From Puerto Maldonado || Piranha fishing and parrot watching – Madre de Dios River, Peru

Live a local experience with piranha fishing and parrot watching. You will use traditional techniques and attend a unique natural spectacle.


We will pick you up at 3:00 p.m. at your hotel in Puerto Maldonado. From there we will take a journey of about 30 minutes to reach what is known as the entrance to the Peruvian jungle. We will walk through nature until we meet the Madre de Dios River.

We will board a canoe and, from the water, we will have a unique panoramic view of lakes and palm groves. We will stop in the heart of the Madre de Dios River to practice piranha fishing for an hour. It is one of the most deeply rooted traditions in the area. Let’s see how many you catch!

After the experience, we will resume our journey back to the shore. The canoe will run aground very close to the emblematic Clay Lick. We will stand next to this clay wall to see, for half an hour, how a hundred parrots feed on the salts and minerals contained in the mud.

We will leave Clay Lick and return to the canoe to make the return trip. At 6:30 p.m. we will accompany you to the accommodation to conclude the piranha fishing and parrot watching.
