Trips to Peruvian Amazon

Trips to Peruvian Amazon

Postby Mike@AmazonAquatics » 2008-01-09 21:55

If anyone might ever be interested in a trip to the Peruvian Amazon please let me know. I have a good friend in America who runs a company called Margarita Tours who operate a couple of boats out of Iquitos.

You really get to do what you want on these trips with Margarita Tours, if you can get enough people together you can fill your own boat and literally go wherever you want with it. The Peruvian Amazon is amazingly diverse and beautiful, and most importantly largely unspoilt with no big settlements, there is no where else like it.

If you go on one of the fish collecting trips you will spend a lot of time marching around the jungle and wading in ponds and rivers with nets catching all kinds of tropical fish (Corys, Plecos, Tetras, Apistogrammas, Feral Discus, Cichlids, Pike Cichlids, Knifefish, Puffers, Piranha, etc...). And you get to see all kinds of wildlife like: Pink River Dolphins, Wild Macaws, Caymen, Turtles, Snakes, Tree Frogs, Tarantulas etc... Also, you get to spend time with the local people and see some of their traditions, see some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet and say you've been to one of the most remote parts of the Amazon. You can have fish you collect shipped back to the UK for you by one of the big fish exporters in Iquitos, but it is expensive and (to my mind) could be quite cruel. Probably only worthwhile if you own a shop or like big and rare fish.

Having someone along with some knowledge of Spanish is an asset (but not essential), and you do need to be fit and healthy (and take your malaria tablets!). Otherwise anyone over 16 (or over 12 with adult guardian) can go. I wouldn't recommend going if you find spiders or insects scary, or hate getting dirty either, but if your idea of fun is wading through armpit deep leech infested stinking mud, whilst having your face bitten by swarms of mosquitos, in search of this years 'YAFULST' (a.k.a Yet Another F'ing Unidentified Little Silver Tetra) so it can be named after you, then you'll love it. No seriously, it is great fun!

Trips aren't cheap, the flights are over a grand alone, but they are some of the cheapest trips to the Amazon around by a long way and with the dollar being so weak currently you could probably do the whole thing for under £2K. My friend is constantly offering me discounted or last minute bargain trips, neither of which I can afford right now :( But, he is happy for me to fill places with anyone else interested, and seriously if I could afford it I would spend my life out there, it's an amazing experience all round.
