These cruises offer a luxurious and comfortable way to experience the natural wonders of the Amazon while minimizing your impact on the environment.

Accommodations:
Cruise vessels in the Ecuadorian Amazon are designed for comfort and often include air-conditioned cabins, private bathrooms, and panoramic views of the jungle. While they offer modern amenities, they are also designed to blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings.
