Low Water in Amazon River Tour Problem

Low Water in Amazon River Tour Problem
As best I understand the water on the Amazon, Ucayali and all the headwater and tributaries are now receding. I wish to fly upriver on the Rio Yurua in the Department of Ucayali, Peru, then paddle and float downriver during high season to the Village of Breu whereby I would fly back to Pucallpa, Peru.

This trip is bereft with danger and problems. The anticipation of problems and timing are not strong skill sets of Peruvian people, this is more along the lines of Germans.

Anyway, I do it; the best time to navigate this river is during the months of January or February. The collection of information for this trip will take at least one month of preparations, not full time, yet daily collecting of equipment needed.

The cost of airfares is raising rapidly, the cost to return here in six months will be close to 1500 U.S. dollars minimum from wherever I am on the planet.
Money, travel is always about money, the blocker in the way.
