Over the years, we at Exito have come in contact with literally hundreds of tour operators. We’ve decided to start a blog series called “Meet the Tour Specialist” where you can meet some of these incredible tour operators and companies we’ve encountered.
This week, for our first spotlight, we would like to feature one of our more specialized travel partners, Rainforest Cruises. From their offices in Florida and Peru, Rainforest Cruises offers a unique collection of expedition Amazon River Cruise vessels in South America. In case you haven’t heard, the Amazon Rainforest is a pretty big deal. It is the world’s largest tropical forest, and home to the widest array of plant and animal life on the planet. It is so large that it is shared by nine different countries, and contains the world’s largest river system – the Amazon.
The Amazon really is a wonderful destination that can be visited a number of ways, as there are riverboats in Peru, Brazil, Ecuador and even Bolivia! In addition to the cruises themselves, Rainforest Cruises specializes in customizing land tours to many of the more popular destinations in South America, such as Machu Picchu, the Galapagos, Rio de Janeiro, and Iguazu Falls.
And there’s more!As excitement for the World Cup 2014 is on the rise, many travelers will be scrambling to secure tickets and hotels in some of the more popular venues in Brazil. Luckily, Manaus has been chosen to host four matches in the group stages. With a new stadium, and the exotic energy of the Amazon as a backdrop, what better opportunity is there to tick two items from your bucket list? Rainforest Cruises has arranged several exciting World Cup Manaus departures for eager travelers looking to take in both the electric atmosphere of a World Cup in Brazil, coupled with an adventure cruise on the Amazon.
