Where to Cruise the Amazon – Ecuador, Peru or Brazil?

A Brazil Amazon cruise is the choice for travelers wanting to cruise solely along the Amazon River, and see less civilization. Ecuador Amazon cruises are often paired with a Galapagos cruise and explore the country’s largest national park, Yasuni National Park, along Amazon River tributaries. For Machu Picchu and other Peru travel plans, Peruvian Amazon river cruises are an excellent extension with high- and low-water explorations along the easternmost point of the Amazon River and its tributaries.

Low-water season is June through October with 30-100 inches of rain, and may allow for more trail walks. Though it can rain slightly more in the high water season, it usually rains some every day in the low water season too.
