TOUR: TAMBOPATA RIVER

BACK TO PERU TOURS...
The Tambopata - Candamo Reserved Zone, created in 1990, is one of the most pristine and unspoiled areas in the Amazon rainforest, housing more species of animals than any other place on earth.

Located east and south of Puerto Maldonado, in the Madre de Dios and Puno Regions, at a few minutes from Cusco, the reserved zone has an area of 1.5 million hectares (3.5 million acres).

Like Manu National Park, the reserved zone has pristine oxbow lakes with herons, caimans, kingfishers and giant otters, spectacular waterfalls with swimming holes, clay licks ("collpas") visited by hundreds of macaws, monkeys and tapirs, and swamps filled with palm trees in which colonies of birds nest. You will also find rivers with sandy, white beaches for camping.

The fish are wild, ferocious, big and strong, like all the animals on the reserve. The payara is one of them. We invite you to enjoy with us the hard fighting and high jumping of this ferocious gamefish in one of the biggest rainforests in the world! Be one of the first to take advantage of this New Fishing Destination!

Useful Information

ORIENTATION
Peru is located on the central west coast of South America. Its neighboring countries are: Ecuador and Colombia to the N; Chile to the S; Brazil and Bolivia to the E; and the Pacific Ocean to the W. It is the third largest country in South America, with a surface area of 1 285 215,6 km2 (larger than France, Spain, and Germany combined) distributed approximately in the following manner: 12% coastal territory, 28% Andean highlands and 60% Amazon jungle. Its capital, Lima, is located in the coastal area, where the country's greatest economic activities take place.

TIME ZONE
Peruvian time is five hours past Greenwich Mean Time and is similar to Eastern Standard Time in the United States (except when the U.S. goes on daylight savings time from April to October). In reference to other cities, when it is noon in Peru, it is:

Santiago de Chile and Caracas 13:00
Rio de Janeiro 14:00
New York 12:00
Madrid 18:00
Londres 17:00
Tokyo 03:00


TEMPERATURE
Being such a geographically diverse country within the tropical belt, the weather in Peru is determined both by altitude and season. However, it also means that there is almost invariably sunshine somewhere in Peru ! Below is a summary of the weather conditions you can expect to find in each different region of the country at different times of the year.

Coast (Ica, Chiclayo, Lima, Piura, Trujillo, Tumbes)
Northern region: warm year-round with highs of up to 35°C in the summer.
Central and southern regions: two well-defined seasons, winter between April and October, and summer between November and March.

Highlands (Ancash, Arequipa, Ayacucho, Cajamarca, Cusco, Puno)
This region has two seasons, dry season between April and rainy season between November and March.

Rainforest (Iquitos, Madre de Dios, Manu)
High rainforest (over 2,300 feet asl): has a temperate, subtropical climate with abundant rainfall.

WE RECOMMEND YOU TO
- Wear comfortable shoes the whole time during walking tours.
- Take lots of liquid refreshments along during long excursions.
- RODS: Our suggestion is at least 3 rods from medium-heavy to heavy action, from 7 ½ to 9 foot. Either bait spinning or casting. For Fly Fishermen we suggest a slightly heavier 9-10 weight fly rod.
- REELS: As with rods, at least 3 reels with capacity for 200 yards of 20 pound line, like a Shimano Baitrunner 4500 or 6500, Fin Nor 12, or the Penn 6500.
- LINE: All kinds of lines from 30 pounds to 65 pounds are available, we prefer the multiple filament lines like Spider Wire, Power Pro or a simple Dacron. Good leaders and swivels are strongly recommended, so bring plenty of them.
- LURES: All kinds of lures, like Rebel Fast Track, Rapala Magnum, Spoonbill and Big windcheater, Rapala Countdown and all the types of lures that swim on fast waters and dive quickly. Fire tiger, orange and chartreuse colors are the favorites for the lures because of the dark color of the water.

Wood lures are preferable, because plastic lures will be punctured by the teeth of the payara and will lose their buoyancy.

Do not worry about the size of the lure, you can bring them from 4 ½ inches up. Be careful, the hooks have to be extra strong.

For fly fishermen we inform that the Payara takes a variety of large streamers, but prefers heavily dressed on a 4/0 heavy saltwater tarpon hook. It is essential to have a heavy mono leader tipped with "stout tipped".

WHAT TO BRING
- Long-sleeved shirts for fishing (3).
- Long pants for fishing (3).
- Short-sleeved shirts for camp or fishing (2).
- Short pants for camp or fishing (2).
- T Shirts (2).
- Caps (2).
- Sunscreen Lotion.
- Tennis shoes or sneakers (2).
- Camera & or camcorder.
- Film.
- Pen light.
- Medications & medicines.
- Good repellent.
- Toiletry articles.

THE FISHING
The Tambopata river offers a great variety of fish such as Pacu (Giant Piranha), Payaras, Catfish (Zungaros, Piros, Surubim,... ). We usually fish for Payara with casting and spinning tackle. The river is full of black volcanic rocks. The Payara hunt sardines very close to the shoreline, so we recommend you to cast lures like rapala's magnum or sliver from the rocks, rebel fast track or jawbreaker. The Pacu only eats fruit and fish, so we use sardines as bait, and hooks and weights with multiple filament lines on the reels. The same technique is used on all the catfish.

