In Peru, the ultra-luxe operator Aqua Expeditions (www.aquaexpeditions.com; seven-night package with four nights on board, three nights in Lima and all flights, £3,950 per person) has just launched its second Amazon river cruiser. The MV Aria – 147ft-long and built by Peruvian architect Jordi Puig, using local woods and sumptuous cottons and linens in shades of cream and coffee – makes deep incursions into the river’s tributaries so you experience jungle flora and fauna up close, always in the company of expert guides and naturalists.
