Amazon Tour Reviews

This trip was truly the trip of a lifetime. Jesus really submerges you into the Peruvian culture and the three days you’re there, you are nonstop with activities. Our guide was so knowledgeable and he made the trip. His family grew up in the rainforest so he was able to tell you the history about most things there (the families, the foods, the animals etc). We went during rainy season, and still had a wonderful time. If you’re looking for adventure, meeting wonderful people, and being in nature - this trip is for you!
I had a wonderful time. So many great experiences, swimming in the Amazon, ziplining in the jungle, nature hikes, animal sanctuaries. The hotel grounds are wonderful. And the food is delicious. Staff is super attentive and friendly. Great place if you just want to chill but also lots of optional activities.
First time in the jungle and Nicky Amazon lodge made it one of the best experiences of my life.Evi our guide was a walking talking Google. How he managed to locate animals birds and insects amongst the jungle foliage I don't know.Even when he pointed them out I found it at first hard to see.He new every bird animal and insect by name .His knowledge of the various eco systems was amazing. The lodge was just as you would expect helpful polite nothing to much trouble.Food was excellent freshly prepared with plenty of local flavors .Our lodge was excellent hot shower room service every day. A great big tick for all the staff at Nicky lodge just amazing.

"We spent 4D/3N in the Paradise Lodge. It was a fantastic experience. We had two outstanding guides: Fernando and Saul. We had programs from early morning to late night. The highlight was the trip to the Sadokal Lake. It's simple amazing. The best fun was fishing on Rio Madre de Dios. We even caught some fish. The food was unbelievable in the middle of the jungle. I strongly recommend this tour everybody who wants to go to the jungle.

Amazon FAQs

Thinking about an Amazon trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Amazon Vacation Planning page for in-depth Amazon travel tips.

For many reasons, the best time to visit the Amazon is from June – November. During this time, the Amazon Rainforest experiences its dry season – meaning the water levels are lower, allowing access to forested areas and greater opportunities for land-based exploration excursions. However, it’s important to note that as the largest rainforest in the world, the Amazon experiences approximately 250 days of rain a year, spanning all months. Despite having varying seasons, like the “wet” season (December – May), travelers should expect a few hours of light rain at any point in the year. The rain is what continues to keep the rainforests and its rare flora and fauna alive.

Yes, traveling to the Amazon Rainforest is safe! In Brazil’s main center for visiting the Amazon – Manaus, you’ll always have guided activities with expert naturalist guides to help you navigate the jungle. Outside of town make sure you have all recommended vaccinations, according to your doctor and that you take a Malaria prophylaxis. Although along the Rio Negro, where most travelers go, there are very few mosquitoes!

All Amazon lodges and cruises offer jungle walks guided by local professionals to get to know the vegetation. Discover the importance of medicinal plants, spot vibrant macaws and parrots, and learn to identify the calls of rare animals. While listening to the sounds of the animals in the jungle is a common experience, actually spotting the fauna can be difficult. Travelers may consider the Pantanal wetlands for wildlife spotting, as it is less dense than the Amazon. Piranha fishing is also very popular. Local guides can also take you to different areas where other animal species can be seen, such as the pink river dolphins or macaws. Alligator (jacare) spotting at night is one of the most fascinating activities.

In general, the Amazon Jungle is not dangerous for travelers! Animals in the Amazon are not aggressive, as there is plenty of food available. Even the aforementioned “alligator” is a “caiman,” the peaceful cousin of the crocodiles you have heard about from Australia and the Florida Everglades. Your guide will always make you aware of toxic plants or spiders. Most guides are from the local communities, knowing well the healing properties of the plants that surround you. The one element to be aware of is Malaria: there is no vaccination, rather prophylaxis you take before traveling to the Amazon and stop taking as soon as you depart.

If visiting the Amazon in Brazil, you’ll get to the Amazon rainforest mostly by flying into Manaus, or for a more remote experience, by flying into Alta Floresta, with its luxurious lodge, or into Tefé for the most remote experience possible. In Peru, the main access points are Puerto Maldonado, Manu and Iquitos. In Bolivia, it is Rurrenabaque, Coca in Ecuador and Leticia in Colombia.

