Great discounts on Amazon Rainforest trips

Because we are grateful to our readers, we got some discounts from 5 to 12% off for most of the expeditions organized by two formal and reputable tour operators based out in Iquitos, Amazon Rainforest, Peru. Both tour operators are focused on real wildlife-spotting.

Curassow Amazon Lodge

  • Curassow Amazon Lodge. Located in the Tamshiyacu Tahuayo Nature Reserve, around 3 hours by river from Iquitos, this is an area plenty of wildlife according researchers of the Chicago Field Museum from the USA. Curassow Amazon Lodge is suggested for those travellers wishing to discover the real Amazon jungle and Amazon river with comfortable standards as woodden private rooms (bungalows) with en-suite bathrooms, 24-hour running water, full board and English-speaking guides. No electricity is provided to keep the experience as natural as possible.
Amazon Explorer
  • Amazon Explorer. This is an operator for people looking for something more real, more extreme. They camp in the middle of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve or perform adventure expeditions to remote jungle areas or native lands belonging to the non-touristic indigenous tribes Matses and Shuar, as well as adventures to the off the beaten track. If you are a survivalist or like a challenge, they are the one.

If you require information to plan your trip to Iquitos, airlines, accommodations and get the discounts, contact us ( mayantuperu -AT- ). This promo is available during 2015 and 2016.

The Amazon Rainforest in Google Street View

Google Street View is now in the Amazon Rainforest. As a result of a partnership with the Brazilian NGO Amazonas Sustainable Foundation (FAS), Google has taken pictures of around 500 km (more than 310 mi) of jungles, rivers and lagoons of the Amazon rainforest, from the forest floor to the upper canopy.

The first time that Google took pictures of the Amazon was in 2012. With this project everyone can visit this paradise from their computers.

An advantage for Google is that privacy won't be an issue in this project, but it is probable somebody will find unrecorded wildlife since distracted insects and birds are visible in the pictures.
