Today we are taking you on a wild and luxurious adventure to the Peruvian Amazon with our friends Arianna Plevisani @aplevisani and Julien Donck. All aboard @delfinamazoncruises 🐒💕🙌🏽Arianna says, “Julien and I had an unforgettable trip aboard the Delfín, a cruise in the Pacaya Samiria reserve in the Peruvian Amazon. We flew from Lima to Iquitos, the largest city in the world which can only be reached by boat or plane. It is a treasure trove of color and life, where metropolis meets jungle. We spent a day there exploring the bizarre wares for sale at the Belén market and wandering the historic boardwalk, which overlooks the jungle and where the barons of caucho built their mansions during the heyday of rubber exploitation of the Amazon (hint: watch Fitzcarraldo). The next day we drove to Nauta to board the ship, which is nothing short of majestic. The suites all have huge windows to watch the jungle as you cruise, and each meal is delicious and focussed on local ingredients and flavors. Every day we had a different expedition planned, from trekking the jungle (we saw an anaconda) to swimming in the black waters of the Samiria river with pink river dolphins (they’re everywhere), and visiting local communities. We have fallen deeply in love with the Peruvian jungle and cannot wait to go back.” #amazon #amazonjungle #adventure #delfincruises #dolphins #travelphotography #luxury #jungle #explore #nature #goopgo #traveldeeper #peru #peruvianamazon #onlyravereviews
