La Perla is a boat conceived with the comfort in mind of a traveler who wants to enter the heart of the Amazon jungle, arriving at virgin spots that possess their own magic. Its small draft allows to visit places that are difficult to access and where not all the boats can navigate.
Auxiliary boats with outboard motor are the ideal complement to reach the most remote areas of the Amazon, allowing you to navigate to lagoons, narrow canals, streams, and flooded forests.
Upon arrival at the airport, we will be waiting for you to take you to DoubleTree by Hilton Iquitos hotel, where you will receive the first orientation talk on the adventure you are about to begin. Then, we will head in a private vehicle to the city of Nauta, the historical fluvial port where we will be boarding.
At dawn, we will take a boat to go back, silently, to the Communal Reserve of Yanayacu de Yacapana and observe the beautiful Amazon birds that fill the bushy treetops: parrots, macaws, among many others. We will also see sloths (lazy bears), iguanas, monkeys and, of course, the pink and red dolphins which have made this place so popular. A true natural scenery of color and life in the heart of the rainforest.

This time, our destination will be Marayali river stream, a privileged area for birdwatching numerous endangered species. Back aboard, buffet breakfast will be served and will be followed by an exploration outing in the Pahuachiro area, another gem to appreciate Amazon biodiversity.
