The Manú National Park, located in the isolated region of Madre de Dios, is one of the most diverse areas in Peru and South America.
There are two way to get to Manu:
It is possible to enter by a combination by bus and boat and leave through the same boat/bus combination. This option can be a long trip.
It is also possible to use the combination of travelling one way by bus/boat and the other by plane.
Manu Wildlife Center is an awesome place to see lots of birds, monkeys and other wildlife. Cabins are clean, with hot water, but no electricity. Food is very good. Various trips are available from canopy stands to one of only a few known Macaws clay licks, where hundreds of Macaws come every morning to eat bits of clay which aids their digestion.
It is important to get permits in advanced to enter to the park. INRENA is the Government office in charge of issuing permits. This can be done and paid for through the 8 different official operators in the Manu park.
