There are a few different ways to see the Amazon Region in Peru. Some cruise along the Amazon River via chartered boat. Others opt to enlist the aid of guides to take them into the forest as well as to the indigenous communities.
THE SHAMAN EXPERIENCE
The native Riberenos (river people) often seek the help of a shaman for healing purposes. While venturing into the Amazon Region, it is possible to visit a traditional shaman and perhaps even witness a blessing ceremony.
With the bountiful Amazon River, this region is known for its exotic fishing. We say exotic because it is not uncommon for those who are with a guide and understand the process, to actually hook into a local piranha.
This is a metropolitan city in the Amazon Basin that cannot be reached by road. A truly eclectic mix, you will see primitive huts and modern buildings side by side here. The city has plenty of restaurants and an actual floating market.
