Fly from Lima to Iquitos (there are direct daily flights) where you will be transferred to Nauta, the private port from where Delfin I departs. On certain days of the week, Iquitos can also be reached directly from Cusco.
You will spend your time onboard Delfin I exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, which is the size of New Jersey.
The weather in the Peruvian Amazon is hot and humid.
The “High Water” season, between December and May, sees slightly cooler temperatures, but more rain. Fewer trails are able to be walked during these months, but higher river levels mean that more areas can be accessed by boat.
The “Low Water” season, between June and November, is when more hiking can take place, and you are more likely to see migratory birds flying over the jungle.
