Extreme Peru: Part Six

Puerto Maldonado

The next morning, we got up early and caught our next flight to Puerto Maldonado, located in the Peruvian Amazon. The photographs above show the jungle during our arrival by air.

Motorcycles provide the primary means of transportation within the city of Puerto Maldonado. Many motocycles will stop to give you a ride and take you anywhere in town for only s/.1 (One Sol). Other taxi-like vehicles are really just motorcycles that have been converted into a three-wheel thing with a two-person back seat. Those ones charge s/.2 (Two Soles) to go anywhere in the city.
