What's the Best Country to Explore the Amazon From?

Being the largest rainforest in the world, the Amazon Basin occupies about 40% of South America's land mass and lies within the borders of the countries of Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, and Guyana.

Here are Adventure Life's picks for the top 3 countries for a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the Amazon:

1) Ecuador has easy access to the Amazon (just half an hour flight from the capital of Quito),  and world class eco-lodges such as Sacha and La Selva which provide the most convenient, comfortable way to discover remote Amazonian wildlife and indigenous peoples like the Huaorani. Combine a tour of the Amazon with the Galapagos Islands for the ulitmate wildlife viewing vacation.

2) Peru also has excellent rainforest lodges and luxury cruise boats that navigate major tributaries of the Amazon. If you're visitng Machu Picchu, then the Puerto Maldonado and Manu National Park region is a quick flight away. The Iquitos region is more remote and only accessible by flights, but has some excellent river cruises.

3) Brazil is home to the majority of the massive Amazon basin, and hence long distances are required to reach logdges or cruise boats. The landscape tends to be flatter and wetter, and the ecosystems are different here than higher up in Andes in Ecuador and Peru. But, Brazil is the only country where you can cruise the Amazon River itself instead of just one of its tributaries.
