A two and a half hour flight from Lima brings you to Iquitos, the epitome of a steamy Amazon city. Hemmed in by lakes, rivers and dense forest on all sides, the only way in or out is by boat or plane.
Cruises from Iquitos vary in duration from three to seven nights and will commonly include stops for guided rainforest walks in the pristine Pacaya Samiria Reserve and a fascinating visit to an indigenous community, as well as excursions in smaller boats to explore narrow channels teeming with wildlife.
Itineraries will usually cover a short section of the famous Amazon River itself, but in reality the best wildlife is to be found on the tributaries such as the Ucayali and Marañon.
