     Frequent questions:


    How long in advance should you make a reservation?

    • Reservations can be a minimum of 48 hours in advance. However, places are limited and are always subject to availability. Tickets for Manu National Park, are in high demand, running out months in advance in some cases. For this reason, we recommend making the reservation as far in advance as possible.

    To qualify for discounts for children, students or the Andean community?

    • Participants occupying a place (seats and beds) pay normal rate.

    Are there prices by type of accommodation?

    • Not, on the tour we offer standard accommodation. If preferred accommodation is desired, it must be coordinated with the agency.

    What is the weather like in Manu?

    • Manu is located between the Andes Mountains and the Amazon jungle, having a warm and temperate climate, with an average minimum temperature of 12° C and an average maximum temperature of 24° C. From April to October is the dry season, that is, during that period there is a lower probability of rain, while from November to March is the rainy season. Despite the differentiation every day of the year there is the possibility of rain, since it is a tropical area (rain forest).
