Cruise route plan

Iquitos > Nauta > Marañon River > Nauta Caño

Upon your arrival at the airport, we will be waiting for you to start the adventure. We will take a city tour of Iquitos, a colorful, dynamic city with a captivating past. In this tour you will be able to appreciate the most emblematic attractions of the city.

Then, we will transfer by private vehicle to the city of Nauta, the historic river port where we will embark. Upon arrival in Nauta (about two hours from Iquitos), we will board La Perla and our staff will accompany you to your cabin. All cabins are specially equipped for you to enjoy the most comfortable stay.

The ship will start sailing down the Marañón River, as the naturalist guides present the trip plan, the routes to follow and the scheduled activities, and the best thing: they will begin to introduce us to the wonderful world of Amazon wildlife. Pay attention to their advice and recommendations, and keep in mind that if you have any doubts or questions, our guides will always be more than happy to assist.

After this presentation, enjoy a welcome lunch, your first experience with the delights of regional cuisine. The menu offers several options, including a vegetarian alternative. If you have any particular requirement, please let our crew members know in advance, so that we can attend to it in a timely manner.

Before dinner, we will start a night boat excursion to the Nauta Caño area, in search of animals that can only be seen when the sun goes down: alligators, bats, frogs, tarantulas and other species that inhabit the Amazon basin.

After this first immersion in the jungle world, we will return to the ship and enjoy dinner and then you can rest and recover energies for the next day.

Upon arrival in Nauta (about two hours from Iquitos), we will board La Perla and our staff will accompany you to your cabin. All cabins are specially equipped for you to enjoy the most comfortable stay.

The ship will start sailing down the Marañón River, as the naturalist guides present the trip plan, the routes to follow and the scheduled activities, and the best thing: they will begin to introduce us to the wonderful world of Amazon wildlife. Pay attention to their advice and recommendations, and keep in mind that if you have any doubts or questions, our guides will always be more than happy to assist.

After this presentation, enjoy a welcome lunch, your first experience with the delights of regional cuisine. The menu offers several options, including a vegetarian alternative. If you have any particular requirement, please let our crew members know in advance, so that we can attend to it in a timely manner.

Before dinner, we will start a night boat excursion to the Nauta Caño area, in search of animals that can only be seen when the sun goes down: alligators, bats, frogs, tarantulas and other species that inhabit the Amazon basin.

After this first immersion in the jungle world, we will return to the ship and enjoy dinner and then you can rest and recover energies for the next day.

    We have been at El Zafiro de Jungle Experiences from December 28 to January 04, 2020. It has exceeded all our expectations. It has been a journey that we will never forget. We thank all the staff, we do not mention names so as not to leave us to anyone, all their dedication, efficiency, kindness and details. Great food.

    When I booked and read the comments, I thought that maybe people were exaggerating, but the truth is that it is a spectacular trip and everything I had read fell short. Also, to round off the trip we have met some fabulous travel companions.

    Thank you, thank you for everything

  • Peter Rittenhouse & Denise Lokhost

    Zafiro, 2022

    We had a wonderful time in the Amazon! We especially enjoyed the walk through the jungle and the nighttime cruise. We really enjoyed meeting and visiting the local village. However, we felt that the dance by the women was too sexualized and made us uncomfortable. Angela, Danny, Uber, Charlie, and Jimmy were all outstanding and provided excellent service at all times. Thank you, mucho gracias

    The crew of the Zafiro are simply amazing and I will return again to get to know them better. The Naturalists are passionate about the Amazon and extremely knowledgeable about all life in the Amazon. I’ve traveled a lot over the past 52 years and this week has been my best experience.

    Gina and myself are amazed at the love, care and dedicating the crew and naturalists to preserve the Amazon rainforest, it’s people and all animals. Don’t be surprised to see us back again.
