The upper Amazon basin is also known as “El Oriente”. Its diverse range of species makes it the best biological area to admire the astonishing flora and fauna and is the home of the threatened black caiman, giant river otter, jaguars, spider monkeys, macaws, ocelots and millions of other species. This part of the Amazon has become accessible so one can explore the rivers and the trails of the forests, allowing for the chance to see a great variety of wildlife. Early risers can go bird watching for the vibrant colored birds. During the day one can enjoy canoe journeys, hikes and visits of the local community.
