    • Seeking info on visiting Manu National Park

      Manù Mar 20, 2016 at 1:08 PM

      I am planning a trip to Peru for September or October 2016. I am thinking of visiting Manu National Park for 5 days. I would like to see birds and other wildlife, maybe go rafting or ziplining, and experience being in the jungle. Can anyone recommend a tour agency and share your experiences? I would be interested in hearing any tips or other information as well. As always, thanks so much for sharing your knowledge!

    • Yellow fever vaccination

      Puerto Maldonado May 30, 2013 at 1:40 PM

      I wrote a letter to a jungle lodge and asked what yellow fever vaccination requirement there, the answer was it is not required but recommended. Have you visited Puerto Maldonado recently? Please share your experience. Any problem to reenter US if without yellow fever vaccination card?

      traveling by river from Puerto Maldonado

      Puerto Maldonado Jan 3, 2010 at 2:52 PM

      I was figuring on taking a bus down from Cuzco to P.M. and then after my visit, continue on to possibly Iñapari which I believe is now paved up to Manaus along Rio Negro. What are the preferred alternatives to traveling by land and water to Manaus from Puerto Maldonado?

    • best macaw clay lick for taking photos? Blanquillo (Manu) or Heath River?

      Departamento de Madre de Dios Feb 7, 2008 at 5:23 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I would like to visit a macaw clay lick (colpa) in Peru this year and I'm wondering which would be the best for taking photos.

      I've been to the one at the Tambopata Research Center, but you're only allowed to watch from the banks opposite the clay lick (I guess about 100-120 meters away). So it's too far away to take good photos even with a big tele lens.

      I heard that you can get closer at a clay lick often referred to as "Blanquillo" near the Manu Wildlife Center and at a clay lick at the Heath River. They are said to use floating blinds to bring you closer to the lick without desturbing the macaws.

      Has anyone here every been to one of these clay licks? How was it with the blinds? Or does anyone know which of these 2 clay licks is better? I'm interested in any information you could give about the clay licks... Thank you very much in advance!

      Best regards,

      Finding a good local tourist agent

      Puerto Maldonado Mar 15, 2007 at 8:57 AM

      Hello --

      I'm planning a visit to the rainforest and wanted suggestions for a good local tourist agent to buy a trip from. I'd prefer to spend my money locally versus to an international agency.

      Any suggestions?
