|Fishing in the Yasuní Park
|4 to 15 days
In the Amazon region there are different varieties of sizes and fish, places to fish and techniques. We can choose to fish with other smaller fish, worms, grubs, red meat or fruit. The most sought-after fish are ones who have adapted to the area. The group will plan their activities when they arrive, choosing the type of fish they want according to conditions such as the height of the river or time of year, month or whether to fish by day or night.
There are different species in different rivers and lagoons. Some fish such as catfish, pike and araipama weigh up to 150kg.

Fishers must come with their own equipment according to the size of fish they want to catch.
