AMAZON EXPERIENCE | 3 DAYS 2 NIGHTS

EXPLORING THE BUFFER OF THE PACAYA SAMIRIA

$360 Per Person

Based on a group of 2 people minimum

Puerto Miguel is a nice, quiet, welcoming and well organized village that belongs to the Cocama tribe, an even though they lost the tribe customs, they still have many interesting things that our Guide will explain us when we visit them in the afternoon. This would also be a good opportunity to see if someone in the village has any sloth so that you can hold it and take some pictures. You will love this cutie animal.

 

Hoping to have a wonderful sunset, we all will head to the entrance of the Yarapa river to see and swim around the pink dolphins while enjoying the sunset.

 

Usually we have a night hike after dinner. Tarantulas, scorpions, frogs, snakes, hundreds of bugs and some other night creatures await for us. Be ready to find them. Catch a giant bullfrog is the goal. A Price will be given to the one who catches the biggest one.

Intinerary

Day one: Our trip starts at 9:00am. We can either pick you up from your hotel or from the airport, in case you are arriving on the same day the tour starts. A car ride of around 1.5 hours will end in Nauta City, which is the only town connected to Iquitos via highway. Once in Nauta, a nice, confortable and typical boat will be ready to lead us to the Yarapa Community Reserve, the buffer area of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, where our Eco-lodge is set, in the middle of a wonderful rainforest.

Depending on the season and the weather conditions, 2.5 hours of boat ride is needed to get to the Lodge. The borders of the Pacaya Samiria will let us enjoy the beauty of some colorful birds, some river dolphins and luckily a sloth hanging from a Munguba tree - Pseudobombax munguba.

Day two: This is just the beginning of another promising day. Our Guide will have the boat ready to depart to a bird watching morning. Our Official Guide is going to explain us about the different species of birds we find during the excursions. But not just birds shall be found, also several monkeys that are used to live in the bushes and on the cope of some trees by the riverside.

A good coffee, tea, bacon, some sausage, fried eggs, plantains, fish or something else shall be served for breakfast.

 

Then we will go on a hike not close from the lodge to learn about the plants that are used as home remedies and also the timber trees.

 

Return to the lodge will be before lunch.

Fishing gears, a confortable boat and couple hours in the afternoon are just what we need to go fishing for piranhas. We are so sure that also catfish, shad, brycon, sardines will also be caught, but the goal is to catch piranhas. All the fish we catch will be served for dinner.

 

All you need now is a good headlight or torch to go caiman hunting. Some lagoons nearby are the habitats for these animal and we expect to catch them to take some pictures and release them.

 

Day three: After enjoying breakfast, we should go for our last excursions to see and learn about lily pads, the largest aquatic plant in the world. There is also another gigantic plant but in the ground, that is the Ceiba tree or Kapoc tree. The tallest tree in the Amazon jungle.

We will also see it.

 

Our last lunch in the jungle awaits for us in the lodge. This is a good time to debrief what we have done during these days that passed by so quickly.

Our luggage and belongings need to be packed to start our trip back to the city.

 

Note: All our programs are flexible and depend on weather conditions.

         Our arrival in the city of Iquitos will be around 6pm
