The Pacaya Samiria Natural Reserve is one of the preferred destinations for those visiting Iquitos. To roam around it is an adventure for traveler’s looking for amazing nature, due to its magnificent biodiversity.

To navigate along the rivers that cross it, the Pacaya and the Samiria, is to immerse yourself on a mirror jungle, name that has been given to it due to the clear reflection of the sky on its waters.

This charming destination also has an important diversity of flora and fauna, so if you visit this beautiful site we recommend spending at least three days to be able to take it all in.

In Pacaya Samiria temperatures average 28 C° (82 F°) and humidity ranges from 80% to 90% year round. Between June and September rains are less frequent, but never fully stop.

Pacaya Samiria houses five hundred twenty seven bird species, one hundred and two species of mammals, sixty nine species of reptiles, fifty eigth species of amphibians, two hundred sixty nine species of fish, and one thousand and twenty five of threatened and endangered species such as the black caiman, the manatee, the charapa (land turtle), the maquisapa (monkey), the pink dolphin, the jaguar, among many others.
