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!
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?
hay do i need to take malaria pills and such before i go??
if so how do i get them ?
Where can I find a 2 day tour or itinerary for an amazon visit from Puerto Maldonado. What is recommended to see and do, or not to miss, when visiting this area? Thank you.
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?

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!
i'm thinking about taking my parents on an amazon cruise as part of our trip to peru. however, it seems that all the cruises are very expensive. does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations for more reasonably priced cruises?
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.
has anyone used this company for travel to manu...would appreciate any reviews..thanks
does anyone know the area around the manu centre run by CREES. it is 1 hour down steam from atalaya - is it good rainforest area, or is it necessary to go further down river to get the real manu experience?
Does anyone recommed a company for rafting near Puerto Maldonado?
