Luxury Cruise down the Amazon River with Aqua

What could be more serene and breathtaking than floating in luxurious comfort, deep into the Amazon rainforest and jungle.  It’s an amazing feast for the eye  as you explore remote places along the Amazon by water and by foot, spot unusual wildlife, and meet with local native people. 

Aqua Expeditions offers three, four and seven-night Amazon River luxury cruises in Peru. You will be transported into the Pacaya Samiria Reserve (Reserva Nacional Pacaya Samiria), located deep within the rainforest at the headwaters of the Amazon River basin. Pacaya Samiria is one of Peru’s most well preserved havens for Amazon wildlife, plants and birds.  Because Pacaya Samiria is only accessible by water, you will become one of only a handful of seasoned world travelers ever to have reached this remote destination on the Amazon River.

Leave from bustling town of Iquitos, Peru; a bustling city in South America, a nation that encompasses a diverse treasure trove of rich history, indigenous cultures, wildlife, natural resources and overwhelming beauty.  Meet the local people and be led by National Park Rangers to see some of the conservation and sustainability projects that are part of this vast reserve within the Amazon rain forest.

Not only is Peru surrounded by walls of green with almost 60% of its area lying in the Amazon rainforest,  it is also rich in history and culture.   See the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, an amazing remnant  from the great Inca Empire, the largest state in pre-Columbian America.  Explore rural haciendas and elegant churches built by the Spaniards, who conquered this rugged land of mountains, rivers, and valleys in the 16th century. Visit  the small villages and markets of Peru’s indigenous people–the women clad in rainbow-colored clothing topped by serious-looking bowler hats.

The Pacaya Samiria Reserve spans more than five million acres, making it twice the size of Yellowstone Park—and it is rich with both wildlife and aquatic life.

When you arrive at Pacaya Samiria Reserve, you will enter a world filled with birds in neon-brilliant colors, playful monkeys, graceful hawks and herons and millions of butterflies. You will have the opportunity to see hundreds of species, including the endangered pink Amazon dolphin, the three toed sloth—and perhaps, if you are very lucky—a sleek, black jaguar. 

In this glorious environment, parrots and macaws perch in trees as though posing . . . fuzzy orange and chic black howler monkeys munch on the treetop leaves . . . pre-historic looking iguanas, like mini-dinosaurs, laze in the sun. You will have the chance to watch long-legged cormorants fish for their dinner, and will probably see alligators cooling themselves in the river, and possibly from a safe distance, the legendary boa constrictor. -Aqua Expeditions

It would be hard to find a more diverse country anywhere in the world.  Home to 28 million people, many speaking Spanish, many also speaking the native language of Quechua. This mix of cultures has created cuisine, music, art, and folk traditions unlike any you will find anywhere else in the world.

In winter, when the river is high, visitors can explore the small inlets and various winding river systems that make up the Reserve’s flooded jungle. In summer, the river recedes and beautiful sandy river beaches form. central america,amazon river,amazon river cruise,lima,aqua expeditions,machu Picchu,natives,jungle,wildlife,exotic,birds,Quechua,luxury cruise,luxury travel,luxury vacation,monkeys,hawks,amazon dolphin,howler monkeys,black jaguar,Globally Gorgeous,maienza wilson globally gorgeous,Wow Boyz,launguage,cruise,amazon,peru,sounth america,Pacaya Samiria
