Stay at Delfin II, Iquitos
The Delfin II offers a wonderful Amazon experience. The four and five day itineraries start and finish at the frontier town of Nauta (one and a half hours by road from Iquitos) meaning that you spend the full compliment of time in the reserve and not sailing to reach your destination.
Delfin II, Iquitos, Peru
The Delfin II is built in the style of a classic Amazon River vessel. The vessel is purpose built for cruising the Amazon and on its four or five day itineraries, visits the pristine Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve which is one of the best areas for wildlife viewing in Peru's northern Amazon region.
There are fourteen suite cabins in total spread over two decks, each with private bathroom, wood panelling, shower, two open closets and air-conditioning units with remote control. Six standard suites are twin bedded and four have king size beds. The standard suites are side facing with panoramic windows. At the front of each deck there are two Master Suites with king size beds and panoramic windows affording side and forward views from the boat.
The observation deck and lounge is very spacious with a wooden floor, comfortable reclining chairs, a fully stocked bar and TV with DVD and video. The cosy dining room is air-conditioned with large panoramic windows and a window through to the kitchen so you can watch the chef in action. The Delfin II has two aluminium skiffs for excursions, flashlights for night excursions and ponchos with hoods and rubber boots in case of rain.
