After a warm welcome at the airport, you will start your way to the lodge, starting from one of the most exotic places in the jungle of Iquitos: Bellavista-Nanay port, where there is a colorful market where the famous suri or amazonian grub and the most curious fruits from this land are offered. A must for all travelers who want to cross the Amazon River.

Surrounded by exuberant vegetation and blue sky giving the appearance of a catalog photo, the fast-flowing and largest river in the world is very pleasing to the eye. A canoe, a peque peque (motorized canoe) and a large cargo ship are appearing on the scene, as if wanting to break the peacefulness of this natural wonder. However, there is nothing can distract you anymore.

When there is no rain, the water levels drop considerably so you can only sail the Amazon River for only 40 minutes. In the middle of the jungle, you will start the half hour walk through Once Amigos, path that will take you to the small village of Timicuro. Wooden houses with palm thatch roofs have been converted into shops, community centers and even a school, with a classic sports court that extends through the forest.

A peque peque (motorized canoe) awaits you at the end of the road to enter the dense jungle, where the sign of any kind of civilization begins to be lost. A few meters further, a maloca (ancestral long house used by the natives of the Amazon), announces that you are in Amak's land and part of our team welcomes you to start a unique journey in the Amazon.

Upon entering the maloca (ancestral long house used by the natives of the Amazon), which is used as a social area, you will be given a welcome drink and some indications for your stay. You can settle in the log cabins in order you can cool off and leave your luggage. Then we will get ready to sail on the Yanayaco (black river). Its black waters produce one of the most beautiful mirror effects, giving the sensation of being sailing in the clouds, which are reflected in its waters. The peace of this place is perfect to rest and make use of our homemade fishing rods. Let’s see if we catch any fish.

Lunch is a separate experience. Local flavors and exotic products invade our palate and captivate us. Our kitchen team impresses by reinterpreting classic recipes and surprising with signature dishes. However, the real protagonists are, once again, the native communities that produce the inputs. The result is not only pleasant for the dining companion but also for the economy of local people and the environment.

Then you will go to your cabin to cool off and pick up your luggage. Immediately, we will take a boat towards the Isla de los Monos (Monkey island), a completely green territory and inhabited by different primate species. Within its 450 hectares, there are more than 200 Andean saddle-back tamarins, bald uakaris and sloths in complete freedom. In addition, you will learn more about these species and you will be able to interact with the specimens recently arrived at this rescue center.

Then you will take the boat to Iquitos. The vibrant major city where the adventure ends.
