Preparation

Wear whatever is comfortable. It is recommended to have a sturdy pair of broken-in trail shoes, boots, or sneakers. Also a long sleeve shirt and long pants. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat it is also advised.

Not much, remember our trips are all inclusive. We do suggest you bring appropriate clothing to fit the season, swimwear, sandals, personal hygiene items and a day pack to carry extra snacks, personal prescription medicine (if that’s the case) and water. Mosquito repelent is a popular choice also.

We would highly appreciate if you would carry your own personal water container, to be refilled at any time at the lodge. This way we reduce the amount of plastic used.

Tours

All our tours finish at 5:00 pm (17:00), with the exception of Full Day tour which ends at 6:00 pm (18:00).

All our tours start at 9:00 am, with the exception of Full Day tour which starts at 8:00 am.

Starting from Iquitos we go on a private minivan for approx. 1 hours and 45 minutes heading south to Nauta (founded in 1830).

From Nauta, we take a private traditional motorboat cruising Marañon upriver. It takes around 3 hours to reach Santo Domingo community, where we hop down to stretch our legs and register with the SERNANP for our entry to a Natural Reserve of Peru.

From there it takes 30 minutes approx. entering Pacaya Samiria to reach Buenos Aires community, your first stop to get used to the jungle.

Buenos Aires is a village located inside Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. We sleep there the first night so we can rest after a long trip (5 hours approx.), eat, and start getting used to the pace of the jungle.

The house is a traditional house from the village specially conditioned to receive visitors, with 1 common room with beds (each one with a mosquito net), bathroom and dining place. There are lots of places to chill by the river, including hammocks.

You can interact with the people from the community just walking outside the house and around the village. You can meet friendly local people and get to interact with them and see how they live.

Inside Pacaya Samiria we look for spots where we set our camping base. After mounting our tents we set to explore the area with the guides. As all outdoor activities, there is the possibility to be in contact with insects, bugs, spiders, dirt, water, mud and all things abundant in nature. Don’t bring your new clothes.

Depending on the length of your tour, usually the next day after camping we prepare to pack things and travel on the motorboat to our next destination in the itinerary.

The lodge is located approx. 30 kilometers from Iquitos, between the Sinchicuy community and San Rafael. Following the Amazon river downstream, it takes approx. 1 hour and a half by motorboat.

The lodge has a capacity for 30 people, every room has a private bathroom with shower, including towels, and has walls covered by plastic nets that keep mosquitoes and bugs outside. There is a common area for dining where meals are served. Electricity is available from 18:00 to 21:00 every day so you can charge your phone and/or camera.

There is also a room full of hammocks where you can chill and enjoy the sounds of the rainforest.

Once you arrive at the lodge this would be used as a base for the different expeditions and activities that you are going to do.

Weather

Here it never rains for long periods of time due to the tropical climate. You will get to do all the activities included on the tour but the order could change depending on weather conditions. We do hike in the rain and any other weather conditions that nature decides to throw at us. After all, we’re going on adventures!
