Also you are most welcome to walk around near by the river, mountain, etc. Getting AroundLa Merced due to its pleasant weather and exotic scenery, and its surrounding countryside remains a popular destination for domestic tourists. The surrounding areas of the city feature waterfalls, whitewater creeks, jungle-like forest, tree-covered hills, rivers, traditionally living indigenous tribes, plantations and an abundance of wildlife and species of birds.
The town of La Merced offers many alternatives of entertainment for jungle lovers. The best thing: it´s only seven hours away from Lima. Trips by bus are highly recommended.
La Merced is reasonably close to:
•Thermal Pools de Uchubamba (Baños Termales)
•Puente Colgante Kimiri. Suspension bridge made in 1901
•Ecological reserve Santuario Pampa Hermosa. Offers to travelers the opportunity to see several species in their natural habitat. Monkeys, parrots, frogs, bears, butterflies, ants, birds, and even pumas, are just some of the species you can find through their mountains. In this magical place, it also usual to find huge trees, almost six hundred years old, and waterfalls, 100 meters high, reining between the caves and rocks.
•Communities Pampa Michi and San Miguel de Marankiari and check the amazing routes these communities keep safe only for the most adventurer trekkers
•From La Merced you can also get to towns like San Ramón, Oxampapa and Pozuzo. All of them are quite well connected and still preserve the magic from the first Peruvians combined with the influence of the German communities that settle down in this part of the country in the middle of the 20th century. For sure a trip you won´t forget.
•Catarata de Bayoz and Velo de la Novia
•Catarata del Tirol: You need to walk for about 15 minutes up a gorge to reach the waterfall, it’s a fairly easy walk up a well-made path.
•Catarata Ducha del Diablo
WHAT TO DO:
A variety of tours have hawkers in the central plaza in the morning until about 10:00. Most of the companies offer the same options.
•Perene Tour - this jungle overview tour is appropriate for all ages and abilities. It includes 2 waterfalls (you can swim at the bottom), a "native village", a coffee processor, a boat ride, and a stop for lunch. It runs about s/35 (about $11 US).
•Indiana Jones Tour - not the real name, but they will know what you are talking about. This trip takes you up a creek bed with several waterfalls that you climb with a rope through the water. At times you scale wet slippery rocks without a rope. Good physical condition is highly recommended (not by them, but by me!) Some groups also have 2 guides to help you up the waterfalls. If you're nervous you may want to ask around for a 2-guide tour
•Discoteca Kametsa Cafe Rock - A nightclub on the outskirts of town that is hopping on Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights with a fun and friendly crowd. Plays a heavily Latin mix: Bachata, Salsa, Merengue, Reggeaton, Cumbia, Latin Pop music & much more
Coffee and cocoa which are grown locally not to mention lots of fruit. Art and craft made by the Ashaninkas make good souvenirs also
TO EAT & DRINK:
•Casa de Allen has good burgers in 3 sizes, plus flaming crepes with ice cream. A bit out of town, but near the discoteca, so it's perfect for a dinner and dancing combo night.
•Biofresh ice cream, there is a small Biofresh store selling delicious ice creams as well as a small selection of liquors, chocolates and other regional produce. They serve a variety of ice cream flavours including many jungle fruits. The coffee, chocolate and coconut flavours are highly recommended.
•Los Kokis, Jr Tarma. Los Kokis serves traditional dishes from the jungle, as well as specialty liquors and coffees.
•Cerveza Artesanal. On the main highway, just down the hill from the bus station is a bar serving artesan beers and liquors Other Things to NoteFor further information do not hesitate to reach Jose by phone & (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) at: +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
