Iquitos – City Tour – Momon River – Pilpintuwasi – Serpentarium – Amazon Lodge
Our English speaking guide will pick you up at the airport or your hotel, for a city tour of Iquitos – a truly unique city that is as beautiful as it is isolated. Featured on the tour are the principal attractions of Iquitos including the Main Square, the Cathedral, The Boulevard, and the Cast Iron House built by Eiffel (Yes, that Eiffel). Putting the city behind us we board our speedboat for a trip up the Nanay and Momon rivers. On our way to our lodge, we will visit the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm. We then return to our boat and travel a bit further downriver where we visit the fascinating Serpentarium to see snakes and other exotic animals like the ocelot and the sloth. From here, the tour goes directly to our lodge where we arrive around midday and are greeted with a welcome drink made of local tropical fruits to help quench our thirst after a full morning of travel. With your thirst quenched and after relaxing a bit a delicious buffet lunch is served featuring many local dishes and flavors. After lunch, there is time for relaxing by the pool or in the outdoor hammocks. The evening activity is a night canoe ride on the river to silently listen to animal voices and sense the jungle wildlife.
