We stopped in after a cruise for an hour. The Center has monkeys and other animals in addition to the Manatees. They told us that they rehab all of the animals with a goal of getting them in shape to be released into the wild....More
The rescue centre is about 20 mins out of Iquitos. It is a small, not for profit operation but fascinating in its rescue and rehabilitation work. The manatees are the headline animals but there are many others receiving care including tortoises, many species of monkeys,...More

Rescue center for animals who are endangered or were once pets. Goal is to rehabilitate animals to release back them into the wild or to sanctuaries away from humans.

The center receives animals from all over, and particularly Iquitos...More

The tour only takes 45 minutes and if you have...More

Belen, La Isla De Los Monos, Amazon Rescue Center (2 Replies)
Hello, We have an open day in Iquitos and I was thinking that we could do Belen, La Isla De Los Monos and the Amazon Rescue Center. Is this doable in one day? If so, can we do it ourselves and take a tuk tuk/taxi, or do would we need a guide? Thanks in advance for your help!

The Amazon Rescue Center and Belen are your best bets. . We do not include it due to shabby conditions and shady business practices. An animal at a "monkey island" is like a product on the shelf, when on dies, they just order another. Once I had a client who begged us to stop at monkey island, after three days of saying no, she went behind our backs and got the rest of our clients to insist a visit to monkey island. After the group confronted us, i explained why we do not visit but they...More
