Visiting The Pacaya Samiria National Reserve May 22, 2015
The Pacaya National Reserve is located in the Loreto region of Peru, way up north in the Amazon Jungle.

It is a protected reserve full of amazing flora and fauna, you can expect to see so much nature in just a few hours. We took a motor powered dug out canoe to the main office which is a small lodge located about 1 and half hours speed boat distance away from Nauta near Iquitos City.

You have to purchase tickets to enter the Reserve which was roughly $50 for 2 days for me and my son.

We saw squirrel monkeys with babies dancing in the tree canopies, heard howler monkeys, saw piranha fish, macaws, Amazonian pink dolphins, Victoria Regis lilies, three toed sloths and so much more including beautiful birds early in the mornings.

I recommend this location for wildlife with all my heart, you will fall in love and wish to stay for more than 1 or 2 days.
