Iquitos: on a cruise through the Amazon

This is one of those things we must do once in a lifetime: go through the jungle slowly crossing the Peruvian Amazon River aboard an open cruise from Iquitos to the Pacaya Samiria Reserve. There are several companies that we can hire, most are luxurious and expensive. We found a Peruvian company a little more accessible with nice cruisers that mix steel and wood. The Arapaima has 14 cabins, all with windows that offer beautiful panoramic views.

The most recent is the Queen Violeta, which has 6 suites and 12 double cabins with private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning and beautiful views. Its capacity is for 34 passengers. From the bar located on the upper bridge you can see all the Amazonian low forest: immense trees, palms, macaws and birds of all colors, dolphins playing in the river … ah! and conceit is included on board. The shortest trips are to the Pacaya Samiria reserve. You can also explore the route to the triple border of Peru, Brazil and Colombia.

The expedition in the Queen Violeta costs per person from 869 to 1430 dollars for 4 days and 3 nights in double cabin, first deck.

Pucallpa: in a business hotel

In a few years Pucallpa became an ideal destination to disconnect a few days under the Amazonian sun. It offers several business hotels at offer prices on weekends. We recommend the Ucayali River Hotel that offers packages for couples or the recently inaugurated Casa Andina. Casa Andina is a chain with a very good reputation in the four corners of Peru. They opened a hotel in its Select category in Pucallpa, the equivalent of 3 superior stars.

The rooms are spacious with LCD TV, minibar, air conditioning and fan, wifi and iPod speakers for your smartphone.
