Peru Amazon: River Cruise Tour aboard the Perla

Peru Amazon: River Cruise – Cruise through the Amazon Rainforest aboard this historic cruise for a true once-in-a-lifetime experience. Be on the lookout for Pink River Dolphins, Monkeys, Caimans, Piranhas and more. Wake up early to the sounds of the jungle and get your binoculars ready for birdwatching explorations. This 5-Day, 4-Night cruise allows you to go deeper into the Amazon jungle to explore parts of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.

La Perla is an economically-priced cruise ship; built with the comfort in mind of a traveller who is looking to enter the heart of the Amazon jungle. It’s small draft allows it the ability to visit places that are difficult to access and where not all the boats can navigate. Auxiliary boats with outboard motor are the ideal complement to reach the most remote areas of the Amazon; allowing you to navigate to lagoons, narrow canals, streams, and flooded forests.

​Rest and relaxation also have their space aboard La Perla. Its outdoor hammock area is a privileged space from which to enjoy the Amazonian breeze while contemplating the sunset or where to recharge your batteries after an excursion to the confines of the jungle.

Tips for crew
Any additional extras not identified
There will be a pre-trek briefing held usually the evening before departure, at your hotel, to go over the details of the trek and any specific requirements not already captured
Prior to setting off we recommend you steer clear of street food and only eat in good restaurants, to avoid any stomach complaints. Peruvian food can be spicy, it can be strong and rich for many European diets. Likewise with tap water, it is largely untreated, so please avoid at all costs on arrival and stick to bottled water only or sterilised water if you have the right equipment.
We’ll ensure that we cater for all of your dietary needs, at the point of booking we’ll collect this information from you. We can secure special menu requests also for your trek party.
We are able to customise our treks to suit you, but usually our treks are guided by a professional bilingual guide, arriero (horseman) and mules to carry all equipment (passenger horses also available on request), and a mountain cook. They become a large part of your trekking expedition and it’s a great experience working together.
This is a really important part of your trip planning process, please find a link below which explains a little more about preparing for altitude.
Attached below are a couple of links which will explain how to prepare for your trip & trek in advance of your arrival. We recommend being prepared in advance to save time & stress whilst you’re in Peru.
From June through to the end of September, we’re offering one person free on all of our treks for group sizes of 3+. If you are a group of 2 you can add one person for free, or if you’re a group of 3 the third person joins free and so on.
