The Amazon River gives the Peruvian rainforest its name. It was discovered by Francisco de Orellana in 1541 and it is the largest and mightiest river in the world. Its watercourse reaches a width of 4,000 meters in some sectors making it look like a sea. All the rivers that have their origin on the eastern slope of the Andes are tributaries of the Amazon River. They form swamps, marshes and channel labyrinths. The Peruvian rainforest has an area of 8o million hectares where many flora and fauna species inhabit. It is said that its former inhabitants called the Amazon Paranaguasú that means “great river”. It is also said that the river’s name is product of the union of two indigenous words ama (to break) and zona (canoe): canoe-breaker.

Iquitos, the capital of Loreto department, is on the Amazon riverside and it is surrounded by other rivers like the Ninai and the Itaya rivers. In Iquitos, we can find native communities such as the Cocamas, the Boras, the Ticuna and the Witotos. The city was founded by the Jesuit José Bahamonde in 1747.

It is an exotic, hot city with an impressive vegetation and it is the entry point to navigate on the Amazon which means getting in contact with nature.

Peruvian Amazonia

The reserve is located in the department of Madre de Dios, Tambopata province. It has 274,690.00-ha area and it is one of the best places to discover the Amazonia since it has one of the highest biodiversity indexes in the world: 632 bird species, 169 mammal species and 1,200 butterfly species. It limits on the south with the Bahuaja Sonene National Park, both constitute a very important conservation area in Peru.

The Sandoval Lake, just half an hour by boat from Puerto Maldonado, is the park’s main attraction. We can find lodges to stay in and an observation tower to have a panoramic view of the huge landscape, which is home to macaws and river otters.

The collpas (clay licks) at the rivers´ shores, are also this place’s attractions. Hundreds of macaws, hawks and parrots gather between 5:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. to eat mineral salts.  There are also bush or inland collpas where we can see (usually at night) collared peccaries, white-lipped peccaries and South American tapirs. The biggest inland collpa in the whole Amazonia is the collpa Colorado.

The Ese Eja ethnicity, that is currently divided in three communities: Palma Real, Sonene and Infierno, has lived in Tambopata from ancient times and they know the reserve to the millimeter. The Infierno community works with private companies to offer accommodation and several tourist services such as activities and guided tours.

A long time ago, Cusco’s Main Square was the central point of the Inca Empire. The four roads that linked the whole Inca Empire met at this point. The Inca Empire spread from Ecuador, part of Colombia to the north of Chile and Argentina and included the entire territories of Peru and Bolivia. The ruins, temples, churches, mansions and the varied architecture make Cusco a showcase that displays all the cultures and eras from our country: Pre-Inca, Inca, Colonial and Republican.

Cusco is an unforgettable destination, full of history and culture and a splendid heritage. It is a mandatory destination for everyone visiting Peru.

Cusco is as well the starting point for the tours to the Machu Picchu Inca citadel.
