Reserva Natural Marasha, Puerto Alegria

4.8
#4 of 20 in Wildlife in Loreto Region
At Reserva Natural Marasha, hike through Amazon forest among huge trees, while exploring the diversity of wildlife, such as multicolored parrots and capybaras. Go sport fishing for piranha, take a ride in a kayak, or do some alligator spotting. Other safe and well-organized activities include a canopy zipline, swimming and canoeing in the picture-postcard lake, and guided walks through the jungle. The reserve gets its name from a small, spiny palm that grows around the lake. Relax in clean and comfortable wooden cabins (equipped with nets that keep out mosquitoes and other insects), and listen to the sounds of the jungle.

    Never in my life, anywhere in the world, I had felt the peace and tranquility that I felt in the middle of the Amazon, watching the sunset in the reserve Marasha. Isidro treated us great, led us to fish, to find alligators at night and watch the sunrise. The food is rich, the place is beautiful, the plan is perfect.

    Nice ecological place in the middle of the jungle. Very comfortable accomodations to be in that part of the world. Knowledgeable guides and fun planned day and night activities. Good food  more »

    Of all the tours I did when I went to Amazon, this was the place that I liked more. It's a lovely, quiet place, want to stay. It's worth staying more than one day for those looking for peace and quiet, clear mind.

    At first was unsure what to do when we got here. A beautiful lake encircled by massive Cebu trees and full of tiny piranha. Ask your guide and you might be able to fish for them with chicken skin from the cocina. Take the opportunity to kayak the lake and maybe sit in the hammock for a couple minutes. Beautiful.

    A magical place without a doubt. Highly recommended. At night, the Moon is reflected in the Lake facing rooms. We left overnight in a canoe on the Lake and we were able to have an alligator in the hands. The guide that we attended knew the jungle and local people. Even took us to see pink dolphins the day we came back.
