Upon your arrival at the airport, The guides will be waiting for you to start the adventure. You will take a city tour of Iquitos, a colorful, dynamic city with a captivating past. On this tour, you will be able to appreciate the most emblematic attractions of the city. Then, you will transfer by private vehicle to the city of Nauta, the historic river port where you will embark. Upon arrival in Nauta (about two hours from Iquitos), you will board La Perla and the staff will accompany you to your cabin. All cabins are specially equipped for you to enjoy the most comfortable stay.
The ship will start sailing down the Marañón River, as the naturalist guides present the trip plan, the routes to follow, and the scheduled activities, and the best thing: they will begin to introduce us to the wonderful world of Amazon wildlife. Pay attention to their advice and recommendations, and keep in mind that if you have any doubts or questions, your guides will always be more than happy to assist. After this presentation, enjoy a welcome lunch, your first experience with the delights of regional cuisine. The menu offers several options, including a vegetarian alternative. If you have any particular requirement, please let the crew members know in advance, so that they can attend to it in a timely manner. Before dinner, you will start a night boat excursion to the Nauta Caño area, in search of animals that can only be seen when the sun goes down: alligators, bats, frogs, tarantulas, and other species that inhabit the Amazon basin. After this first immersion in the jungle world, you will return to the ship and enjoy dinner and then you can rest and recover energy for the next day.
