Ucayali Info
The department of Ucayali is located in the Peruvian Amazonia. Its capital, Pucallpa is the second largest city in the Peruvian Amazon after Iquitos. The department is home to a variety of geological monuments such as waterfalls. Tourist lodges are abundant in the region allowing visitors to experience the Peruvian Amazon firsthand. The large bodies of water such as the jungle rivers and lakes are perfect for aquatic sports such as water skiing, rowing, and fishing. The Ucayali river passes through the department and is the regions most important mode of transportation..

Ucayali Tourist Information

Pucallpa, whose name means “red land” in Quechua, is the capital of Ucayali and one of the most progressive cities in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest whose inhabitants make a living from logging and agriculture. The Panos people initially inhabited the department. The Ucayali River is one of the most important highways in the central jungle.
Lake Yarinacocha, one of the largest in the Amazon rainforest, is just a few minutes away from Pucallpa, and the Shipibo-Conibo people have settled along its shores. The place is perfect for rest and relaxation in the many tourist lodges and for enjoying water sports such as water skiing, rowing and fishing.

The area is also inhabited by the descendents of the Panos, people full of hospitality and skillful artisans who sell their works. Also located in the department is the Padre Abad Boquerón Water Channel, a narrow canyon with several waterfalls with curios names like Velo de la Novia (Bride’s Veil) and the Ducha del Diablo (Devil’s Shower).
