Full description
PICK UP Hotel or Airport with a member of the YAKUMAMA AMAZON TOURS team (naturalist guide) who will be there waiting to receive you, then we will take a private car (1 hour ½, approx.) to go to the city of Nauta, (Nauta port located on the Marañón River), then we will take our typical wooden-roofed boat to navigate approximately 2 hours to the Lodge, along the Marañón, Amazonas, Ucayali and Yarapa rivers, (our lodge is located on the Yarapa River). During this first navigation, you may see some activities of river birds, dolphins and river people. LUNCH TIME: Table Service / Self-service Buffet. CULTURAL VISIT TO THE LOCAL RIVER VILLAGE - The river people always live in small villages along the river, because the river is their main way to go everywhere, to get fish to eat and sell, some villages do not have treated water at home so sometimes they get water from the river or from the rain, this jungle dweller tries their best to live here by getting the supplies from nature and others make very beautiful handicrafts to get some money. SWIMMING / WATCHING PINK AND GRAY DOLPHINS - Combined with Sunset! SUNSET ON THE RIVER -Do you think it is almost impossible to see a sunset and not dream? Do not lose hope!!! You will fully enjoy the sunset in nature, jumping between dew-covered trees or sailing along a seemingly calm river called the Amazon. A perfect moment in between (5:45 to 6:15) to appreciate one of the most impressive flashes of sun on the mighty Amazon River and also a splendid glow in the sky. This is the most relaxing way to end the day, you can take a bottle of wine with you and toast to being in the Amazon, a wonderful place enjoying the breathtaking view and the refreshing breeze, also during this excursion... find some animals like dolphins grays or the pink, a small flock of birds (egrets, small parrots, black sniffers, terns... or maybe on the way back to the lodge you may suddenly find an alligator... who knows... anyway , the jungle is a place full of surprises, just enjoy it.This excursion can be combined with another connected to the big river and last longer and enjoy more time to the fullest.Visit and learn the local culture, beliefs, lifestyle, dialects, education , etc. is a way to interact and feel the real life of the people of the Amazon, children are always happy to meet new friends from all over the world and if you brought some school supplies this is the time to give them away and h make them smile and light up their happiness SWIMMING / WATCHING PINK AND GRAY DOLPHINS - Combined with Sunset! DINNER TIME: Table Service / Self-service Buffet.