No – There are different areas with different flora and fauna. The main difference is caused by the altitude. Most of the Brazilian part is at sea-level or only slightly above it, whereas in Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia, the rainforest sits on higher ground. The higher, the less dense the fauna is. Therefore, for example, if you are interested in birding, you would prefer the Peruvian Rainforest, as, due to the fauna being less dense, it is easier to spot birds. The Peruvian Amazon also offers some of the most luxurious river cruise ships such as the Aria. The Brazilian Amazon Rainforest offers travelers a wide range of lodges and cruises. Embark on a large cruise ship such as Hurtigruten or Iberostar, or a small, intimate cruise such as the Tucano. The Ecuadorian Amazon boasts Yasuni National Park, home to millions of species of plants, birds, insects, and mammals.

Typically, you would stay at a lodge or cruise along the river. It depends on what kind of experience interests the traveler(s). The advantage of a lodge is that your stay in the Amazon Rainforest can begin at any time, whereas cruises have set departure dates. While cruises offer plenty of departure dates, it can be challenging to be on a strict schedule. On the other hand, the advantage of a river cruise is that you see a vast extent of the rainforest, with different animals and vegetation, without needing to turn back after each excursion. Cruises also tend to include a stop at local communities where you can experience and learn about the lives of Amazonian locals. Whether you experience the Amazon on a cruise ship or nestled in a lodge, you’re sure to have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

When is the best time to travel to the Amazon Rainforest?

The best time to visit the Amazon Rainforest in Peru is dependent on which region of the Amazon you prefer to experience. In the Northern Amazon, like Iquitos, the best time to visit is during the wet season or high water season from December-May in order to take advantage of boat excursions that elevate you closer up to the animals. In the Southern Amazon, like Puerto Maldonado, the best time to visit is during the dry season from May-September which conveniently correlates with the best time to visit Machu Picchu.

What are the best places to visit in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest?

Do i need vaccinations for an amazon rainforest tour.

The CDC recommends yellow fever, hepatitis A, typhoid, and measles vaccines for traveling to Peru, though they are not required for entry. Malaria medication is recommended for remote parts of the jungle. All travelers should consult with their doctor before traveling.

How can I protect myself from mosquitoes in the Amazon Rainforest?

The best way to protect yourself from mosquito bites while on an Amazon Rainforest tour is to wear protective clothing and insect repellant. Clothing such as light-weight long sleeved shirts and long pants that cover exposed skin on legs can then be sprayed with insect repellant. Regularly reapply repellent to your skin and clothes as rain and sweat can reduce its efficacy.

What should I pack for an Amazon Rainforest tour?

The following are good things to pack for your visit to the Amazon Rainforest:

  • Sturdy hiking shoes
  • Waterproof case for phone/camera
  • Waterproof sandals or flip flops
  • Fast-dry clothing
  • Personal medications
  • Journal for jotting your thoughts and observations
  • Water bottle
  • Water-resistant jacket that is lightweight and easy to put in your day pack.
  • Rain poncho
  • Two bathing suits/swimming trunks
  • Sweater or hoodie for the evening.
  • One or two pairs of hiking pants for rugged rainforest walks
  • One or two pairs of shorts
  • One or two long sleeve shirts (100% cotton is great for the jungle)
  • Three pairs of cotton socks
  • Two to three short sleeve shirts
  • Insect repellant with DEET
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Sunblock of at least 15 SPF
  • Toiletries like toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash etc
  • First aid kit with bandages, aloe, antibiotics, pain reliever, etc.
  • Contact lenses and extra pair of eye-glasses if you wear glasses.
  • Flashlight or headlamp with extra batteries
  • Sun/rain hat
  • Plastic bags (zip lock bags and a larger trash bag)
  • Swiss army style knife

What is the ideal amount of time for an Amazon Rainforest tour?

The ideal amount of time for an Amazon Rainforest tour is 4-days and 3-nights. With both Amazon lodge and Amazon River Cruise itineraries using the first and last dates as respective arrival and departure days, the 4-day/3-night program includes 2 full days of jungle tours and maximizes your time in the Amazon.

Should I choose an Amazon jungle lodge or an Amazon river cruise?

If you want a luxury Amazon Rainforest experience, opt for high-end cruise options in Iquitos like Delfin. Amazon River Cruises feature amenities like air-conditioning and floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the jungle as you pass by in comfort.

Lodge experiences range from rustic to resplendent and can cater to many different price ranges. Lodges allow you to explore their expansive properties and provide special opportunities to spot animals.

Both experiences are unique and include daily excursions into the Amazon Rainforest with naturalist guides.

Is the Peruvian Amazon safe?

