Notes: Excursion schedules may vary depending on weather conditions and wildlife cycles. The listed daily itineraries are scheduled guidelines and it is important to allow room for the unpredictable and unexpected surprises that make each trip unique. We find it is more satisfying to let the jungle, the weather, and our naturalist guides lead the way. We trust the expert guides to modify the itinerary for the particular interests and safety of the group.

Itinerary: The itineraries are subject to change due to weather conditions at certain times of the year. The water levels of the rivers also vary from time to time, as well as the hours of sailing. Excursions may be modified at the discretion of the Zafiro crew.

Weather: The weather in Iquitos is warm and humid and the temperature varies between 33 °C (90 °F) and 21 °C (70 °F).
The rainy (high water) season is from November to May.
The dry (low water) season is from June to October.
Each season boasts dramatic difference in plants, animals, and weather.

Clothing: light and fresh pieces, blouses, long-sleeved shirts, swimwear, shoes with soft rubber sole for the boat (rubber boots and rain ponchos are provided by us), cardigan or long-sleeved shirts, wind resistant jackets. The days are hot and humid while the night breeze is fresh.

Insects & Mosquitoes: We recommend taking Vitamin B or B-15 a few days before arrival to the jungle. These vitamins are the best natural repellent against insect bites. As well, do not forget to bring conventional repellent and cream for bites.

Other items: We suggest bringing sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, binoculars (very important for enjoying the fauna and flora. Preferably 1 per person), camera, and extra batteries.

Connectivity: There is no Wi-Fi Internet or phone signal coverage on our vessels during most the sailing.

Tips: Tips for both the crew and the guides are not included and are expected, as is customary on cruises around the world. The amounts are distributed equally between your entire vessel's crew, and we hope their service is valuable and insightful to your experience aboard the La Perla. US$ 10 per passenger, per day, is suggested, and envelopes will be provided in your room for your highest discretion.

Amazon Conservation Program

Tourism plays a vital role in the pursuit of sustainability. In our commitment to sustainable management and responsible tourism, we are constantly working hard with local communities. Once a week we visit communities with nonperishable food, ammunition, clothes and shoes. As part of our work, our naturalist guides give a speech on environmental conservation to children. This activity is carried out to raise awareness and sensitize the community about the importance of protecting and preserving our environment and natural resources. As part of our work, we work with women artisans in San Francisco: a community located along the Ucayali River. The art work of these talented women is displayed on the ship as part of the decor. As part of our welfare program, we offer their crafts in our boutique on board which encourage tourists to purchase these works of art and contribute to this community. All proceeds will help us support the purchase of school supplies throughout the year.

Another important contribution is the supporting of the Association of Amazonian Biodiversity Conservation ( ACOBIA ) , where we work to support the preservation of natural resources and the environment. We contribute a donation for its activities and at the same time encourage the community to have direct contact with nature and to value the natural resources and rich biodiversity that Mother Nature gives us.
