7 am - Breakfast is served.
8 am – Today's activities begin by walking through the trails of our reserve surrounded by 300+-year-old trees while your guide explains the history and biology of the flora and fauna by sight and sound before arriving at your first platform located 15 meters high in the crown of an old Kapok tree, accessed by a suspension bridge.
Continue your walk into the Taricaya reserve towards the Canopy platform, the highest tree platform in South America.
Located 45 meters high up in the crown of an ancient Kapok tree and connected by a 90-meter long suspension bridge, this is not for the faint-hearted.
Catch a glimpse of flying Macaws, parrots or Toucans; the views from this platform are truly unforgettable! (Approx. 2 hours).
Continue into the reserve until we reach the Taricaya Rescue Center where you will encounter many different rescued animals most of which will be released back into the wild, including a puma, spectacled bears, macaws, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguarondi, bush dogs, tapir, turtles and much more. (Approx. 2 hours)
PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A RESCUE CENTRE NOT A ZOO!!!! (we cannot stress this enough) These animals are in the process of rehabilitation before being released back into the wild, we do not support or condone animals in captivity on this land for purposes of tourist attractions! If you’re coming to pet animals this is not for you, your family or your group.
Taricaya has single-handedly repopulated these parts of the jungle with animals that have been able to return to the wild including the black spider monkey, who is almost extinct in this area, through the first Reintroduction Program for Wildlife in Peru.
13:00h - Lunch is served.
14:00h - Relax in the hammock area, enjoy a cocktail from the Tunche bar or have a rest in the comfort of your private bungalow.
15:30 pm - Venture on a jungle hike to the Agroforestry farm and visit the reforestation projects, explore the Mahogany workshop and the artificial beaches of the Taricaya turtle project
18:30 - Prepare yourself for the caiman search along the river´s edge under the moonlight. We will search for the spectacled caimans as they lay along the river banks at night. On an open sky night, you will enjoy the amazing sky filled with stars and look for constellations.

Rest and end of the day.
