    If you want to have an idea of the people who lives in this area, Jesus also organices tours to the comunities 3 hours throught the river from Puerto Bermudez.
    Interesting to have a light idea about how they live and to know their perception of the reallity. Don't expect people almost nacked with bows and arrows, it's not a BBC documentary. It's more real than that.

    Jesus organices tours to the jungle. Great experience for those who have lived in the Concrete Jungle. Sometimes the guide is Jesus and other times is Aquiles, a local man who knows perfectly the jungle and will explain everything about the biodiversity.
    Price in 2007 between 140 and 150 soles (37€).

    As soon as you arrive to La Merced ask for the pick-ups to Puerto Bermudez. You can go on foot or take a 'motocarro' for 1 sol.
    If you can choose take a place inside the pick-up, its more expensive, but remember that it's a really hard travel and it will take about 7 hours, probably more.
    The prices in 2007 were:
    - Inside the pick-up: 45 soles (12€)
    - In the back of the pick-up: 25 soles (7€)

    Prepare yourself physical and psicologically, a haaard travel is waiting for you. First of all 6 hours by bus from Lima to La Merced, where the road finishes. After that other 6, 7 or 8 hours, depending on the road, throught the jungle in a 4x4 pick up.
    There are diferent bus companies which thavel to La Merced, the problem is that they are not centraliced in the same place, the are distributed in diferent streets in Lima. I will mention some of them:
    - EMPRESA DE TRANSPORTE SALAZAR.
    Adress: Carlos Zabala nº 233.
    Tlf: (01) 426-7961
    - EMPRESA DE TRANSPORTES JUNIN.
    Adress: Luna Pizarro nº 460 - A. La Vistoria district.
    Tlf: (01) 330-9014
    - EMPRESA DE TRANSPORTES Y TURISMO APOSTOL SAN PEDRO E.I.R.L.
    Adress: Av. 28 de Julio nº 1543. La Victoria district.
    Tlf: 335-0353
    - EXPRESO LOBATO S.A.C.
    Adress: Av. 28 de Julio nº 2101
    Tlf: (01) 324-4118
    - TRANSPORTES CHANCHAMAYO.
    Adress: Av. Manco Capac nº 1052.
    Tlf: (01) 470-1189 / 265-6850
    We traveled with NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LA MERCED in a confortable bed bus. This one and TRANSPORTES JUNIN are the most recomendable companies.
    - EMPRESA DE TRANSPORTES NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LA MERCED.
    Adress: Av. 28 de Julio nº 1575. La Victoria district.
    Tlf: (01) 423-7225 / 423-3667
    Price 2007: 40 soles (10€).

    It would be interesting to take the bus between 19:00 and 20:00 to combine with the pick-ups in La Merced about 3:00 am and arrive to Puerto Bermudez in the morning. If not don't worry... you'll find pick-ups in La Merced ALMOST for sure, remember, in Peru everything is pissible, but nothing is sure!! ;-]

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
