Another bucket-list cruise item is an Amazon River Cruise.
Start your journey in Lima, Peru with a trip to the famous ruins of Machu Pichu, and then on to Iquitos for the start of your epic Amazon river adventure. Ablaze with rouged macaws and parrots in all multitudes of “lumo” colours lolloping and swooping from under the canopy. At sunset you can listen to the croaking of tree frogs amid the screech and chatter of howler monkeys. Here too you’ll meet sloths, rare pink dolphins, piranhas and shaggy-tailed monk saki monkeys, and tamarinds, while humming birds flit from one giant lily to lily another across mirror flat lakes. Get to meet the native ribereños, the local inhabitants who ply the waterways in their dug out canoes. If you want to be truly at one with nature, whilst exploring the full extent of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve this Amazon river cruising at its best.
