  • Stop mandatory for travellers visiting Iquitos. Allows you to interact with manatees rescued, animals quite sweet, calm and docile. The work of caregivers is bantante commendable and is good to know that we are contributing to this activity with small economic contribution that is provided with the payment of the entrance.
