Amazon River Cruise on Film

Last week I shared photos from the week I spent in the Peruvian highlands and today I'm sharing photos from the week we spent on a river cruise down the Amazon aboard the Aria.  I traveled to the Ecuadorian Amazon back in 2012, staying in a jungle lodge along the Napo, and this was a fun and different perspective on the Amazon.  If your focus is for intensive wildlife viewing I would definitely recommend the jungle lodge over the boat, but for a relaxing vacation it was lovely to watch the water go by from bed in the rooms with their floor to ceiling windows and dine on delicious 5 star cuisine every day.  We saw sloths, monkeys, tarantulas, anacondas, pink dolphins, countless birds (although my brother-in-law did count them) and I even caught a few piranhas fishing- it felt straight out of Amazon Trail!
