Take a tour of the beautiful Amazonian town of Nauta, located on the Marañón River on the Peruvian Amazon, up river from Iquitos. The MarañónRiver is only about 7 miles (11 km) from where the Amazon River is formed. Don't miss out on touring the Mirador de Nauta and take in the breathtaking bird's eye views of the Amazon and where it's believed the Marañón, Apurimac/Ucayali, and Mantaro Rivers converge and become the main tributaries for the Amazon River. On your Amazon River cruise or tour, look for the yellow-spotted river turtle, the pirarucu fish, crocodiles, and the Arrau turtle. Consider cruising the Amazon River on a small ship cruise in order to be able to access narrower rivers, smaller coves, and hidden beaches.
