The sunset in the lake is amazing, also wildlife and the sound of night appear very fast. It is time to begin our return trek to the Madre de Dios River to return to Puerto Maldonado. The sounds of the amazon will accompany you during your walk in the amazon at dusk. During the night, while cruising back to Puerto Maldonado we will search for caymans in the Madre de Dios River.
