Our Philosophy is to making a difference to you and to the places you visit.
This was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken thanks to Puma Expeditions!! My husband and I traveled with a group of 9 total on our trip to Cusco, our main guide Jorge was excellent leader for the group! It was a trip filled with education and exploration. Our guide for our 2 days Machu Picchu adventure was Miguel. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Inca history.
Thanks to everyone at Puma Expeditions for the trip of a lifetime!!

Last year we went on a trip to the south of Peru and we were amazed by the countryside and the people there. The most impressive experience was our stay at the ARCC with Pepe and his family. It is around 4 hours away from Puerto Maldonado and also the trip to the lodge by car and boat is great. Pepe was eager to give us any information about the rainforest.
