Dozens and sometimes hundreds of Blue Headed Parrots, Orange-Cheeked Parrots, Cobalt-winged parakeets, and sometimes even the rare Rock Parakeet congregate here on clear days to ingest the clay. This congregation creates a riotous and colourful wildlife spectacle where the greens, oranges, reds and blues of the parrots dance around the bank. At times, this spectacle can last for hours. After lunch, you will have a walk through a trail in primary forest with a community member and your naturalist guide who will explain general aspects of rain forest ecology and natural history, each with their own contrasting viewpoint.

Tour Review: starstarstarstarstar

Dear Jim,

Juliana was waiting for us at the airport, and we left our luggage at the agency, no problem. We visited Lima taking taxis during the day, no problem. We enjoyed Lima and its white sky, quite a change after the amazing colors seen everywhere. As for the trip, we had a wonderful time. Everything was organized perfectly, we were lucky with the weather, and everything went smoothly. Thank you for that, you did a great job.

All the hotels were nice.

Our trip to Suasi was fantastic, I hope you are proposing that as well. The Casa-Andina chain is definitely really nice. Casa-Andina on Suasi is an amazing hotel, a really jewel on the lake, the hotel is beautiful, the spot incredible, the service extremely nice an personal, we had a blast. Close to heaven, I must say...

And the stops on the way to see the Uros on the island was also fantastic.
The jungle was an incredible experience as well.

Let me know if you have other questions, I am happy to leave you comments.

Thank you again for everything, testimonials rich and seija
