While we didn't get to see the giant river otters, we saw an amazing array of bird life and caught pirañas.

The quieter waters of the lake meant that the rainforest grew right to the edge of the water and was in much better condition than the more disturbed forest along the main river bank. Birdlife was abundant with a highlight being the numerous Hoatzins. Catching 3 species of piranha and seeing Giant River Otters and Caiman topped it off.

I liked the peace in the area and the great views of sunrise, trees, birds flying. I didn't like the very early wakeup, depending on weather conditions, you might not need to wake up so early. When we went to the lake it was really misty we couldn't see much after one hour, after this excursion my son and I... More

This was one of the activities we did while staying at the Posada. We floated around the oxbow lake in the most peaceful and beautiful setting, and even caught a sight of the river otters. There were plenty of birds and monkeys in the surrounding forest, and we had a wonderful relaxing time.

The trail to get to the lake is a great adventure, with tarantula, amazing trees (like the rubber tree and walking Palm). We even saw a crested owl and an ocelot on the way! The lake is home to a pile of birds and the piraña are plentiful to say the least. We had no luck catching one because a... More

Awesome experience! We started the day at 530AM, mucked about in the muddy forest terrain till we arrived at the lake where we got to try our hand at fishing for these infamous predators – fun and educational. Definitely a must-do for Amazon travellers.

Be prepared with your Raincoat and wellies.. it is quite a trek and if you have binoculars, that would be a bonus.. The otters are quite difficult to spot.. but catching Pirhana makes up for the disappointment. The variety of the Birds you can spot and the knowledge of the Guides makes the experience, perfect! The peace and tranquility you... More

So much to see in Peru and this area is a highlight. Yes, there are lots of birds and piranhas but a highlight at the oxbow lake was the number of giant otters
