We board a G Adventures bus and drive the djungle road to Iquitos for about an hour.

There we stop at the Amazonian Manatee Sanctuary. A place where they take care about wounded or captured endangered Amazonian species to get them ready for wilderness again and put them out into the park. Especially manatees.

There JC introduces us to our local guide and we do a 1 hour tour. The guide explains the educational aspects and which species they take care of and why they are endangered.

We will fly from Iquitos Airport at 01:00 pm. JC brings us at 11:00 am to the airport. Better early than late. Checkin opens at 11:00 am, so we checkin and go for a beer with the group.

In Lima a G Adventures lady is waiting at Arrivals and brings us to a G Adventures bus. On the way to Lima, Miraflores she offers us to book transports to the airport. We book one. We arrive in Hotel San Augustin Exclusive, Lima. They try to give us a room to the street, third floor. We ask last time to keep the same room to the back (more quiet), with this help to remember we finally get room 511. Spacious and quiet.
