Port of Bellavista (Nanay River)
Bellavista is located at the extreme north of the city on the Nanay River. Just take a mototaxi north on Avenida Marina until you reach the port. In addition to the port, you will encounter a market that specializes in fresh fish. Here you can sample some freshly grilled fish or if you are an adventurous eater, try the suri (palm beetle larvae). Locals use suri as a traditional medicine for bronchitis. At the port you can rent a boat and driver to visit the Butterfly Farm, and Bora and Yagua tribes, but better to travel like the locals on the water taxi shuttle boat to the village of San Andrés. The boat drivers who rent their boats and services are notorious for swindling tourists for as much as $100, while the water taxi costs about one sole.
