Located in the Manu Province of southeastern Peru, the Manu Rainforest is considered one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth. In other words, if you've been in the market for isolation and complete immersion in the Amazon jungle, it looks like you've found it.
Just a harrowing mountainside bus ride northeast from Cuzco, the southernmost entrance to the Manu National Park is accessible via the quaint town of Paucartambo. Experience incredible wildlife diversity (we're talking 1,000+ bird species, around 500 different kinds of mammals, reptiles and amphibians, etc.), memorable boat rides down the Rio Manu, and some of the most amazing Amazon scenery available in South America. If you have an extra week to spare, and a little expendable cash on hand (due to its isolated location, 4-5 day visits the Manu National Park usually run upwards of $1000 US), it's an authentic Amazon adventure not to be missed.
