Parque Natural de Pucallpa, Pucallpa

#5 of 9 in Things to do in Pucallpa
Walk through the toothy grin of a giant lizard that lived more than 10 million years ago into Parque Natural de Pucallpa, a zoo with more than 400 species of animals. The park acts as both a recreational center, a museum, and zoo--lined with trees, swampy areas, and criss-crossed by trails. See monkeys, alligators, jaguars, anteaters, deer, and toucans, and then browse the museum's collection of river fossils. Don't forget bug spray, as the dense forest jungle also hosts many mosquitos.

  • The palce was full of trees and having full of fun there i and my family enjoyed a lot there which makes our energy increses  more »
  • The natural park of pucallpa is the Zoo in the city, you can stroll and see various animals including tortoises, monkeys, lizards, birds and cats among others. There is a part of the path in which you'll see the monkeys in the trees in their natural habitat. The Park has areas so that families can make sporting activities as well as games for children. The Park Trail is well signposted to avoid losing you and see all the animals.

  • Natural Park has little. Skinny, stressed-out animals hanging around in the cage and even making damaged themselves. Animals in very poor condition. Injured, malnourished. A monkey came out of his cage, was with panic and hungry. With signs asked food and clung to my. 3 times I asked for help ladies that worked there and ignored. After almost 2 hours I had to leave to the monkey. I just hope that this well it seems that the people who work there don't know of animals. Dirty cages. Animals nature lack them in their cages. Some are pure cement... could continue... here I leave some photos of the monkey.

Where to stay in Pucallpa

After centuries spent isolated from the country's main urban areas, the highway and airport brought a wave of development to Pucallpa, including a good range of accommodations. Hotels both simple and luxurious scatter throughout the main urban area; generally larger and more popular options line the main boulevards, while simpler, smaller hotels are tucked away in the city's side streets. The densest area of places to stay lies between Av. Centenario/Saenz Pena and the Ucayali River. In this neighborhood, many of the city's grandest hotels sit alongside more humble lodgings, with a number of rooms offering good views of the river.
