradable products as we have an eco friendly waste management system.
  • Prescription medications: Ensure you have an adequate supply for the duration of your stay.
  • Cash and cards: there is no ATMs, so you may carry some cash for tips if you'd like, but your stay is inclusive so you don't have to.