The Peruvian Amazon is a safe place to travel to, especially the areas visited on an organized tour arranged by Inca Expert. With violent crime virtually unheard of in touristic areas, the greatest safety concern comes from insect bites carrying yellow fever or malaria, or improperly handled food. You can protect yourself by having all recommended vaccinations, wearing insect repellent, and by eating at reputable restaurants. Travelers should avoid remote parts of the Peruvian Amazon where illegal mining and logging are prevalent.

How do I get to the Amazon Rainforest from Lima or Cusco?

Flights operate directly from Lima to Iquitos and Puerto Maldonado with daily schedules. Flights operate from Cusco to Iquitos three times a week, while daily flights fly from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado.

The bus journey from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado is 11-12 hours. Iquitos is not accessible by road and can only be easily accessed via flight.

How to choose an Amazon vacation

While planning trips to the rainforest, we often ask our travelers what kind of Amazon journey they’d like to embark on: Based at a lodge or on a riverboat cruise? Both great options, but have their unique characteristics.While planning trips to the rainforest, we often ask our travelers what kind of Amazon journey they’d like to embark on: Based at a lodge or on a riverboat cruise? Both great options, but have their unique characteristics.

  • More flexibility , given there are no set departure dates
  • A more in-depth experience , as you’ll be staying in the rainforest itself, where creatures of the jungle – including birds and monkeys – will be your neighbors
  • More room for free-time roaming , as you’ll be free to explore nearby paths early in the morning or late in the afternoon, before and after your day’s activities
  • The rustic elegance of your accommodations  — with natural surroundings, thatched roofs and materials native to the region—giving travelers the feeling of really being in the rainforest

However, the tradeoffs of a lodge-based stay include occasional glitches like the electricity going out for short periods, supplies delayed from upriver, unstable or non-existent Wi-Fi, etc.

  • First-Class Amenities:  luxury riverboats are often considered “floating boutique hotels,” attended to by fully-trained staff and crew members, enjoying excellent food, air-conditioned rooms, regular access to hot water, and comfortable lounge areas and balconies.
  • Covering more ground  during short trips, allowing embarkations for day trips at a number of destinations along the river
  • Trips to pristine locations:  A cruise can allow you to discover places largely untouched by tourism, whereas the trails at most lodges are more well-trodden
  • Easier excursions:  With less hiking involved, excursions from cruises tend to be a bit easier, which is especially great for older or younger guests

What you’ll experience on a vacation in the Amazon

Explore the Amazon, one of the planet’s most diverse ecosystems, teeming with exotic flora and fauna. Witness the electrifying calls of howler monkeys in the treetops, spot the gleaming eyes of caimans during nighttime jungle safaris, and observe families of Giant otters on serene lakes. The Amazon also offers a unique cultural experience, with indigenous communities. Participate in mesmerizing ceremonies led by traditional shamans and capture the beauty of the rainforest and its rivers through your lens. Immerse yourself in the Amazon’s natural wonders and rich indigenous traditions

Is it safe to visit Amazon

While Amazon rainforest visits are generally safe, it’s crucial to be aware of potential risks, especially when delving deep into the jungle. Surtrek prioritizes your safety during Amazonian tours, whether on riverboat cruises or at luxury jungle lodges. We select top-rated accommodations with CPR-trained staff, first-aid supplies, and close communication with local health and security professionals. These accommodations serve fresh, properly prepared food and purified bottled water, while experienced local guides accompany you throughout your Amazonian journey. To further ensure a safe adventure, travelers can also follow some common-sense steps:

  • Getting the appropriate vaccinations and medications  before  you go to the Amazon
  • Protecting yourself from mosquito bites (using insect repellant, wearing long sleeve shirts…)
  • Keeping a safe distance from wild animals and NOT provoking them
  • Not drinking tap water or using ice cubes
  • Rinsing fruit in purified water
  • Keeping an eye on your luggage and take practical steps to avoid pick-pocketing in tourist areas

Best Time to experience the Amazon

The Amazon experiences distinct seasons, often referred to as the “low water” and “high water” seasons due to frequent rainfall. The ideal time to explore the Amazon basin, especially for rainforest hiking, is during the low-water season from June to November. Fewer daily showers, lower rivers, and accessible hiking trails make it easier to explore deeper parts of the jungle on foot. Additionally, the low-water season means fewer mosquitoes, and wildlife gathers around remaining wet areas, enhancing your chances of wildlife encounters. In contrast, the high-water season from December to May brings rising rivers, which facilitate waterway navigation but may flood some jungle trails

