The Reina De Enín, which was built in 2000, provides casual, relaxed exploration of the Bolivian Amazon. With 12 cabins hosting up to 24 passengers, the 85-foot boat transports you to the farthest reaches of the Amazon.
As you step aboard the Reina De Enín, you will immediately feel the cares of your day-to-day life slip away. Suddenly you are in a laid-back place that invites you to let your hair down and reconnect with nature. The catamaran’s twin steel hulls give a sturdy feel to the riverboat, and there is ample space for your family, friends, or corporate group.
Though the air-conditioned cabins feature large windows, the best views are from the multiple terraces and the sun deck on the upper deck. From there, watch the dolphins that escort you on your trip down the river. When you are ready to cool off with a dip in the river, head to the back of the boat. A steel net creates a swimming pool in the river, perfect for taking a swim in a more protected way.
The flexible, laid-back vibe of the flotel Reina De Enín extends to the itineraries provided. Your cruise, for as few as two people, can start on any day throughout the year, which allows you to tailor a holiday to your schedule. A popular choice is a four-day cruise, which balances active excursions both on the river and through the rainforest with unscheduled time to relax.
Four small support boats take you ashore and allow you to explore tributaries. You will also take wildlife-spotting river safaris in search of caimans, pink river dolphins, and turtles. During hikes through the rainforest, you may see sloths, anteaters, capybaras, monkeys, and the rare Blue-throated Macaws.
For guaranteed bird sightings, you will take an early-morning visit to the Chuchini bird sanctuary to hear hundreds of parrots and macaws wake for the day. You will also visit indigenous villages to meet the Mojeña and Yurakare people to learn about local ways of life. Throughout your Reina De Enin Amazon River cruise, you will be accompanied by a crew of local guides. After a lifetime of living in the area, your guides will provide first-hand accounts of what it is like to live in this remote region.

Ten of the twelve cabins on board come with a private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning and basic amenities to keep guests refreshed. The other two cabins still have private bathrooms but only a fan to keep guests cool, and have no hot water.
