Day 2 : Heliconia Amazon River Lodge (A, D)
Transfer to the Port of Bellavista where you will embark one of our fast boats that will transfer you to the Heliconia Amazon River Lodge through the Amazon River.
During the tour you will be able to observe the convergence of the murky brown waters of the Amazon River with the dark waters of the Nanay River. Enjoy the wonderful landscapes of the Peruvian jungle accompanied by the small rural houses located on the banks of the rivers.
After a few minutes of travel, we will make a short stop at Monkey Island, where endangered species of monkeys of the Peruvian Amazon are protected and conserved. The objective of this Organization is to show its visitors the work that is carried out day by day in the process of reintegrating primates to their natural habitat, as well as the development of their survival instinct in nature. Appreciate the different species of monkeys that are completely free within this reserve; without cages, where their stay will depend on the development of their ability to re-adapt to nature.
Then we will continue our tour for approximately 60 minutes by boat. Upon arrival at the lodge, our staff will welcome you and receive a refreshing fruit juice from the region. Then, you will proceed with the check-in and location in your respective room, so that you can refresh yourself and immediately after go through the lodge restaurant and thus enjoy your first Amazonian meal.
In the afternoon, start your first excursion accompanied by our experienced guides walking through the Yanamono reserve, for an approximate time of 2 hours. There they will teach you to identify various species of flora such as; heliconia flowers, medicinal plants and giant trees. During the journey you will be able to observe various species of birds such as the Turkey Vulture (Cathartes Aura), Black Fronted Nunbird (Monasa-Atia), and with good luck you may be able to observe a family of small monkeys such as the marmosets (saguinus fusicollis), the Titi ( Callicebus Mollock Mollock) and the squirrel monkey (Saimiri Boliviense).
We will depart back to the lodge to enjoy some hours of rest and relaxation, and also be captivated by its first sunset in the Amazon.
