    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    Amazon Rescue Center (CREA) is a conservation project that works in partnership with The Dallas World Aquarium Zoo and the Research Institute of the Peruvian Amazon. Located 30 minutes from Iquitos downtown by tuk tuk or 1 hour by bus, CREA offers you the possibility to experience the real conservation in the Peruvian Amazon. The species in the rescue center were rescued from different places where kept illegally in captivity. After the rehabilitation, they are released to their natural habitat. So far CREA has released 23 manatees, 2 pink dolphins, anteaters, sloths, turtles and other animals. One of our guides will explain you the rehabilitation process in the different areas we have such as: Reptiles (yellow spotted river turtle, tortoise), monkeys, birds and manatees. You will also visit our interpretation center "The flooded forest" with real size fiber glass statues of the main aquatic species of the amazon. The tour lasts an hour, you will walk through our path in the forest where you can learn more about the Amazonian.

I wasn't sure if this would be worth it, but it ended up being the highlight of my trip and a charity I care about. I got to feed a baby manatee, and I was changed. These are the most gentle kind, sweet creatures. Clearly, this center is dedicated to changing the hearts and minds of the people who have the best chance to protect these animals. I had spent the days before visiting the center in the Jungle and I was really disappointed by how very little wildlife I saw. Compared to another trip I had done on the Napo Wildlife Center in Ecuador, the jungle trip I took 4 hours outside of Iquitos had so few monkeys, birds, reptiles, and critters. We're on a dying planet and the Amazon Rescue Center gave me some hope that there are places and people dedicated to saving animals and educating humans. 5-Stars!

One of the highlights of my trip to Peru. Lucio was an excellent tour guide, and I loved hearing about their outreach efforts to educate local families about conservation. Some kids who go on field trips there end up convincing their parents to stop caging endangered animals, and to give them to the rescue instead.

They are doing amazing work at this rescue. We enjoyed not only learning about the animals themselves but hearing about the work and education they are doing to continue their protection. As they said - it starts with educating the younger generations and getting them involved.

Of course seeing all of the animals up close is really amazing as well!

Highly recommend supporting this organization and donating if you can.

This is one of the few reputable animal rescues in the area, and they're doing great work. They educate - travelers and locals - about the manatees and the crucial part they play in the ecosystem. They're working to eliminate manatee hunting and other destructive practices. They raise orphaned manatees and release them, and they seem to be doing this all very responsibly. That's why they deserve your donation.

But it's also worth taking the time for a visit. The guided tour is about an hour long, and you get to see and learn about more than just manatees. They have areas holding other rescued animals that needed homes, animals that unfortunately cannot be released back into the wild due to injuries, health problems, or domestication.

And don't go expecting to hold or touch animals. This is a reputable place that puts animal welfare first. It's not healthy for the animals, so no you can't pet a manatee.

The center is easy to get to - about a 30 min taxi or tuk tuk ride from the center of Iquitos. We splurged 100 sol on an air conditioned taxi that would take us there, wait, and bring us back, but you could do it for 5-10 sol each way in a tuk tuk. It costs 30 sol apiece for entry & tour.

You will get a tour which is included in your entry ticket of 20Sol/adult. Despite the manatees you will also see different types of parrots (macaws and loros), kaimans, ocelots, turtles and quite a lot of monkeys playing around. At the entrance they show a short movie about their work. If you ask for it the guide will also translate into english for you.
Great place with people doing a great job saving these animals!!

It was a different experience than the last time I was there. last time I went out there by my self, and was given a one on one tour. I had an interesting talk with my guild, and got a lot of questions answered. This time I again went o there by myself, but they had me wait for a large group to come. It was just a dry lecture to the whole group. I still believe in what they do there. Save animals and nurse them back to health, and release most of them back into the Jungle.