What to pack for the Amazon

Packing for an Amazonian rainforest adventure is a unique challenge. While the jungle heat is expected, travelers often overlook frequent heavy rains, jungle critters, weight limits on flights, and high humidity. Beyond the conditions, you’ll encounter extraordinary activities like piranha fishing, nocturnal river safaris, wildlife treks, and kayaking on the Amazon River. To ensure you’re well-prepared, Surtrek provides a detailed packing list after booking your unforgettable rainforest adventure. In general, we recommend including the following types of clothing and gear:

Getting to the Amazon

The Amazon region is vast, covering around 40% of all South America and spans into eight countries. Below, Surtrek has selected three of the most popular countries for accessing and experiencing the mysteries of the Amazonian rainforest:

  • Ecuador:  Access to the Ecuadorian Amazon is easy. After landing in the capital city of Quito, Surtrek guides will meet you and assist you with making a short 45-minute flight to the Amazon. Landing at a local airport, you will be transferred to a  world-class eco-lodge  or  Amazonian riverboat  via a 4×4 vehicle or a motorized canoe to begin an unforgettable adventure.
  • Peru:  Home to the second largest area of the Amazon, the Peruvian Amazon is also the most wildlife-rich. When you touch down in Lima, Surtrek partners will be there to welcome and accompany you throughout your lodge-based tour or  Peru riverboat adventure . You will fly to one of two areas in Peru to experience for your Amazonian tour. Spend time in either in the northern Peruvian Amazon outside the city of Iquitos or in the southeastern Peruvian Amazon, where the most visited areas are the Tambopata National Reserve and Manu National Park (Manu is assessable via Cusco, so can be more easily combined with a  Machu Picchu tour ).
  • Bolivia:  The  Bolivian Amazon  is just as biologically diverse as Brazil’s yet visited by fewer tourists. To begin your once-in-a-lifetime adventure here, upon your arrival in the Bolivian capital of La Paz, you will be assisted in flying to the town of Rurrenabaque – the gateway to the Bolivian rainforest. After being welcomed in that town, Surtrek representatives will transfer you to the local river’s dock for a motorized canoe ride into Madidi National Park and onward to your upmarket lodge, shrouded in the mysteries of the Amazonian rainforest.

I booked an all-inclusive trip to the Amazon rainforest, and I can't believe how much I got for $90 a day

  • I spent about three days at an all-inclusive lodge in the Amazon rainforest for $270.
  • I had to take a two-hour bus and a two-hour canoe ride to get to my overwater lodge . 
  • I spent my time spotting animals, hiking, swimming, and taking in the peaceful setting.

Insider Today

As a child, I dreamed of visiting the Amazon rainforest, but I always envisioned it being wildly inaccessible.

Traveling, especially internationally, is expensive. Looking at lodging alone, hotel prices shot up by 1.7% between April and May, according to NerdWallet's Travel Price Index .

So when I found a three-day, all-inclusive tour of the Amazon rainforest at Green Forest Ecolodge for just $270, I knew I had to go.

The package included all my meals, bus and canoe transfers, a private lodge, and up to four activities a day.

Here's what it was like.

It was a bit of a hike to get there

After landing in Ecuador, I hopped on an overnight shuttle from Quito to Lago Agrio. Still slightly sleepy, I splurged and spent a few dollars on a taxi from the bus station to Magic Hostal, the designated meeting spot.

From there, a driver met me for a complimentary transfer to the canoe launch. The drive took about two hours, winding through suburbs and navigating a mixture of tarmac and grit roads.

After jumping off the minibus, the real adventure started. I was ushered toward the river, where a guide placed my luggage in a thick plastic bag on a canoe to keep it dry.

He then helped me board the precariously wobbling vessel and gave me a green poncho (it's not called the rainforest for nothing).

With that, we were on our way to the lodge

A driver steered the vessel while a tour guide kept a sharp eye out for wildlife. They seemed to understand that time was of the essence in my short three-day stay.

The most exciting sighting was squirrel monkeys — sociable little primates that leaped along overwater branches. But by the time the two-hour canoe ride was over, I'd already seen multiple monkey species, birds, and a sloth.

It started raining as the canoe navigated the last few bends of the Cuyabeno River. I was dry under my fancy green poncho, but not wearing waterproof mascara was definitely a poor choice.

