The Amazon Rainforest is known as the Earth's lungs and along with Congo and New Guinea is one of the last tropical wilderness of human hand. Amazon rainforest is the largest wildlife container on our planet and is home to many exotic species you may have seen in film or television.
Tourism in the Amazon region grew slowly but still in its infancy. After turbulence, tourism is recognized as a means of protecting rainforests (if properly managed) and offers an alternative source of income to local communities for devastating activities such as logging. In fact, some writers have marked these places as "the destruction of the goose that puts the golden egg", because once the forest is destroyed, it will take 100 years or more to restore the level of diversity (depending on the near untouched forest). It's an incredible variety that draws tourists of the Amazon Rainforest.
There are many excursions in the Amazon Rainforest, from which you can choose. However, only a fraction offers the level of service and comfort we expected from tourism combined with exceptional opportunities for nature and life awareness.
Some tours to watch the Amazon Rainforest, which receive constant and stable positive feedback, are the following. I'll start with Iquitos in northern Peru, the western Amazon rainforest.
Near Iquitos, Tahuayo Lodge is the most recommended cottage in Tamshiyacu Tahuayo, 150 km from the Amazon River from the city itself. Tahuayo Lodge offers private guides, zipline with canopy and the most extensive list of itinerary options in the Amazon. One reason for the creation of the Tamshiyacu Tahuayo Reserve was to protect an unusual monkey called Uakari.
For cruises around Iquitos, Delfin I and Delfin II are selected. Delfin I is a luxurious cruise where you can relax in your spa and watch the rainforest gently pass through your bedroom. Both Delfin I and Delfin II offer a convenient way to explore tropical flood plains in the famous Pacaya Samiria National Park.
If you head out to the Amazonian Amazon Rainforest, you can see that you are in the city of Manaus, Brazil, where you can embark on a cruise on board a 7-day cruise on the Amazon Tucano or a 5-day cruise to the Tucano Jungle Cruise. You will leave the vessel in the key locations of the forest to explore Amazonian plants and animals with a professional guide.
