Even though it is the largest city in the Peruvian jungle, there are no westward roads joining it to the coast or the Andes; it can only be reached by air or by river.

The majority of fish that we caught in this area appeared to have some of the characteristics of a butterfly peacock (Cichla Ocellaris) such as no black splotches on the cheeks, and some of a Royal Peacock (Cichla Intermedia) such as irregular splotches of black connecting in some cases the three vertical bars on each side. The entire peacock exhibited more orange along their underside and lower fins than other peacocks. Largest fish don’t go over 10 pounds, but great numbers.

The scenery is the marvelous Pacaya-Samiria Reserve located in Peru's Amazon region, 93 miles south from Iquitos. The Reserve is a triangular shaped area between the Maranon and Ucayali rivers. These rivers intersect at the northeastern tip of the Reserve, marking the beginning of what is considered the Amazon proper.

There, visitors will also have the chance to observe exotic pink dolphin of the Amazon at their natural habitat. Activities also include visits to the local communities, hikes in primary rainforest, observation of flora and fauna, birdwatching, canoe rides, fishing and many more. Also, the visit to the confluence of the Marañon and Ucayali rivers where the Amazon river is born. You can enjoy the spectacular view from a 100 feet watching tower.

The Pacaya Samiria National Reserve has a great and unique variety of flora and fauna, and is also known as the "Jungle of the Mirrors" due to the fact that the jungle and the sky are reflected so clearly in the waters of the rivers and lakes, that the visitors have the sensation of navigating throughout endless mirrors of water.
