The rout will begin in the morning from the airport or your accommodation in a private vehicle towards the port of Bellavista Nanay. During the journey, our guide will make a brief historical review of the city of Iquitos and about the activities to be done during the day.
Once at the port of Bellavista Nanay, you can see and appreciate its market where merchants from nearby communities sell their products. 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 the Nanay River and brown or white water from the Amazon River.
Continuing our trip downstream for one hour and 30 minutes, you will enjoy the beautiful landscape and have the possibility to see the gray (Sotalia fluviatilis) and pink river dolphins (Inia geoffrensis), diversity of birds such as the yellow billed tern (Sternula superciliaris), olivaceous cormorant (Phalacrocorax olivaceus), great egret (Ardea alba), snowy egret (Egretta thula) and ring kingfisher (Megaceryle torquata) among many others, as well as some rural towns and villages on the banks of the river.
We will arrive to the community of San Rafael where we will visit the Morphosapi butterfly farm, where you can observe a wide diversity of butterfly species, learn about their metamorphosis process and also the different stages of their life cycle (larva, chrysalis or pupa and adult).
To continue our journey we will meet some members of the Yaguas tribe. 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, which is their main hunting weapon, and why not practice aiming as well while we are there? In addition, if you want you can buy handicrafts that they make with their own hands, contributing to preserve the community and its customs.
Now it's time to take a break and enjoy the delicious typical lunch of the Amazon jungle on board the boat, accompanied by fruits and natural juices.
Once lunch is finished, we will continue our trip for 30 minutes to the island of the monkeys. There, you can interact directly with different species of primates such as the yellow tailed wooly monkey (agothrix lagotricha), black spider monkey (Ateles paniscus), saddle back tamarin (Saguinus fuscicollis), red howler monkey (Alouatta seniculus), pygmy 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 naturally on varieties of native plants and fruits.
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 sport fishing 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.
Before finishing our tour you can have the pleasure of jumping and swimming in the Amazon River, the longest and largest in the world, enjoying the beautiful sunset in the Amazon rainforest.
The day will end arriving at the port of Bellavista Nanay, from where you will be transferred to our office.
