Visit a center that specializes in the breeding of paiches, fish also known as piracuru, as well as piranhas, macaws, lizards, and turtles. For a one-of-a-kind experience, try feeding these animals. Head to the great pond filled with the famous Victoria amazonica lily pads, the world’s largest leaves. Then, proceed to the Amazon viewpoint, which promises magical vistas over the legendary surrounding landscape. Enjoy some downtime on the hammocks, while taking in impressive views of the jungle and the Amazon River.

    wouldn't recommend this tour at all. At first when I got there there was no guide at least not mine since at the iquitos boulevard stand a lot of certified other guides. So first I needed to convince them that I not interested and then after 2 cals and 30min waiting a guy should up and ask one of the guides which were standing around and could speak english to do the tour. I also needed them to show for which tour I played and what they need to show me since it was just a guied which was waiting there. The tour just took 4hourea instead of 6 and the places were nice however not worth the price at all.
