The Manu represents the most accessible part of the Amazon by land. About 10 hours from Cusco, which is already in the enchanting forest, after passing through countless different ecosystems. The view of the Gallito de la Rocha, with its striking plumage and mating calls, is the most precious sighting especially for lovers of bird watching.
Puerto Maldonado is the capital of the southern jungle reachable by land, river or air. The Tambopata National Reserve, located south of the Madre de Dios River, is characterized by an immense variety of flora and fauna. Puerto Maldonado is a lively city: the Plaza de Armas, the colorful market, the obelisk and the Monkey Island are just some of the attractions it offers.
Iquitos is a city in the heart of the northern Amazon, accessible only by river or air, which developed in the 19th century thanks to the extraction of rubber. The nearby Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve is the largest protected area in Peru and certainly worth a visit. For those who want to spend time in the city, we recommend visiting the Butterfly House, the Iron House, a large house with iron architecture designed by the famous French architect Gustav Eiffel and a walk to the obelisk in the Plaza Mayor.
