Day 1 Embark | Iquitos, Peru

Fly from Lima to Iquitos on the afternoon flight. You are greeted upon arrival and transported to the M/V Cattleya Journey riverboat. Upon arrival, take some time to settle in, relax, and  have a drink as you get to know your fellow passengers. Savor the first of many wonderful dinners by the ship's talented chef as you begin your  journey along the Amazon. 

Day 2 Marañón River

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy breakfast as you cruise along the Marañón River. Board your excursion boat for a day-long excursion in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, the largest reserve in Peru and the second largest in all the Amazon. Travel by excursion boat from Yanayacu Creek to the remote Yarina Cocha. Take a rainforest hike and experience the huge biodiversity that the rainforest is known for! Watch for monkeys, sloths, tree-frogs, iguanas, pink and gray river dolphins, and many varieties of bird species. Examine and learn first-hand about jungle plants–their unique survival tactics as they compete for sun and nutrients in the dense rainforest, the part they play in sustaining the complex balance of life in the jungle, and the important medicinal value they offer. 

Day 3 Local Village Visit

In the afternoon, visit one of the local villages to gain a deeper insight into how people live in the Amazon. Meet a local shaman and participate in a traditional ceremony of spiritual healing.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
