We had a great time at the Tapiche Ohara Reserve. Katoo was very helpful when we were organizing and planning everything. He was also able to help us with booking flights to and from Iquitos (which saved us some cash!) We saw all sorts of wildlife while we were there (various monkeys, birds, dolphins, iguanas, etc. etc). We went in the rainy season, so most of our transportation was in a canoe. We did do one day of trekking, which was great but also means seeing much less wildlife (not as quiet as a canoe!). I would recommend going in the rainy season if you want to see a lot of wildlife, and going in March was great because we were able to see the bird nesting area. The meals were great, lots of food and well prepared. The only downside to the whole trip is getting to and from the reserve (a very long day of travel - be prepared for all kinds of weather on the boat!). But that isn't really avoidable if you're looking to get somewhere remote, and it is well worth the trip. My only suggestion is making sure you have good rain gear, and lots of sunscreen and protective clothing as it may be 5-6 hours in the sun (especially if you're taking antimalarial pills that increase sun sensitivity! ouch!).
Thanks Katoo for the memorable experience, and we would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience the jungle with some amazing guides!
