ITINERARY: MACAW RESERVE AND JUNGLE ADVENTURE TRIP
Day 1: Puerto Maldonado - Pariamanu RiverAirport reception and transfer to “Puerto Pastora” to take our boat down the river Madre de Dios and Las Piedras River to the mouth of the river Pariamanu, where we have our first camp. At night, we will do the traditional "Caimaneo" that is, observe alligators on the banks of the river. During the trip, we will see a great diversity of flora and wildlife such as capybaras, birds such as eagles, vultures and parrots, alligators, giant trees and many other species.
Day 2: Pariamanu River - Macaw´s “Collpa”After breakfast, we continue our river journey for about three hours to reach the macaw clay lick place where we set up our second Pariamanu camp. Then we take a walk through the forest to appreciate the great diversity of medicinal plants and chestnut trees or Brazil nuts, birds and animals such as monkeys, peccaries and other species. Return to camp for lunch and take a short break. In the afternoon, we fish in the river for piranhas and at night visit a small mammal´s collpa (shelter). Return to camp.
Day 3: Macaw´s “Collpa” - Stones RiverAfter breakfast, we visit the “collpa” (shelter) of the Macaws and parrots. We observe the activity for just over two hours, we will see how the birds peck the clay cliffs that are rich in salts and minerals, especially calcium. The clay serves to neutralize the toxins that their bodies receive when they eat the green fruits. Then we return to visit a small lake that has a variety of birds and other species, hopefully we can see otters. We continue on to the island of monkeys and camp here. Optional “caimaneo” (alligator fishing).
