To all the couples searching for a dream honeymoon destination, we’re here to encourage you to skip the traditionally overcrowded resorts. Instead, choose a secluded, romantic getaway to the lush Amazon Rainforest for your honeymoon. After all, a honeymoon in the Amazon jungle is the perfect vacation spot for a romantic adventure.
Read below for the 3 reasons why an Amazon Rainforest honeymoon will be a trip you and your loved one will never forget!
#1. Secluded Atmosphere
Whether you choose to experience the Amazon Rainforest on an explorer cruise or in an authentic lodge, a honeymoon in the Amazon Rainforest is the perfect getaway for two due to its secluded atmosphere.
Secluded Amazon River Cruises
An Amazon River cruise offers newlyweds the opportunity to slip away from civilization and delve deep into the magnificent forest. For an intimate experience, you can choose to wine and dine on the Tucano Amazon River Cruise. This ship has a maximum capacity of just 18 passengers, which makes it the perfect size for a private experience through the mighty jungle’s spectacular environment. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy an exquisite meal on the upper deck of the Tucano while the sun goes down and the Amazon river rushes alongside you.
Newlyweds may also enjoy the Amazon Delfin III Cruise. This particular cruise travels through Iquitos, the gateway to the lodges and villages of the northern Amazon. Why not embark on an ultimate adventure with your partner to signify the start of your new life together?
Secluded Amazon Lodges
If cruises aren’t for you, Amazon lodges are also ideal for a remote getaway. One of our favorite options is the Reserva Amazonica Lodge, where you can relax in one of their private cabanas nestled in the eastern Peruvian Amazon. This luxurious lodging features a private terrace and open windows with views of the forest. Wake up to the sunrise and the sounds of the Amazon as you open your balcony doors to the lush environment surrounding you.
#2. Unique Experiences
What better way to start your life together than with a unique experience? Discover a new culture and setting together as you travel through the Amazon.
Experience-based Amazon Cruises
River cruises allow you to discover untouched nature at its finest. Experience the Amazon River in exclusivity, with fewer people and no sign of other boats; thus increasing the likelihood to spot rare wildlife. It will be a unique adventure, as you and your partner will have the feeling of being alone amongst the scenery of the Amazon. On a trip like this, you can canoe through a flooded forest, embark on a night safari, and fish for piranha with the locals. A few other notable highlights include spotting pink river dolphins, beautiful water lilies, and uakari monkeys.
Experience-based Amazon Lodges
The Napo Wildlife Center, in Ecuador’s Amazon basin, offers an authentic wildlife and nature experience, perfect for couples on a romantic honeymoon. Paddle down tranquil lakes, hike through terra firma forests and learn about the ecosystem of the Ecuadorian Amazon. There is also a parrot clay lick near the lodge, where you will have an unparalleled opportunity of seeing many brightly-colored parrots within just a few meters!
#3. Flexible Itineraries
Rather than grouping travelers into pre-packaged days of activities, Amazon cruises and lodges are experienced based. This allows guests to focus on the adventures they want to undergo together, as opposed to partaking in some activities they aren’t that all that interested in.
Flexible Cruise Itineraries
A motor yacht allows you and your newlywed to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle from either the upper decks or the peace of your private cabin. Optional excursions include canoeing, hiking, swimming, and fishing. Downtime activities, on the other hand, include relaxing on the viewing decks, enjoying delicious food, and dancing the night away. These cruises allow you to adventure into the unknown, as well as unwind and enjoy spending time with your loved one. The flexibility of these cruises allows you and your partner to relax while dreaming up your perfect itinerary.
Flexible Lodge Itineraries
The Tambopata Research Center Amazon Lodge is another fantastic example of flexible Amazon itineraries. Take a night safari to discover the mystery the Amazonian nocturnal wildlife has to offer, or hike through the canopy treetops along the Tambopata River. After a long day of exploring, you can choose to unwind in your private room or enjoy a eucalyptus-infused couple’s massage for ultimate relaxation.
All of these wonderful experiences and so much more can be encountered in the Amazon. Take the stress out of planning a honeymoon and let the experts take care of everything for you!
