How many days?

3 Nights - 4 Days

Day 1 Wayruru

After welcoming you at the airport we take a taxi down the road leading to Terapacá where we will begin an ecological walk of 2 hours in the jungle to the indigenous Wayruru community. During the walk you will learn about timber trees, medicinal plants of the region and the various indigenous cultures and their customs practices.

Upon reaching the Maloca or traditional longhouse, known to the natives of the region as a place where meetings and traditional festivals are held, you will be received by the shaman or leader in charge. He will speak about the importance of this place within the tribe and the sacred substances that are used there such as Mambe, Coca, Rape, Ambil and ground tobacco. You can then enjoy a traditional lunch. This is followed by a visit to the “chagra”, the place where traditional crops such as cassava, banana, pineapple, the coca plant and tobacco are grown. You will get the chance to learn about regional cuisine while preparing dinner with community members. After dinner we can go on a night walk to see bioluminescent mushrooms and other fascinating animals and plants.

Accommodation:  hammocks or a cabaña (hut)

Day 2 Arara

After breakfast we cross the Amazon River in a “Peke Peke” (a small wooden boat) over to Peru where we will visit the Natamu Nature Reserve, home of the indigenous Chinería community who live along the banks of the river with the same name. At Natamu, we will go on a nature walk, if the water level permits it. If the water level is too high we will explore the jungle by canoe or kayak. We can visit the indigenous community, go fishing or simply relax and soak in the beauty of the rainforest. After dinner we can go on a night walk or try and spot Caymans on a night boat trip.

Accommodation:  hammocks or a cabaña (hut)

We can also head to the viewpoint – a fantastic place for photos of the village.

After a typical lunch at the Las Magaritas restaurant we can take a boat to visit and swim in the Tarapoto Lake about 20 minutes from the village, go Piranha fishing or loom out for pink and grey dolphins. We end our third day with dinner at Doña Luz or we can help you explore some typical local street food
