Full description
Set sail from the pier of the Iquitos Boulevard and cruise down the Itaya River to meet the Amazon River. Visit a center that specializes in the breeding of paiches, fish also known as piracuru, as well as piranhas, macaws, lizards, and turtles. For a one-of-a-kind experience, try feeding these animals. Head to the great pond filled with the famous Victoria amazonica lily pads, the world’s largest leaves. Then, proceed to the Amazon viewpoint, which promises magical vistas over the legendary surrounding landscape. Enjoy some downtime on the hammocks, while taking in impressive views of the jungle and the Amazon River. Then, take a 15-minute walk into the jungle to see the gigantic and mythical Lupuna tree, said to possess magical properties and considered the protectors of the jungle. Before returning to the city, visit the Serpentary, where you can see the anaconda’s cage.

Pros: - Nelson was a very friendly and approachable guide. We had great fun with him. On the way to the individual stations he was able to tell us a lot about the region and the jungle (in English and Spanish). - We were lucky to be the only guests on the tour so the price was good for a "private tour". Additional costs for entrance fees were 40 soles per person. - Due to the very humid climate, the length of 6 hours is ideal. So we were free to organize the second half of the day for ourselves. Criticism: The last station (the anaconda's cage) is very sad to watch. It is a kind of zoo in which various jungle animals, including anaconda, are on display and you can "play" with them. The entry of 20 soles should be omitted or an alternative should be offered and not supported in this way of dealing. Saludos, Elias & Jasmin de Alemania

Was a great day in the jungle with our guide Nelson. The highlights for me were the drive on the Amazon, the jungle hike and the viewpoints. On the recommendation of our guide Nelson, we went to the floating restaurant. In total we were on the road for almost 8 hours. Criticism: In my opinion, all entries could be included at this price.
