The program listed below is variable according to weather and water level.  We want to make your stay in MUYUNA unforgettable days in your life, so we will do all our best.  

1st day (lunch / dinner):

  • Transfer from the airport arrivals lounge to Iquitos (or hotel to the office) for shopping and last-minute coordination.
  • Transfer to the port.
  • Transfer in a fast boat for 3 hours, 140 kms.  upriver from Iquitos on the Amazon River.
  • Distribution of bungalow and guidance. Delivery of list of animals that have been previously seen in the area.
  • Lunch buffet.
  • Boat trip to Lake Sapote watching different birds, like parrots, jacanas, kingfishers, herons, panguanas, partridges, pigeons, cormorants, horned screamers, orneros, and then move to the other end of the Moena lagoon to see sloths and monkeys, as the night monkeys, squirrel and dusky titi monkeys, etc.
  • After watching a sunset over the forest of mirrors, back to Muyuna.
  • Dinner buffet.
  • In the evening, boat ride to see caimans, nocturnal birds and mammals.

2nd day (breakfast / lunch / dinner):

  • Breakfast buffet very early.
  • Leoncito Hike, where you appreciate the immense variety of flora around the Muyuna area. At this walk you can taste the water that Uncaria tomentosa (cat's claw) has within its vines - some say it can cure cancer and AIDS. You also be amazed at how huge the ceiba tree is. In addition, you will see the world's smallest monkey, the pigmy marmoset, and the squirrel and tamarin monkeys. If you're lucky, you'll see the howler monkey, whose deafening roar can be heard many miles away.
  • Lunch buffet.
  • Boat trips to the lakes Purura and Corrientes and catch different kind of fish, including the famous piranha (being more difficult in March, April and May). This is an area that has many strangler vines, being the favorite spot of the bird "hoatzin" or shansho. This colorful bird looks like a prehistoric bird because it has three claws on the middle joint of the wing.
  • Dinner buffet.
  • At night, you do a night walk in search of huge frogs, anaconda´s favorite food. In addition to seeing tarantulas, it is worth clarifying that despite the bad reputation, they are not dangerous to humans.

3rd day (breakfast / lunch):

  • Breakfast on the boat.
  • Using small boats will take you to the Amazon River, where you will experience the most magical moment of your trip, which is to swim in the same river where the pink and gray dolphins live.  You can see them, but don't expect to touch.  On the way back to the lodge, you will see the biggest aquatic plant in the world, the famous Victoria Regia. It is also easy to see iguanas.
  • Lunch buffet.
  • With your guide, you will be able to count all the animals seen in your Animal Check List.
  • Your experience of the jungle comes to an end and you will sail three hours back to Iquitos and take you to the hotel or airport.
