Time Out…

…oh my goodness…time to pour a pisco sour…this is going to be an amazing adventure.  We arrive in Iquitos, Peru…gateway to the Amazon.  Aqua Expeditions will be guiding us on our exploration of the Amazon, onboard a luxurious riverboat, the Aria.

Designed by Peruvian architect Jordi Puig, the MV Aria, constitutes one of the two uber-luxury boats that sail down the Amazon. With 16 suites, it is like floating 5-star luxurious hotel with panoramic views……onboard, it’s all about attention to detail and the provision of high-end services including a doctor and emergency medical care and security…

…onboard the Aria are biologists who have grown up around the Amazon and they are very enthusiastic in sharing all their knowledge with the guests onboard…

…the Aria features a lounge area with a library and comfy sofas, a small exercise/massage room, dining room and a beautiful sun-deck with a Jacuzzi ideal for chilling or stargazing on a clear night…

…culinary feasts even for the most demanding foodies, are perfectly complemented with a selection of fine wines and cocktails. Peru’s star chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino – of Malabar fame – creates the daily menu…

…tomorrow, the adventure begins anew…
