Testimonials
Inca Trail

I would like to express my deepest and most sincere gratitude to Sap Adventures for an amazing and unforgettable trek along the Inca Trail. From the first email before our trip until our departure from Cusco, everyone at SAP took excellent care of my mom, my aunt, and me, but I especially want to thank our guides: Braulio and Franklin. We literally would not have made it to Machu Picchu without them.
We knew going into the trek that we would be the slowest of the group, but we were unprepared for the altitude sickness and exhaustion. After the first half hour of hiking, we only saw the rest of the group and Braulio at a few rest stops, meals, and in the evenings. When we did see Braulio, he was a wonderful guide; very knowledgeable, outgoing, friendly, and concerned for our well being. At Machu Picchu especially, he demonstrated an extensive archaeological understanding, and my only regret is that we were not fast enough to spend more time with him and the rest of the group. Franclin stuck with us at the back for the entire trek, and I sincerely believe that it was only his patience, encouragement, and care that got us to Machu Picchu.
Beginning on the first day, my aunt unfortunately had a hard time and struggled with altitude sickness and exhaustion. As would become our trend, darkness fell before we reached camp, and we needed to stop every few feet to take a break. But Franclin, who had been with us all day, kept up his enthusiasm and encouragement. Braulio and several porters, despite having already reached camp and seen to the needs of the rest of the group, returned to us for the last part of the trek to light our path and help us for the rest of the way to camp. Once there, they administered oxygen to my aunt and made sure we were as comfortable as possible.
At the beginning of the second day we were amused to see that we had been assigned our own personal porter, Mario, who quietly shadowed us like a guardian angel for all of the second and third days just in case we needed more help. Despite having to take care of three rather slow hikers, Felipe and Mario never complained. I cannot possibly express my appreciation enough. Felipe treated my mom and aunt as if they were his own much-loved and respected mother and aunt, and helped keep my worry for them at bay by pointing out orchids, describing the Inca ruins, and trying to teach me Quechua.
In addition to Felipe, Braulio, and Mario, the other Sap Adventures porters, cooks, and coordinator all helped make the trip amazing.

PUERTO MALDONADO

This is the least populated territory in Peru, with only 600,000 people living in its 80,000 kM2 (30,880 sq miles) of jungle area. Its capital Is a riverside city known as Puerto Maldonado with 25, 000 Inhabitants.

Gold panning on the Tampobamba and Madre de Dios rivers, and the latex boom at the end of the past century, determined the foundation of the city of Puerto Maldonado., Today, Madre de Dios, the old Inca Antisuyo, is still what It has been -for centuries- for all adventure lovers: a virgin and frontier land full of mysteries.
Due to the fact that Its virgin forest covers 98% of the territory, Madre de Dios has the most varied bio-diversity of the world.

Puerto Maldonado is one of the most important cities of the Southern jungle. It sits on the banks of the Madre de Dios river, which connects it with Rivera Alto in Bolivia (a 5-hour trip to the border, by river) and with Assis, in Brazil (242 km/150 miles),
The department's capital is a dynamic, young and bustling frontier city. The main economic activities are forestry and gold panning, although farming and the ecological tourism are being developed.

The Manu, Tambopata-Candamo and Pampas de Heath reserves cover 3'500,000 jungle hectares (8'645,000 acres), the largest and richest blo-diversity of the world. They keep unique flora and fauna species, impossible to find elsewhere, including 2,500 flower varieties, more than 1,000 birds (10% of the world's species,) 900 butterfly species and more than 20 kinds of monkeys.

Near Puerto Maldonado, there are several attractions such as the Sandoval and Valencia lakes, next to the Bolivian border (by river, 4 hours from the city), These wonderful places give the tourist the opportunity to fish, be close to nature, and be in contact with native communitie
