The most affordable quality Amazon river vessel currently operating in Peru, the Amatista offers a great introduction to the rainforest. This purpose-built riverboat has capacity for 30 passengers in 15 cabins located across two decks. All are simply furnished but feature air conditioning and private bathrooms. Communal areas on the vessel are also good with both covered and open observation decks, a reading lounge and bar. The included activities offered by the Amatista are varied, offering an insight into both the wildlife of the Amazon but also the people who live here, and two naturalist guides are on-board throughout the cruise to accompany you on excursions.
