La Estrella Amazonica Tours
For excursions, board two 18-passenger excursion boats accompanied by knowledgeable local naturalists.
Your tour covers more than 600 miles on the Amazon and its tributaries. You travel deep into the protected Pacaya-Samiria Reserve and explore three different habitats so you have the best chance of spotting rare wildlife! On our Amazon River cruise, we look for monkeys, birds, sloths and other mammals, pink and gray dolphins and so much more.
Aboard our Amazon River cruise you’ll create a lifetime of memories: the joy in the eyes of a village child when you visit their school; the enveloping darkness of the jungle; or the awe of floating along narrow streams accompanied by pink dolphins. Drawing on insight from our native Amazon travel guides, we intentionally vary the villages and tributaries we visit, ensuring you get the most authentic rainforest experience possible. Each day, our knowledgeable Amazon River travel guides use their decades of learning and guiding experience to serve as lecturers, field guides and friends as you explore the rainforest.
Wildlife at on La Estrella Amazonica Cruise
Wildlife you can see on expeditions include animals and plants of the diverse Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. These include an incredible assortment of monkeys, incredible bird life, 2 species of Amazon dolphins, different mammals, and many different Amazon Rainforest plants.
