Attractions & Activities In The Amazon River & Iquitos

The Peruvian Amazon, home to sloths, jaguars, pumas, caimans, monkeys, kinkajous, coatis, and pink river dolphins to name but a few, is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. On Kuoda’s Amazon private tours, an in-the-know rainforest expert will steer you toward the region’s most densely inhabited pockets, where all manner of curious creatures can be seen.

The diversity of animals present in the Peruvian rainforest is simply astounding. Data collected by the National Academy of Sciences showed that in a path of rainforest that measure just 3.8-square miles, around 125 mammal, 400 avian, 100 reptile, 60 amphibian and 150 butterfly species can be found.

But no statistic, no matter how impressive, can possibly compare to seeing and hearing these intriguing creatures first-hand. Glimpsing a poison dart frog, whose brightly colored skin secretes a highly poisonous toxin; a 100-gram pygmy marmoset, the world’s tiniest monkey; or the blue morpho butterfly, whose shimmering metallic wings can measure up to eight inches, is an experience that is not easily forgotten.

If you’re on a Peru family trip, wildlife-watching excursions can be particularly good for children. Not only will your little ones be fascinated by the strange and spectacular critters, but they’ll also gain an appreciation of why it’s so vital to protect this life-giving forest.
