Tapiche Reserve, Iquitos

(90 reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
For a truly secluded Amazonian experience, look no further than Tapiche Reserve, a privately owned and operated conservation area accessible only by waterway. Wildlife here includes endangered species such as jaguars, giant armadillo, harpy eagles, and the Brazilian tapir, so you'll spot all kinds of creatures along the trail through lush, thick jungle. The 1,540 hectare (3,805 acre) reserve exists on a strictly no-hunting and conservation-led principle; ticket sales go toward the efforts at preserving this Amazonian paradise. Due to its distance from the nearest town, the attraction doesn't draw crowds--making it the perfect place if you're seeking something remote. Plan to visit Tapiche Reserve during your Iquitos vacation using our convenient Iquitos family vacation planner.
