If you are wondering about taking a trip around the Amazon Jungle, you might not have figured out the possible choices for making your Amazon tours a great experience. Even though, nearly two-thirds of the Amazon forest is located in the country of Brazil, some portions are also shared by several other nations like Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and of course as you have heard Peru as well. Even a part of Amazon is called as the Peruvian Amazon. To be more specific 66% of the rain forest is located in Brazil and the remaining in the other nations that are listed earlier.

Even though, only a lesser portion of the rainforest is located in these nations, they are still known to offer numerous options to the tourists to explore the wide range of flora and fauna that is found in the rainforest of the Brazilian Amazon. There is a whole lot of lodging facilities and even cruise ships are taking travelers to different tributaries of the river to make their journey ever memorable in their lifetime. Particularly, Peru is known to have many convenient points of access that are located close to the other top travel tourist spots.

The Peruvian Amazon

Peruvian Amazon Jungle tours are great if you want to combine it with a visit to the ancient city of Machu Picchu.
