Luxury Amazon Cruise- The Delfin I Suite

Aboard the Amazon’s top luxury Amazon cruises, you will enjoy high quality service and guided tours to see colorful tropical birds, flowers and numerous Amazon Rainforest monkeys.

You will explore the waterways with your highly trained naturalist guide. Your guide will be pointing out colorful birds, giant Amazon lilies, river dolphins and many other Amazon sights.

And after your exciting excursions, you will return to your comfortable vessel. You will then enjoy gourmet cuisine and luxurious comfort while discussing your finds and experiences.

We will focus on two of the best locations for an Amazon Cruise. These are Iquitos in northern Peru and El Coca in Ecuador.

Iquitos is the largest city in the world unreachable by road and is on a tributary of the Peruvian Amazon River called the Itaya.

El Coca is the other name of Puerto Francisco de Orellana and sits on an Amazon tributary called the Napo River in Ecuador.

Both of these river cities are your gateways to incredible areas of the Amazon Rainforest.

This western section of Amazonia contains the most abundant and diverse animals and plants, making it an ideal place to surround yourself with nature, escaping the stresses and routine of a busy life.
