Madre de Dios is a region in southeastern Peru, bordering Brazil and Bolivia. It belongs to the Peruvian Amazon. Madre de Dios is also the name of one of the rivers that run through the region: the Madre de Dios river becomes the Beni River in Bolivia and then the Madeira River in Brazil. The Madeira is a tributary to the Amazon River. The Peruvian Amazon is the second largest jungle after the Brazilian Amazon.
