paseos_set09-024.jpg - Arriving to Amazonas Sinchicuy Lodge - Amazon River

DAY 01 : IQUITOS / AMAZONAS SINCHICUY LODGE
 
  • Our personnel will meet and greet you at the Iquitos Airport from where you will be transferred to the city. Along the way you will briefly sightsee the tourist highlights of Iquitos, this representative Peruvian jungle town that on the 19th Century turned from a small outpost to the most important port city in the Amazon basin, acquiring an outstanding cosmopolitan status during the so called “Rubber boom”.
  • You will be introduced to your expert tour guide and then continue to the river wharf from where the trip to our lodge begins. Sail on the Amazon, the world’s greatest river, onboard comfortable and safe boats. During the trip you will be able to see a marvelous panorama in which the magnificence of the Amazon makes its way through the exuberance of the jungle, where picturesque villages with their particular color and joy appear on the shores of the river.
  • Arrival in the Amazonas Sinchicuy Lodge (18 Miles NE from Iquitos). Our native-style built lodge is surrounded by trees, plants and flowers, a true tropical garden where birds and butterflies are abundant. While your expert naturalist guide explains about the lodge facilities and the activities to come, our staff will serve you with a refreshing “welcome drink” made with regional exotic fruit (camu-camu, cocona, copoazu, other). Room assignment according to reservation.
 
ECOCULTURAL Circuit (The Sinchicuy Watershed Ecosystem)
 
  • Short walk or canoe ride in the afternoon –depending on the season- to “Nuevo Peru” where a Yagua community has established. The Yaguas are one of the most ancient ethnic groups of the Amazon rainforest, discovered by Francisco de Orellana on his first Amazon River exploration. Visiting these friendly people will let you know their customs, see their unique apparel made of palm fibers and even try their “pucuna” or blowgun.
  • Lunch. Notice: Food speciality products in the Amazonas Sinchicuy include fruits from the river and the field. Filets of Dorado (Brachyplatystoma flavicans) garnished with Cocona Sauce (Sissiliflorum), fresh palm hearts, beans, fried cassava and banana are a treat. Do not doubt in asking the chef for the recipe!
  • In the afternoon, you will proceed with an ethnobotanic walk on a trail where you will be able to identify some species of the plant kingdom (Cat’s Claw, Sour Cane, Copaiba, Aguaje and even Ayahuasca, the hallucinogen vine).
  • Visit the “shaman’s cottage”, to find out about the particularities of the regional flora and its applications. 
  • Tour the Santa María del Ojeal farmlands where you will see an artisanal sugar cane squeeze and fruit orchard, walk around a typical village on the shores of the Amazon. You may interact with villagers as you pass by their typical houses, schools, churches and shops; you will also see the community’s sustained development projects that are possible by ecotourism support.
  • Returning to the lodge you will delight on the sight of a beautiful Amazon sunset.
  • Evening excursión…/Amazon legends…
  • Evening canoe ride or walk to sense the jungle after dark. Return to the lodge. Dinner.
  • After enjoying a delightful meal, the guide will amuse you with tales and legends from the rich Amazon myths. 
  • Also, if you desire, our personnel will share with you a time for music and singing.                     (L.D)
 
DAY 02 : AMAZONAS SINCHICUY / FLOOD ECOSYSTEM EXCURSION/NEYSSER CUSTODY CENTER /IQUITOS
 
  • Birdwatching: During morning early hours (between 5 and 6) is the most appropriate time to observe many of the bird species that feed on the river banks or in the local produce plantations nearby. Your guides will advice you regarding exact time of this activity.
  • Breakfast. Fresh fruit juices and jam from the local produce (orange, melon, cocona) along hot meals and beverages to start the day. After breakfast you will board the boat that will take you to the opposite side of the Amazon River or “huashalado” as it is locally known.
  • Circuit FLORA AND FAUNA (Ecosystem “Kingdom of the Giant Tress”)
  • During the trip Huashalado approximately 25 minutes (by boat), will be able to watch the wonderful river dolphins, main characters of stories and legends of the Amazon myths. By their nature somewhat shy, you must have patience and watch for sightings, with an unforgettable picture reward the effort.
  • After this memorable moment Huashalado we head to visit the Wildlife Project, recently listed as Fundo Neysser Custody Centre to observe and interact with some of the varieties of wild animals such as sloth bears, monkeys, achuñis, macaws , toucans, boas and lizards. It will be an interesting way to learn to appreciate and respect wildlife typical of our Amazonia.
  • After our educational tour, we went to the lodge for lunch 
  • A proper time we will take our boat to head to Iquitos, where a representative will be waiting to lead us to our hotel in Iquitos or to the airport.                                                                                                                     (B.L)
