Upon arrival at the airport, we will be waiting for you to take you to the Hilton Iquitos DoubleTree hotel, where you will receive the first orientation talk on the adventure you are about to begin. Then, we will head in a private vehicle, to the city of Nauta, the historical fluvial port where we will be boarding.
Before our arrival at Nauta, we will stop by Iquitos, a colorful and dynamic city with a captivating history. Here you will appreciate the most emblematic local attractions and for those who wish, enjoy a snack.
Once in Nauta (a couple of hours from Iquitos), we will board La Perla cruise ship and our staff will accompany you to your cabin, equipped especially for you, with all the comfort you need for a pleasant trip.
The ship will initiate the trip and head towards the confluence of the rivers Marañon and Ucayali, the rainforest’s majestic location where the Amazon River is born. Next, our naturalist guides will present the travel plan, the pre-established routes (road map) and the programmed activities, and best of all: they will begin to introduce you to the extraordinary world of Amazon’s wildlife. Pay attention to their advice and recommendations, and keep in mind that if you have any doubts or questions, our guides are here to help you.
Following the presentation aboard, we will have the welcome lunch, your first experience with the delights of regional cuisine. The menu offers various options, including a vegetarian alternative. If you have any particular restrictions or requirements, please let our crew know in advance so we can take care of it as soon as possible.
In the afternoon, we will start a boat outing to the area of San Joaquin de Omaguas, where we will explore the amazing flora and fauna in the area.
Towards the afternoon, we will go in search of those animals that can only be seen when the night falls: caimans, bats, frogs, tarantulas and other species found in our rainforest’s lush mounts.
After this first immersion in the Peruvian Amazon’s universe, we will go back to the ship to get some rest and recuperate energies.
