Thanks to SAMAir, our trip to Mazamari took only 1 1/2 hours rather than 2 days!
Mazamari is also home to a Paratrooper training base. Shortly after arriving, 3 military helicopters landed. I talked with one of pilots about giving us a brief ride. Although it's possible, the guy I needed to speak with was on vacation till Thursday, so I was told to come back then. I also found out we can take military planes from Pucallpa to Lima. I can't wait to try it out.

Indian women washing their clothes in the River.
A typical house in Mazamari.
We did a quick flyover of Mazamari upon leaving. The town was surrounded by some beautiful mountains and apparently during the rainy season there are waterfalls everywhere.
