Yes, but that should say Amazon and Ucayali river areas. I don't think there's a river called Loreto. Department yes but not river. At least I can't remember one. It's been a long time since I studied Peruvian geography at school The jungle includes several departments: Loreto, Ucayali, Amazonas, Madre de Dios, San Martin have all or most of their territory in the jungle. Others like Cuzco and La Libertad have part of their territories in the jungle. I don't know the precise distribution of the construction David Barrow
