The upper Amazon basin is also known as “El Oriente”. Its very diverse range of species makes it the best biologically area to admire 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 canoe journeys, hikes and visits of the local community fill up an exciting day.