The overwater lodges were connected by a green boardwalk

I was ecstatic as we approached the wooden dock and I got my first glimpse of the lodge I'd be staying in.

I opted for a private overwater bungalow with a terrace and hammock. The double bed inside came equipped with a mosquito net, and the bathroom was semi-open and overlooked the jungle.

Related stories

It was truly beautiful.

Meals were a sociable and elaborate occasion with the other guests

Lunch was served right away. Everyone staying here ate together three times a day in the main lodge, and a bell rang to announce each meal.

Meals consisted of three courses of traditional Ecuadorian cuisine.

There was a starter, main, and dessert at lunch and dinner , and breakfast was a mixture of fruit, toast, and a hot meal. Unlimited hot drinks and bottled water were also available 24/7.

I'm vegetarian, and I was a little worried about the food and drink situation, but I didn't have any issues during my stay. The staff were very conscious of food quality and water safety, so I wasn't worried about getting sick.

I experienced so many excursions as part of my all-inclusive package

On the first day alone, I saw caimans (alligatorid species) and took a guided night hike.

I spotted all kinds of nocturnal creatures like tarantulas.

The second day was busier, starting with a hike through the thick jungle.

While treading through the wet soil — that's almost orange from the high levels of clay — I saw a snake and owl monkeys before crossing some swamp terrain.

Along the way, our guide, Elvis, taught us about the rainforest. I learned poisonous snakes in the Amazon have a triangular head and that indigenous Cuyabeno communities believe copal resin wards off negativity.

I'd been nervous about swimming in the Amazon, but it was surprisingly warm

Later on the second day, I'd scheduled a sunset lagoon swim.

On the way, we saw pink dolphins and woolly monkeys and heard roaring howler monkeys.

I wasn't sure what to expect, and I was a little nervous about swimming (it wasn't exactly balmy). But after diving into the lagoon from the canoe, everything was peaceful.

It was a refreshing bit of solitude as Elvis played music from a speaker.

On the boat ride back, we spotted adult caimans that looked straight out of "Jurassic Park." Their unnerving yellow eyes were shuddering but impressive.

The third day was short and sweet but still amazing

My final morning started with a quick birdwatching excursion. I spotted toucans, macaws, and a nesting red heron.

But after breakfast, it was time to head back out on the canoe to transfer to Lago Agrio.

I couldn't believe the value I got for my money

Visiting the Amazon rainforest was the opposite of what I expected. It was budget-friendly and serene, not expensive and uncomfortable.

After my stay, I realized $270 for three days of food, lodging, and activities was a ridiculously good deal — especially since I got to see caimans, pink river dolphins, five species of monkeys, and hundreds of insects and birds.

I'd definitely recommend the experience, even for the squeamish or those who don't think they're outdoorsy.

New travel deals for Amazon Prime members on cruises, rental cars, flights and more

These savings on travel come in time for any last-minute summer vacations.

Amazon Prime Day is fast approaching, and beyond viral beauty products or hot new kitchenware, the e-commerce giant is introducing savings on travel just in time for any last-minute summer vacations.

Amazon partnered with various travel companies, including Southwest Airlines, Viator, Turo, Carnival, and others, to give Prime members early access to price cuts on travel packages, car rentals, and cruises.

In a similar move last summer fellow retail competitor Walmart partnered with Expedia to give Walmart+ members the ability to earn Walmart Cash by booking vacations.

"These travel deals are sort of an extra that they can offer their members," RetailMeNot editor Kristin McGrath told ABC News. "There are plenty of ways you can save and get discounts. These membership programs can just make it a little bit easier."

Costco travel discounts and deals

The warehouse retailer's travel arm offers everyday savings on top-quality, brand-name vacations, hotels, cruises, and rental cars, exclusively for Costco members.

Teresita Nino has used Costco to book vacation packages and told ABC News how she saved on international deals.

"My last trip that we booked was to Saint Lucia and we ended up booking the airfare and the hotel -- I ended up saving about $700," Nino said of her experience using Costco. "Nine out of ten times is Costco Travel is always giving me a better deal overall than other travel companies."

Access to Costco's travel deals require a paid membership as an extra perk for customers.

"The travel savings are the cherry on top -- but it's not necessarily the most lucrative benefit," McGrath said. "In these membership programs, you have to take the value of membership as a whole rather than just joining to save on travel."

Why Cruise the Amazon?

