The faster more luxurious way to reach our guesthouse is to purchase a ticket for the speedboat (la rapido)

There are a couple of companys based in Iquitos that offer this service and we suggest you to use "Transporte Alexandra" there office is on Calle Yavari and this is also where you catch the coach for the firstpart of your journey, they drive you to a town called Nauta roughly 1.5 hours.

Here they transfer you and your luggage to a speedboat (rapido). The speedboat takes around two hours until you reach the port in our village Genaro Herrera. Either Chris or Paul will be waiting at the port to welcome you to the jungle. It costs 70 Soles and includes lunch


Its also possible to travel to La Casa del Otorongo from Tarrapoto, you need to catch a speedboat from Yurimaguas which takes 15 hours to Nauta. From Nauta you can catch another speedboat to our village Genaro Herrera (2 hours) 


From Pucallpa you can catch a slowboat to Genaro Herrera the name of the boat is called ''Henry'' it takes 2 or 3 days!


There are different fast boat services than run to here depending which day you plan to travel. All boats however take around 12 hours.
