Los Amigos is Amazon Conservation's Biological Station located in lowland Amazonian forest at the base of Peru’s southern Andes. Having the chance to spend a month here was a great oportunity to see plants and wildlife.
Travelling to CICRA takes 6-7 hours along the Madre de Dios.

During dry season there are sometimes coldspells when temperatures drop below 10C. Visibility can be particularly good then allowing to see all the way from the lowland Amazon to the peaks of the Andes.
