Our 2024 Amazon Cruise has proven that, year after year, the mix of birds and wildlife in this, the greatest Biome on Earth, represents not only an opportunity to enjoy spectacular bird species but also views of impressive cloud formations and a massive amount of water flowing from the Andes. Also, it exposes us to the most extensive patch of evergreen forest anywhere in this world, one that is connected by an intricate and complex set of microhabitats.

Prior to the cruise, we spent a day in the Lima area. We explored beaches, wetlands and marshes to look for birds that reaches this coast due to the presence of the Humboldt Current, one that brings the wealth of the ocean to the surface. To make sure that you remember this spectacular journey in the years to come, here follows an account from each location.
