What is the best season to visit Muyuna?
Muyuna can be visited all year round. The only thing which changes is the level of the water. Each period has its charm. During the low-water season, you can walk a lot more and there are less mosquitos. Where we walk in the low-water season, we use canoes at a few meters from the canopy of the trees. Then, it is possible to see more flowers.
What is the most dangerous thing that could happen?
Being bitten by a serpent. This is why we provide rubber boots. Since we began in 1999, no traveler has been bitten, and if it does come to pass, we have snake anti-venom and our own boats to transfer you immediately to Iquitos. We have expert guides who know what to do in case something unpredicted happens, as well as having on hand any and all necessary equipment for emergencies, such as tools for the boat, water, first aid kit, etc.
What differentiates Muyuna from other lodges?
It is easier to go with the flow. This is why the population of Iquitos grows downriver. Those lodges which are situated down river, and near to the city, have fewer possibilities to guarantee seeing animals in their natural habitats; which is why they have recourse to visit places such as Monkey Island, and the Serpentarium to see animals.
They also go on tours to visit the touristic tribes, shamans´ houses and artisanal liquor factories. There are also high-end resorts with swimming pools and some with air-conditioning. Muyuna goes on more guided-excursions focused on seeing animals in their natural habitat with a 100% guarantee of seeing them; our being located upriver and on the Yanayacu River where there is almost no human presence.
Are there cases of Yellow Fever o Malaria in the Lodge?
No, in the area where we are located, there is no yellow fever, dengue, Malaria or Zika. Also, no cases of this disease have been seen in years, so no vaccination card is requested at any airport in Peru.
What to bring?:
As space in Muyuna is limited, bring only the necessary luggage for the jungle. The extra luggage will be left at the Muyuna office in Iquitos at no additional charge.
