Río Mayo - Other Activity Moyobamba - Peru

The Río Mayo defines the north edge of Moyobamba city. On the cliff above the Río Mayo are two lookout points with views of the jungle and river: Punta de Tahuishco (end of Jr Puno) and Mirador de San Juan (end of Jr Piura). From Tahuishco, a steep staircase leads down to the Río Mayo, where there is a market and typical restaurants. From the port, you can take a local boat to villages upstream, or hire one to take you into the Patanos del Alto Mayo wetlands.
