Program

Day 1: Amazon River - Amazon Eco Tours & Lodge

You will be transferred to the river wharf from where the trip to the lodge begins. You will sail on the Amazon, the world’s greatest river, onboard comfortable and safe boats. During the trip, you will be able to see a marvelous panorama in which the magnificence of the Amazon makes its way through the exuberance of the jungle, where picturesque villages with their particular color and joy appear on the shores of the river. But on the way, you will make a stop to look for dolphins where Nanay River flows into the Amazon River.

You will then continue navigating to the eco-lodge, arriving in the Amazon Eco Tours & Lodge (35 kilometers northeast from Iquitos). The native-style built lodge is surrounded by trees, plants, and flowers, a true tropical garden where birds and butterflies are abundant. While your expert naturalist guide explains about the lodge facilities and the activities to come, you will wait for room assignment according to your reservation. After lunch, you will get ready for more activities and later enjoy a sunset on the Amazon (depending on the weather) followed by dinner. After that, you will enjoy a night excursion of jungle walk, looking for tarantulas, reptiles, amphibious, etc.

Day 2: Amazon Eco Tours & Lodge - Trapiche

You will have an early morning bird watching. Morning early hours (between 05:00 and 06:00) is the most appropriate time to observe many of the bird species that feed on the river banks or in the local produce plantations nearby. Your guide will advise you regarding the exact time of this activity. After breakfast, you will proceed with an ethnobotanical walk on a trail where you will be able to identify some species of the plant kingdom (cat’s claw, sour cane, copaiba, aguaje, and even ayahuasca, the hallucinogen vine). Besides that, you will also be able to observe species of fauna from this Amazon jungle.

Your lunchtime will be followed by a visit to the Trapiche, an artisanal sugar cane squeezer where you will prove the cane juice and see how local people get the derivatives and how it produces locally. Later, you will enjoy dinner with tales and legends from the rich Amazon myths told by the guides after.

Day 3: The Yaguas - Amazonian animals rescue center

After breakfast, you will continue to visit a native family called Yaguas. The Yaguas are one of the most ancient ethnic groups of the Amazon rainforest, discovered by Francisco de Orellana on his first Amazon River exploration. Visiting these friendly people will let you know their customs, see their unique apparel made of palm fibers, and even try their "pucuna" or blowgun.

You will then have lunch and then continue for a visit to a rescue center, a sanctuary of Amazonian animals where you will be able to see the famous anaconda, boa constrictor, matamata prehistoric turtle, alligators, some species of monkeys such as the spider monkey, the wooly monkey, capuchin monkey, some species of sloth, and species of exotic birds such as toucan, macaws, etc.

In the other hand, you will be able to have the chance to appreciate some varieties of medicinal plants already made in the local mode (cat's claw, chuchuasi bark, oje sap, dragon's blood, etc.) all these with great medicinal properties, and making a cheer with some of the exotic drinks to close the visit in there. You will return to the lodge afterward and enjoy dinner.

Day 4: Yanayacu Ecosystem

You will have breakfast first then go for a full day trip to Yanayacu Ecosystem where the "Kingdom of the Giant Trees" stay. You will have a jungle hike to see monkeys moving on the treetops or maybe a sloth hanging from a branch and thus mimetizing and making it almost impossible to be seen. There will also be iguanas and birds. You will have your lunch on board and then go back to the lodge for dinner.

Day 5: Yanayacu - Barrio Florido - Iquitos

After breakfast, you will visit a typical village on the shores of the Yanayacu, see the homes, schools, churches, shops and interact with its people, learn techniques of fishing and farming. Later you will have lunch and then sail down the Amazon to reach the town of Barrio Florido, a small coastal community located on the banks of the Amazon River that is engaged in fishing and agriculture. From this point, you will take a short walk of five minutes to reach the ranch and Pedrito where you will see alligators, aquatic plants (victoria regia) and the largest freshwater fish (paiche).
