So you’ve recently said “Yes!” and have your wedding planning on the way. Now it’s time for you to start putting together your dream Honeymoon. Are you out of honeymoon ideas? Skip the tourist beaten paths and plan a honeymoon unlike any other as newlyweds. Not many experiences can match the adventure and romance of an Amazon rainforest vacation.
The Amazon rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest and is made up of many unique ecosystems and various vegetation types. It goes without saying that from the breathtaking Amazon sunrise to the romantic starry night sky, the Amazon rainforest is full of unique and astounding picture-perfect honeymoon moments.
The Amazon has been named as one of the world’s new seven wonders of nature, but for time immemorial has been described as the cradle of evolution, an ancient, almost mythical ecosystem whose richness and wonder continues to lure adventurous travelers from all walks of life, especially those celebrating special milestones. To help you put together your perfect honeymoon in the Amazon together, we’ve come up with a few top tips and ideas for romance in the rainforest.
Rub shoulders with the treetop wildlife and gain unique and thrilling views of Peru’s Amazon with a stay in luxury honeymoon bungalows built into the rainforest canopy at Treehouse Lodge. Scientists estimate that up to 90% of life in the rainforest is found in the treetops, making this the richest habitat for plant and animal life, so expect to wake up as newlyweds to a call of nature, quite literally!
The lodge has 12 en-suite bungalows with comforts you just wouldn’t expect to find high in the trees in the middle of the jungle, during a rainforest honeymoon. With showers, sinks, toilets, fresh white linens, chairs, and comfortable beds with mosquito-netting as standard. The bungalows range from 36 ft to a staggering 67 ft in the air, all joined by secure walkways and platforms for excellent wildlife spotting opportunities with your spouse. During your unique honeymoon, you and your spouse may be fortunate enough to see up to 5 different species of monkeys, pink and grey dolphins, sloths, toucans, macaws, parrots, parakeets, and with some luck, even a jaguar. We recommend staying in “Solitude”, the treehouse deepest in the jungle, or “The Cradle” which is the most secluded for that extra bit of privacy.
Your treetop honeymoon stay will include daily activities that can be tailored to your tastes. Choose from a wide range of adventurous honeymoon activities, each lasting 2-3 hours, that include daytime and nocturnal jungle walks, piranha fishing, dolphin-watching, and visits to the local communities. A honeymoon at the Treehouse Lodge is sure to make your heart race.
Sit back, relax and drink your glass of wine while watching the Amazon rainforest pass by. An all-inclusive honeymoon cruise on the Amazon river can be both the most relaxing and adventurous vacation you’ve ever taken. Rainforest Cruises has honeymoon cruise itineraries aboard vessels in Peru, cruising through the breathtaking wilderness of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.
You can expect spacious and luxurious honeymoon suites (Jacuzzi and massage rooms included on selected cruises), delicious gourmet meals, adventurous jungle excursions, and sunsets on your romantic Amazon River cruise.
Even better, why not consider a honeymoon cruise package to both the Amazon jungle and Machu Picchu guaranteed to give you breathtaking scenery, wild adventures, romantic starry night skies and a wealth of rich culture encounters. That’s a great formula for the most luxurious and exotic honeymoon imaginable.
One thing is for sure, on your adventurous jungle honeymoon, you won’t be getting bored. From dawn until dusk, you have the option of participating in various Amazon jungle excursions and activities. All of them are optional, so if you prefer to relax in your honeymoon suite, you can enjoy the view, but if you’re up for a newlywed adventure, we recommend joining in on as many rainforest activities as you can!
Early in the morning is the prime time to go bird watching. You’ll get on a skiff and cruise deep inside the Amazon jungle to look for wildlife. After lunch, walk through the jungle canopies looking for packs of monkeys migrating by. Other activities on your Amazon honeymoon itinerary include stand-up paddleboarding, pink dolphin watching, piranha fishing, kayaking, jungle trekking, amazon community visits, and more! What better way to start your lives together than with a jungle adventure?
The best part of an Amazon honeymoon for many might well be the Amazonian food. If you and your newlywed are foodies and are looking for a great culinary experience during your honeymoon, you’ve found the right place. The Amazon is full of delicious (and nutritious) ingredients that top chefs of the world are always after.
Our recommendation for foodie honeymooners is to take a luxury Amazon river cruise as the menus onboard are a real source of pride and care, designed by world-class chefs to make the best use of the national recipes and locally sourced ingredients. Meal times are a truly special experience, as guests wait expectantly for the next dish, with the real possibility of new flavors. Prepare yourselves for romantic candlelit meals, in-room dining in your honeymoon suite or private terrace, and the odd complimentary bottle of champagne.
“Luna de Miel” is Spanish for Honeymoon. While you are on your honeymoon in the Amazon, you’ll get to learn a new culture, and hopefully pick up some words from the local language. Get to know the local customs of the indigenous communities you encounter, and maybe you’ll be inspired to bring some of the cultures back home with you. You never know, you may even get a blessing from a Shaman!
The Amazon culture is quite extraordinary, particularly speaking about traditional Amazon tribes. Indigenous tribes of the Amazon have inhabited the rainforest for thousands of years and a large percentage of these people continue to live in complete isolation from the outside world. They are entirely self-sufficient: they hunt and produce their own food, create their own shelter, and provide their own security. Their customs and culture are therefore entirely unique. On your honeymoon in the Amazon, you’ll get the opportunity to interact with some Amazon communities, these may include tribes, local schools, and artisans.
We dare you to spend at least one night together at the aforementioned Treehouse Lodge. Walking across canopy bridges to get to your honeymoon cabin in the pitch black of the Amazonian night will be quite the adrenaline experience. An Amazon honeymoon can help you get over all of your newlywed fears! You’ll learn how to conquer the fear of heights, the dark, and the fear of all the jungle’s creepy crawlies.
During your jungle excursions, some of the Amazon’s most feared wildlife might come out to make an appearance. Who do you think would handle a large boa constrictor or tarantula better? You or your spouse?
A Amazon rainforest honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. To explore this mystical, magical, and romantic realm with your true love has surely got to be one of the most unusual and unforgettable honeymoon options to consider. Turn your romantic rainforest escape into reality with a custom-made Amazon honeymoon package from Rainforest Cruises. Cheers to the newlyweds!
