Jungle Tours

There is so much to see around Selva Vida. When you book a room with us, it includes full-time access to an experienced private guide who can show you all the beauty and magic of the Amazon Jungle. Some of the places to go and things to do include: Monkey Island, a native tribe the Yaguas, visiting an animal sanctuary, looking for pink and grey river dolphins, fishing for piranhas, the biggest tree in the Amazon, taking a boat down the river, kayaking, and walking around the jungle. You just need to pay for the boat transportation which could be 100-200 soles ($25-50 USD) per day depending on where you go.