Amazon River cruises take adventurous explorers on one of the world’s most rewarding wildlife expeditions. Journey deep into the heart of the largest rainforest on Earth on a boat trip down the Amazon, a mystical realm of boundless biodiversity where physical and spiritual worlds entwine, a primeval domain still ruled by the jaguar , home to giant snakes , towering trees and uncontacted tribes hiding in plain sight.

The best Amazon cruises explore the remote reaches of this fairytale forest. Witness the playful pink river dolphins in the headwaters of the Amazon in Peru ‘s Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve aboard some of the most luxurious Amazon cruises available, or see the kaleidoscopic colors of the clay licks in the Ecuadorian Oriente . Why not try boating the Amazon River’s lesser-traveled backwaters in Bolivia and explore three kinds of tropical forest, or maybe catch a rare glimpse of the Amazonian manatee in the Anavilhanas National Park of the Brazilian Amazon . What will you discover on your Amazon River tour?

Happy Couple On Skiff In The Amazon

What Is One Thing I Shouldn’t Miss In The Amazon?

Of all the amazing sights in the Amazon, the Meeting of Waters in Brazil shouldn’t be missed. At the confluence between the black waters of the Rio Negro and the sandy whitewater of the Solimões River the two rivers’ waters run side by side without much mixing for over 6 kilometers (3.7 miles).

When Is The Best Time Of Year To Go To The Amazon?

The best time of year to visit the Amazon is during the shoulder season between the wet and dry seasons (varies by country). At this time of year river levels remain high, allowing Amazon river cruises to still navigate deep into the rainforest, and the fine weather draws out much of the wildlife.

If seeing the Amazon rainforest at its lushest and getting up close to lots of birds and mammals (and enjoying slightly cooler temperatures) sounds most attractive, then the wet season with its higher river levels might be your best choice.

If jungle hikes, fishing for piranha and other Amazon River fish species , or spotting exotic migratory birds appeals most to you, while still having the chance to see capuchin monkeys , kinkajou, and other mammals, you might be happier choosing the warmer, dry season when water levels are lower.

Our guests are awed by the Amazon at whatever time of year they visit. If you can’t decide, perhaps the best solution is to choose one season this year and the other in the future!

Is The Amazon A Good Family Destination?

An Amazon vacation is a great option for adventurous families with adaptable kids – after all, where better to inspire and educate them about the natural world! Bear in mind younger children may be affected by the humidity levels, and noisy little ones may reduce the chances of spotting wildlife.

Many of our Amazon guides have children themselves and are skilled in keeping young ones entertained, and are naturally experts in spotting any potential natural dangers you may encounter. It should be noted many Amazon river cruises have minimum age requirements of 7 and above, but jungle lodges and private charters are often more flexible.

Can You Swim In The Amazon River?

Swimming in the main channels of the Amazon river is generally not advised due to strong currents and boat traffic. Swimming in smaller tributaries and lakes is safer (especially the Amazon’s blackwater rivers ), but always follow the safety advice of your guide.

What Activities Can People Do In The Amazon Rainforest?

Most people head to the Amazon to spot wildlife, and this can be done on daytime jungle walks, from canopy walkways and lookout towers, or on nighttime boat safaris. Other common Amazon Rainforest activities include piranha fishing and local community visits.

As previously mentioned, more adventurous travelers may swim in the Amazon (sometimes with pink river dolphins!) or go kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or even tree climbing. In certain parts of the Amazon, float plane flights can also be arranged to get a real bird’s-eye view of the rainforest.

How Much Does An Amazon Cruise Cost?

The cost of an Amazon cruise typically depends on itinerary length, boat comfort level and cabin category, although seasonal and single supplements may also apply. Short cruises of 4 days cost between $900 – $4,400 pp, and longer cruises of 7+ days from $1,800 – $9,600 pp based on double occupancy.

Some other Amazon river cruise cost factors to consider:

  • If you wish to privately charter an Amazon river boat , costs can be significantly more, but can actually work out cheaper per person if your group fills the boat.
  • There are also additional costs involved in accessing the remote parts of the Amazon when cruises depart from, namely the domestic flights to Iquitos (Peru), Coca (Ecuador), Trinidad (Bolivia), Manaus or Santarém (Brazil).
  • Port fees and entrances to the national parks are typically included in your cruise cost.
  • For those considering a luxury Amazon cruise, Rainforest Cruises are proud to offer a best-rate guarantee thanks to our unique relationships with operators.
  • To get your cruise cheaper, keep apprised of the latest Amazon river cruise deals .
