Our program, Spanish in the Rainforest, offers the unique opportunity to study Spanish in the Peruvian Amazon, in the Tambopata National Park.
Tambopata is internationally acclaimed as one of the most bio-diverse areas on earth. It is a green paradise, particularly famous for its monkeys, giant river otters, black caimans, capibaras, tapirs and hundreds of bird species. The Tambopata Reserve is also known for its great wildlife spectacle – the world´s largest known mineral clay lick is found here, where hundreds of parrots, macaws and parakeets congregate daily to lick the clay. Explore with us this wonderful lowland and learn also about the native people who live in small communities along the Tambopata River.
The Sandoval Lake is an exceptional place to observe a wide diversity of wildlife including macaws, parrots, gazelles, common kingfisher, caimans, turtles and giant otters.
The big Macaw´s clay lick is located on the left side of the Tambopata River. It is famous for its great wildlife spectacle and is considered as the biggest on the Peruvian Amazon, for hundreds of parrots, macaws and parakeets met there to feed on them. Tambopata National Park comprises of 1.5 million hectares of the Madre de Dios and Puno regions.
