The Amazonian flora is blessed by Nature. In the middle of the jungle, there are innumerable edible, oleaginous, medicinal and coloring species. Of the 100,000 plant species present in Latin America, about 30,000 are found in the Amazon. The different degrees of humidity during the period of increased river flow, soil quality, winds and rainfall have led to the formation of very different vegetables. The vegetation can be divided into three types: The forests of the mainland, the Igapós Forests (marshes) and the Vega vegetation. Terra firme forests: They occupy non-flood lands. They have from 140 to 280 species per hectare, among them, the big trees of wood of law of the Amazon. In some places, the treetops are so large that they prevent up to 95% of sunlight from entering. The main representatives of this type of vegetation are the cedar and the mahogany, the angelim pedra and the chestnut tree of Pará.

The fauna is amazingly varied, constituted by 80% of the diversity of existing classes in the world, according to some scientists and experts of the area. A total of 643 species have been identified, within which each one has a variety of families, 326 are birds, 185 fish, 67 mammals, 37 amphibians and 28 reptiles.

The typical food of the Peruvian jungle has a flavor that makes the difference, distinguishing itself by using fruits such as coconut, meats like chicken and various fish to prepare their meals. In the central jungle the chanco, the trout and the banana are consumed more. In this region ingredients that are grown locally are often used. Many of these bananas are grown in Satipo, Chanchamayo in Junín and Oxapampa.
