3-Night/4-Day Cruise Program
Iquitos Round-Trip

(Sample Program Itinerary)

Arrive Iquitos

Iquitos is a bustling river city and the largest in the Peruvian Rainforest.   The Metropolitan area has 600,000 people living in its four districts.  During the 20th century the city attracted many Europeans immigrants; they contributed to a period of great wealth and social and commercial development.  The rubber boom and the associated need for a large workforce had a significant negative effect on the indigenous population.  Slavery and gross human rights abuses were widespread, and in some areas 90% of the Indian population was wiped out. 

Transfer by coach to Embarkation port at the Itaya River just front of Iquitos City.  Embark ship.  After a short orientation and Happy Hour, enjoy your first night’s dinner onboard.

Tahuayo and Yarapa River and creeks

AM: Tahuayo River

This morning we will have the chance to search for the most elusive and exotic fresh water pink river dolphin, medium sized, long snout and little or no dorsal fin you will see that they are really pink, This is a favorite feeding spot for these dolphins.  Opportunity to jump into the dark waters and enjoy a refreshing swim in this pristine area. 

PM: Yarapa River and creeks

Amazon Rainforest - PeruAnother tributary of the Amazon River, along Yarapa River, you will explore its shores and small creeks in search of rare and unusual Amazonian wildlife.  Small monkeys, birds, and iguanas are just some of the creatures on our list.  Tropical flowers and plants grow wild along the riverbanks, allowing you to witness the marvelous dynamics of the Amazon Rainforest.

Cano Piranha or Marayali / Tamishiyacu Creek / San Francisco Village

AM: Amazon Headwaters, skiff exploration at Cano Piranha or Marayali, San Francisco Village. 

Ucayali and/or Maranon Rivers - PeruThis morning you awake in the historic place of the Peruvian Amazon where the Ucayali & Marañon Rivers merge and give birth to the mighty Amazon River.  After exploring the area, visit the community named San Francisco where you can stroll around the small village, seeing the local people’s houses and how simple their daily life is.  You will be warmly greeted by lots of happy and smiling children and an opportunity to visit the school (pending school in session).  The local teacher will also be there to answer any questions you have.  Meet the local townspeople in the arts and craft market, led by the village women and children. 

PM: Tamishiyacu creek

This tributary of the Amazon River has small clusters "ribereños" people (those who live symbiotically with the rivers) who make their living with small scale agricultural and charcoal commerce.  Visit a local shamanic healing clinic and meet with a native shaman who will introduce you into the mythical world of hallucinogenic and medicinal plants in this region of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest.

Iquitos / Disembarkation

We will have a panoramic city tour, remember that Iquitos is the farthest inland port that serves ocean vessels in the world.  We will pass thru the remains of wonderful houses that hosted "Rubber Barons" in the beginning of the 20th century.  After disembarkation, we will visit the Manatee Rescue Center, a fantastic project that is committed to save orphaned manatees and reinsert them in the wild.  You'll learn about them and why they are so endangered in this part of the Amazon.

Transfer to the airport for your return flight.
