Take a 4, 5 or 8 day cruise where you’ll be able to unwind and relax as you listen to nature awaken in the jungle beside you. Enjoy modern ammenities like a sun deck, bar and hot tubs while you journey through highlights like the Yasuni National Park, Cuyabeno National Park and of course the Amazon Jungle.

Observation Towers

For a view like no other visit Cristalino Lodge where you’ll find two observation towers at a staggering 50 metres in height! Take in the different layers of the forest from the ground all the way into the canopy and see if you can spot a white-whiskered spider monkey or a macaw.

For a honeymoon full of purpose and meaning why not try volunteering. There are plenty of positions you could try including Forest Ranger, Herpetofauna Conservation Research, Primate Conservation, Mammal Research, Drone Mapping and more! What better team mate to have by your side as you save the world than your newlywed.
