From Cusco take a flight to Lima and then to the jungle town of Iquitos. This is the heart of the Amazon and the headwaters of the greatest ecological zone on earth. A motor boat takes you 25 miles downstream to the Ceiba Tops Lodge, a beautiful sanctuary with air-conditioned rooms, hot water showers, and a relaxing pool and waterslide! A local guide shares some of the secrets of this ecological treasure as you look for monkeys, tapirs, capybara, macaws, toucans, and more. At night, enjoy cool drinks while listening to the sound of the forest at night.

Day 1: Arrive Iquitos - Amazon Lodge

Arrive at the Iquitos airport and meet the friendly staff from Ceiba Tops Lodge. After driving through the town of Iquitos, arrive at the main dock. A twenty-five-mile journey down the Amazon River by motorized boat brings you to the lodge, where private rooms with air conditioning and hot water provide all of the comforts of home. Box lunch. Enjoy an afternoon hike in the beautiful primary rainforest reserve surrounding Ceiba Tops, where you can see enormous trees festooned with epiphytes. After dinner, enjoy local flute and guitar music at the El Toucan Bar or chat with the guides about the legends and history of the Amazon forest.

You'll also have the opportunity to engage in craft trading or purchase local artisanal products and enjoy a demonstration of the Yagua blowgun, which some in the village still use for hunting.

Join an afternoon boat adventure along the Amazon River, a quest to see either of the incredible pink and gray freshwater dolphins found in the river. Besides dolphin-watching, there's a chance to go fishing and witness the amazing diversity of fish species in the Amazon River, including the notorious piranha.
