Honeymoons can be an exciting and sometimes wild time. So wild, that couples are opting to vacation with members of the animal kingdom. In the current issue of New Orleans Bride, travel editor Becca Hensley spotlights some locales that bring out the animal in all of us. “For honeymooners who need creatures to make life complete,” says Hensley. “We’ve gathered a menagerie of honeymoons that embrace furry friends as their focus.”
Today’s blog focuses on the depths of the Amazon.
Board Aqua Expedition’s Aria, an intimate, five-star cruise ship which whisks discriminating adventure seekers down through the lesser traveled portals of the Amazon and its verges and tributaries. Partake of their night excursion on the back waters of the Nauta Caño, as well as along the El Dorado River, to ogle exotic, nocturnal wildlife. Beneath the brightest canopy of stars, unhampered by artificial light, catch sight of caimans, capybaras and bats. Lucky honeymooners will see a jaguar, considered auspicious to Meso-American cultures. When not animal watching, enjoy the ship’s stellar Peruvian cuisine, fishing for piranha, kayaking (in non piranha-filled waters), and biking. aquaexpeditions.com/luxury-cruise-ships/aria-amazon/excursions-off-the-vessel-aria
