Explore the Amazon on the Selva Viva, a boat that will lead you down the mythic Amazon River. You’ll meet pink dolphins, anacondas, piranhas, and more. During this tour, we will sail you through the National reserve of Pacaya Samiria, where you will see the most biodiverse rainforest in the world. This experience will bring you directly to local communities who have often been marginalized in their own country. During many day trips off the boat, you’ll be able to share solidarity for local communities, be treated by their warm welcome, and share and learn from them. Latitud Sur aims to offer many tours that will offer you unique and authentic experiences with communities from the Amazon. Tours are flexible and adaptable to your needs. Regardless, we want you to be a part of encouraging a respectful way of tourism. Come and meet the Amazon, come and visit us!
