SUNRISE WATCHING TOUCANS IN THE MAY RIVER SWIMMING IN THE WATERFALLS IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY LISTENING TO THE SONGS OF THE JUNGLE AT SUNSET.


JUNGLE AND PUCAYAQUILLO WATERFALLS

The access to the Pucayaquillo waterfalls is through a path (1.8 km) totally surrounded by jungle, which will allow us to know, in a pleasant botanical walk, a large number of plants and trees representative of the forests of Tarapoto…

From pioneer trees and palms to hardwood forest species. Epiphytic plants such as lianas, vines and climbers. Medicinal plants and resins used to coat and polish native pottery. We will come across brightly colored dart frogs, rows of curuhuinsis carrying cut leaves and, of course, the “respected” isula ants. The final prize is an invigorating swim in the crystalline waters of the waterfall, contemplating the dance of a morpho butterfly, with its electric blue, among a lush green.

RIVERS, JUNGLES AND BIRDS: FROM HUALLAGA TO MAYO

The two main rivers of San Martin are the Huallaga and a tributary of it, the Mayo. Their meeting point is located near the Pumarinri, which allows us to navigate both in a tour in which we will depart from the canyons of the Huallaga, to cross the rapids of the Estero and reach the gentle and meandering Mayo…

In this tour we can see jungle-covered mountains, riverside villages such as Shapaja and cattle ranches with Indian zebu. In the rainy months, the rivers are more powerful and full of water. In the summer months, they invite us to enjoy their beaches and abundant fishing. At all times we will be accompanied by birds, so, with the help of binoculars and a list of the most frequent species, we will become birdwatchers for a day. Herons, toucans, the colorful shansho or the infallible kingfisher are waiting for us.

CHAZUTA: THE CHOCOLATE JUNGLE

There are a thousand reasons to go to Chazuta. Its location makes it a transition point between the high jungle and the Amazon plain. Here the roads end and river transport begins. To visit a cocoa plantation and taste its fruit, we can go sailing the Huallaga River to Fundo Pasikiwi in Chazuta itself…

Chazuta has a strong identity and a rich cultural legacy, which is manifested mainly through its ancestral pottery, preserved in the Wasichay museum and workshop. In the 1980s, with the irruption of plastic, which represented modernity, traditional pottery was on the verge of disappearing. But thanks to Wasichay, which rescued and revalued local craftsmanship, it now has a flourishing future.

PUMARINRI DAYWALK THE JUNGLE BY DAY

The surroundings of Pumarinri offer multiple possibilities to explore and get to know the jungle. In the Yuracyaquillo creek abound colorful dart frogs and morpho butterflies, ponas or ‘walking palms’ and heliconias, with their clusters of red and yellow flowers…

This creek hides the remains of a coca maceration pond, from the 80’s, with a small interpretative tour about that period in the history of San Martin. In the fish farms thrive the fish that will end up supplying our kitchen. And in the nursery, the seedlings that are used for our reforestation projects. In the cocoa plot you can see how this crop is perfectly integrated into the forest, allowing sustainable agriculture with low environmental impact.

PUMARINRI NIGHTWALK – THE JUNGLE AT NIGHT

Activity in the jungle varies throughout the day. Most birds will be seen flying in the early morning and at dusk. Reptiles move in the central hours of the day, when the sun shines the brightest. On the other hand, most mammals are active at night…

And of course the owls, hunters of rodents and nocturnal butterflies. A night walk gives us the possibility to see the fauna that best performs in the dark. In the Pumarinri we have a high diversity of owls. We can also see some animals hunting on the prowl, such as arachnids and dart frogs sleeping on the leaves of plants. And a sky that, when free of clouds, shows us the constellations of the southern hemisphere.
