In the midst of a dilapidated city is this surprisingly nice park its grass, benches, some plantings. Try to ignore the trash that seems ubiquitous in Peru.

I enjoy the experience very much. As soon as I've arrived a little monkey jumped over me and sit on my shoulder. He spent my entire visit with me. I recomend this visit to people who likes nature and animals.

Hi, I want to visit Monkey Island and the Manatee center on the same day. I only have one free day Isquitos. Arrivng from Lima around 10:45am. Is it possible to cram both places in one day? if so, how can this be arranged? I don't mind hiring a private guide, as long as the price is reasonable. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks

We would like to visit from Iquitos but do not want to spend 7 hours. If we rent a small private boat, can a visit be done in four hours? Any names of operators? Expected costs? Thanks
