EXPLORE

Birds:

Home to over a thousand bird species, the Amazon Rainforest is a dream came true for bird watchers. The huge Jabiru, that can measure up to 150 centimeters, the colorful blue and yellow Macaw, the prehistoric looking Hoatzin and the locally known “Tuki Tuki” are some of the incredible species that can be found all around the rainforest.

The Pacaya Samiria Natural Reserve remains as one of the few natural habitats where unimaginable birds fly unbothered by human intervention. Their loud and exotic cries can be heard in every corner of the rainforest, their echoes bouncing off the thick vegetation.

Mammals:

There is nowhere else in the world where pink river dolphins are found swimming freely in the Amazon’s waters. The exotic manatee, often called the “river elephant”, swims alongside them. On land, curious looking animals like the sloth and the capybara are a sight, and opportunity, that shouldn’t be missed. In the air, the long-nosed bat flies high, and in the trees hide the squirrel monkeys and the world’s smallest monkey; the pygmy marmoset.

Insects, Reptiles & Amphibiams

A safe haven for exotic reptiles. The rainbow boa, wrapped calmly around trees, and huge iguanas, roaming near by. In between leaves, if one looks carefully, hides the famous stick insect.

Resting on the river banks, guests could be lucky enough to spot the endangered black caiman, or the more common white caiman. The Amazon’s waters are the ideal home for the misunderstood piranhas, as well as the gigantic 200kg paiches. With our catch and release policy, fishing in the creeks and lagoons is an incredible opportunity for all guests.
