Amazonian rivers are just so full of magic!
OUR PACKAGE TOURS BELOW
There are many myths and legends connected to the Amazon Rivers and because the people still believe them – magic still exists!
If you ask local people from the villages along the River Huallaga – Do you believe in mermaids? They will say ‘When I was a small child I remember seeing a mermaid once.’ Very matter of fact ‘She looked a bit like you with blond hair and blue eyes, and with a blackish-plum tail that reflected in the light.’
