Useful Information

The Cultural Zone is one of the three areas of the Manu Biosphere Reserve and is a transition zone between the Andes and the Rain and Cloud Forest. There are montains, a Cloud Forest and a part of the Low Rainforest jungle. In this area it is possible to visit small hamlets, settlers and Native Communities who dedicate their time to productive activities like agriculture or small scale wood extraction, thanks to the control of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Park authorities. The purpose of this controlled area is to protect the Reserved Zone. That is why it is also called
"Transition Zone" or "Multi-use Zone".

For a deeper experience of the jungle we recommend you to make an excursion into the Reserved Zone of Manu.

We recommend the tour in the Cultural Zone for those who have little time (4 Days) and who want to visit the Peruvian jungle and take advantage of the nice landscapes and the various ecosystems. You will also have the opportunity to practice adventure sports like mountain biking, rafting (level I - II) and canopying. On the other hand, the wildlife in the Cultural Zone is less impressive than in the Reserved Zone. The main wildlife in the Cultural Area consists of smaller mammals and birds.

The Inca Trail is part of the Machu Picchu Sanctuary: an area protected by the National Institute of Natural Resources (INRENA) being the maximum number of visitors for day permitted of 500 persons. Consequently, all reservations should be placed with a minimum of 45 days in advance prior to the date of travel. Every visitor must obey the Park regulations which forbid us to litter, cut or damage trees, take or damage stones of the ruins or the trail, collect plants, kill animals, light fires or camp in the Inca ruins. You will only be able to camp in authorized sites.

The Bungalows have been constructed in harmony with the forest using local materials which allow them to blend well into the exotic setting. "Style" can be described as rustic comprising wooden, palm thatched, screened cabins without electricity. Candles and lamps are used after dark making a relaxing natural ambiance. Solar energy is being introduced but only for lighting for the administration building exits, maintenance of batteries for radio communications, and in the kitchen area for food preparation.

San Pedro Open Air lodge is a platform with no private rooms. All the beds are protected by mosquito nets. On the other hand, Erika Lodge has individual cabins with a porch with hammocks, table and chairs for relaxing. The bungalows mainly have two bedrooms each containing twin beds.

There is a bathroom area in each Lodge with refreshing cool running water. There is no hot water. The main building consists of a screened dining room, where water, coffee, tea and bananas are available 24 hours a day. Nearby the bar is located, which has games and books for your entertaiment. Trails leading from the Lodge are constantly being maintained and are being developed to guarantee safe and maximal access to the different habitat types.

Naturalist Guides are resident year long and are ready to introduce you to the marvels of the Rain Forest. During a typical day at the Lodge our guides bring the forest to life by pointing out the important trees, flowers, medicinal plants remedies, as well as assisting in sighting and identifying the birds, mammals, reptiles, butterflies and other insects. In the evening short lectures are scheduled which deal with special Rain Forest subjects and give a chance to delve further into the mysteries and marvels of this ecosystem. Meals are prepared by our professional and dedicated staff from a mixture of local Rain Forest products as well as more traditional foods. Some meals are distinctly Peruvian, others are International in flavor.

River transport to and from the Lodge is completed by motorised dugout canoes, shaded and equipped with cushions for your comfort and life jackets for your security. Canoes are managed by experienced qualified boat drivers with a deep knowledge of the River and its wildlife.

Peru's climate may be divided into two: The Western Andes and theDesert Coast. On the Coast, it does not rain and the temperature is warm throughout the year. On the other hand, in the Andes, thereare two seasons: Rainy and Dry.

Arequipa, Puno and Cusco are located in the Eastern Andes, so their rainy season is from October to May, the rest of the year it is dry.

Rainy time, starting in October/ November has its own maximum time in January, continuing until March/ April. In years of pouring rain there are landslides, floods, etc.

In the Highlands, it is cold in the evenings but sunny and warm in the mornings. It is even possible to wear t-shirts, but when the sun sets it gets really chilly so please bring a warm sweater (or buy an alpaca one in Cusco) and a good jacket.

The weather in the Amazon is warm, wet and rainy with average temperatures of 28 °centigrade during all year.
Rainy season: November to April
Dry season: May to September
During rainy months from November to April, be always prepared for heavy rains that can last hours or days.

Finally, the weather in general does not represent a limit to provide any tourist services, except some particularily bad years.
