The Peruvian Amazon Rainforest groups more than 2,000 species of birds and 250 aquatic species; this number increases seasonally with migratory birds from Patagonia and North America.
For this reason, we thought that it was necessary to give it the importance it deserves, making a particular program to observe birds with the help of expert guides in the area. There is no other paradise in the world like the Amazon River, for lovers of bird watching.
In the company of our specialized bird guide, you will visit the different habitats (floodplain forests, mainland forests, and islands), making the Muyuna Lodge birdwatching tour the most complete in the entire Amazon River. Also, you can take regular tours to swim where the dolphins are, observe monkeys, sloths, alligators, and other activities, at no additional cost.
Ornithologists from all over the world visit and recommend us, including Peter G. Kaestner, one of the best 5 in the world.

Muyuna Lodge is located within (near) the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo reserve, a protected area which has different microsystems, which are the habitat of all these bird species.
Authenticity in the excursions, animals in their natural habitat far from civilization, with low environmental impact working with the community, combined with adequate comfort.
Comfort and authenticity are possible within the Muyuna experience.
Muyuna and surroundings have never had cases of Yellow Fever, Dengue, Malaria, or Zika. The diseases are spread usually within a city.
Travelling to a nature spot is a safe activity against Covid-19 since all excursions are carried out in open spaces.
Muyuna can be visited all year round. The only thing which changes is the level of the water. Each period has its charm: during the low-water season (July-September), you can walk a lot more and there are sand beaches on the Amazon and fishing is easier; whereas during the high-water season, excursions are done with boats and canoes at a few meters from the canopy of the trees.
We are open 365 days all-year long.