FISHING SEASON
It starts in the first days of July and ends in October. The best months are August, September and October. We do not recommend full moons.

ALTITUDE
Lima: sea level, 54 m.a.s.l.
Nazca: 588 m.a.s.l.
Paracas: sea level, 5 m.a.s.l.
Cusco City: 3,360 m.a.s.l.
Machu Picchu: 2,400 m.a.s.l.
Urubamba Valley: 2,850 m.a.s.l.



WATER
Tap water in most of Peru is potable, but the chemical content varies from place to place. To avoid problems, we recommend you to always drink bottled water.

VISAS
All travellers should contact the nearest Peruvian consulate in order to ascertain what visa rules apply, since these may change without previous notice.

AIRPORT

Hand luggage regulations

a) All liquids must be carried in containers whose capacity can not exceed of 100 ml (or its equivalent in other volumetric units, such as liquid ounces for instance). No liquids will be allowed in containers of more capacity than the said 100 ml, even if the container is not completely full.

b) The containers must be placed in reclosable plastic bags with a maximum capacity of 1 liter. The containers must fit effortlessly in the transparent plastic bag, which must be perfectly sealed.

c) The plastic bag must be presented at the inspection post for its visual examination. Only one plastic bag per passenger can be allowed.

d) Exceptions must be made in case of medications, milk and baby food, as well as in case of passengers who require a special diet. There must be the appropriate means in place to verify the nature of these liquids.

Likewise, exceptions must be made regarding liquids purchased in the duty free shops at the airport or on board an aircraft, provided that these liquids are packed in a sealed plastic container foolproof against undue manipulations, and that a satisfactory proof (receipt) is produced showing that the article was acquired at the airport’s duty free shops, or aboard an aircraft on the traveling day(s) for passengers leaving an airport or being there on transit.

LANGUAGE
The official languages of Peru are Spanish, spoken by 73% of the population, and Quechua spoken by 24% of Peruvians. English is widely spoken in hotels and shops.

CURRENCY
Peru's official currency is the Nuevo sol ; its symbol is S/. The denominations in circulation are bills of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 nuevos soles; coins of 1, 2, and 5 nuevos soles; and coins of 5, 10, 20 and 50 céntimos of a nuevo sol. US$ are widely accepted.
At the moment, US$ 1.00 is worth around 3.50 Nuevos Soles.

TIPPING
Whilst tipping is a personal matter, we are happy to give some guidelines:
Most restaurants add a 10% tip. The total tip should be about 15%.
Doorkeepers should be tipped 1 US$ per bag. Taxi drivers do not expect a tip.

Full-day excursion : US$6.00 per person
Half-day excursion : US$3.00 per person

PHOTOGRAPHY
If you are taking photographs of local people, always ask their permission beforehand. Your guide can assist you in this. Do not take photographs of military installations or airports. Film is readily available in all tourist areas. It is advisable to carry your camera in a dust-proof bag. Photography or camera fees are applicable at most sights and museums; your guide can give you details of the latest charges.

ELECTRICITY
Power voltage in Peru is 220 Volts AC, 60 Hz. Most modern electrical appliances do not need adapters since they will accept both 110 as well as 220 AC voltages. Please make sure to check the voltage options of those artefacts you intend to take with you during your trip, such as hair dryers, battery chargers, notebooks and lap tops, video cameras, etc. Most of these do not usually need a special adapter, but it is important that you make sure of that before leaving your country of origin in order not to have to buy special 110 V / 220 V AC adapters, which, however, can be found in the local market here in Peru.

HEALTH
Vaccinations
Full details of the latest health requirements should be obtained from an authorized medical source, such as your doctor. There are no mandatory health requirements for Peru.
Because you are visiting Andean areas, don't forget to take precautions to avoid altitude sickness. Be sure to try hot tea or infusion of coca leaves on your arrival in the altitude; during your first day move slowly and eat lightly.

PERUVIAN GASTRONOMY
Peruvian cuisine is highly varied and spicy. Some of our typical dishes are: "cebiche" (raw fish marinated in lemon juice), "aji de gallina" (de-boned chicken cooked in a milk and aji sauce), and "anticuchos" (shish kebabs of beef heart and meat), apart from the typical dishes from each region.
Be sure to try "Pisco Sour", Peru's typical mixed drink prepared with pisco, lemon, egg white and sugar.Restaurants during your trip
In Lima: International, vegetarian and local food restaurants and franchises of international fast food chains.
In Ica: International and local food restaurants.

DRESS CODE
Dress in general is very casual unless you want to eat in one of the more expensive restaurants in Lima for example, in which case a tie and/or jacket will be required and smarter ladies' wear. Due to the altitude, it is important to remember whatever the season, to take some warmer woollens for the nighttimes drop in temperature.

IMPORTANT: We reserve the right to make changes to the order of the trip, without prior notice, due to changes in climate conditions, river water levels, flight or bus arrival and departure times or any other reason relevant to the best development of the trip.
