Then we will sail in a typical boat (pamacari) for about 10 minutes along the Nanay River downstream until we reach the confluence of the Nanay and Amazonas rivers. There you will be able to see the difference of color between the rivers, black water from Nanay River and brown or white water from Amazonas river.
We will continue our trip downstream for an hour and a half to the lodge with its characteristic rustic style.

Once in the hostel, you will be able to leave your belongings and get comfortable while we prepare to enjoy a nice regional lunch, typical of the Amazon jungle, cooked with products of the area and accompanied by fruits and natural juices.
After lunch, we will continue our trip to the island of the monkeys. There, you can interact directly with different species of primates such as the yellow tailed wooly monkey (Lagothrix lagotricha), black spider monkey (Ateles paniscus), saddle back tamarin (Saguinus fuscicollis), red howler monkey (Alouatta seniculus), pigmy marmoset (Cebuella pygmaea), monk saki (Pithecia monachus) and san martin titi monkey (Callicebus oenanthe); also parrots and a nice macaw (Ara macao). In addition, you can observe these species of monkeys feeding on natural varieties of plants and fruits that are found there.
After having a pleasant experience, we will leave the island in search of the river dolphins while we prepare to be part of the adrenaline filled experience and we will take a break to swim in the Amazon River, the longest and largest in the world, enjoying the beautiful sunset in the Amazon rainforest to later go to the lodge to enjoy a delicious dinner.
After dinner, we will do a night walk where we could see and identify reptiles, amphibians, mammals and arachnids of nocturnal habits; which are normally hidden during the day. Also we will enjoy a unique show provided by the Amazon, the deafening sound of the jungle at night.
It is time to rest and replenish all our energies.
Accommodation will be provided at the lodge.
We will start the day early in the morning to be able to enjoy the beautiful dawn on the Amazon River on board our boat. We will take advantage of the occasion and high bird activity at dawn to go birdwatching. We will take the time to relax, listen and enjoy the birds’ beautiful songs.

Our adventure day will continue with sailing for approximately 30 minutes to the Santa Maria de Fatima village.

The day will begin by enjoying a tropical breakfast, and then we will set sail in direction to the basin of the Yanayacu River, also known as the “mirror jungle” by the reflection of the water.
Already on the Yanayacu River, we will jump to the mainland to submerge ourselves in the “giant trees kingdom” and make an ethnobotanical walk. We will have the pleasure to see the Ceiba (Ceiba petandra), the largest tree in the Amazon jungle which exceeds 50 meters in height. We will continue our walk paying close attention to the environment, especially to the canopy of the forest trying to identify sloths and monkey species which will be eating and doing daily activities in their natural habitat.

Here you can be part of their customs, listen to their history, dialect, songs and of course practice their dances with them. It will be a unique experience, where you will also learn about the blowgun (wind weapon), which is their main hunting weapon. And while we’re at it why not take some practice shots? In addition, if you want you can buy handicrafts that they make with their own hands, contributing to preserve the community and its customs.
After living this unforgettable experience, we will partake in the adrenaline filled sportfishing of piranhas, among other species. Here our guide will make a brief demonstration and explain the correct and safe way of fishing, providing all the necessary equipment.
