Majestic River at Muyuna Lodge (5 Days)

Tour Majestic River at Muyuna Lodge 5 Days

Muyuna Lodge was designed and built by people from the native community of San Juan de Yanayacu keeping strict relation to the architecture. Since the level of the Amazon and its tributaries can vary a few feet, is constructed on stilts.

Muyuna is located in the Yanayacu river banks, up the Amazon River, at southeast from Iquitos City, very close to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Thanks to the remoteness of the lodge, in Muyuna we guarantee observation of birds, monkeys, sloth, dolphins, fish, caimans, butterflies, etc. in their natural habitat.

It is an exciting tour in Iquitos. Canoe ride, fish for piranhas, nocturnal excursions, visit to different lakes to see ornamental fish, bird watching, special devices to the pink and gray Amazon River dolphins.
