Amazonia – Peru or Ecuador
Hi, I need some advice….again.
I’m thinking of taking the family to South America in Summer 2018. Primarily we’re birders (sorry!) but increasingly catching the mammal bug. We’re thinking Ecuador and Peru. The planning is going well but the cost certainly ramps up a little when I start to look at visiting Amazonia. Does anyone have any views on whether we should choose the Manu region of Peru (we’ll most likely be visiting the Cusco area) or the Napo/Yasuni NP area of Ecuador? Is any better than the other for mammal watching opportunities? My family will insist on not too basic accommodation so some of the more remote places might be out, unfortunately.
Any recommendations or tips for either Peru or Ecuador (or both)? Or for any particular lodges, guides or tour companies?
Thanks in advance, Nick, UK
