Question: Why should I book with Aqua Expeditions?
Answer: Aqua Expeditions pioneered the concept of ultra-luxurious small ship cruises on the Peruvian stretch of the Amazon River. Our first ship, the Aqua Amazon immediately began to sell out, as word spread about the possibility to enjoy supremely luxurious accommodations and fine dining while exploring some of the most remote, wildlife rich areas of the Amazon River. Beyond building this stylish and safe cruising vessel, founder Francesco Galli Zugaro identified local guides who knew every animal, bird and tree of the Amazon jungle—most had grown up there. These Aqua Expeditions guides provide life changing travel and educational experiences for our guests. His success was so great that almost immediately he began construction on a second boat, the Aria Amazon, which also sails the Amazon.

“Nature takes care of the lighting on our generous outdoor deck on the Aqua Amazon, with plenty of invigorating sunshine for those who wish to soak it up on cushioned loungers during the day, to after dusk when stars fill the Peruvian sky. Guests seeking fresh Amazonia air without sun exposure will find plenty of space and comfortable seating under our expansive awning.”

The Dunmore is a breathtaking 5-star resort located in Harbour Island in the Bahamas. Known for their crystal blue waters and pink sand beaches, this location would be the ultimate honeymoon spot of any couple looking for a tropical getaway. You can choose from different villas, or even your own private residence. “Beyond the beauty of the beaches is the charm of the island itself. This precious place is a historic destination, dating to 1791 when Lord Dunmore, who had a summer residence here, planned the streets of the town. Today, well-preserved cottages are nestled along the streets where golf carts are now the transportation of choice.”

There is a fabulous new hotel on one of my favorite islands in the Caribbean, Anguilla! Malliouhana was just renovated in 2014, 30 years after it’s original opening. Their legacy now continues, more luxurious than ever before! The hotel is set on a hillside and boasts 3 beautiful beaches. Their decor is really chic, and has a kind of retro Palm Springs vibe. Anguilla is known for their insane beaches, and the Malliouhana is no exception! You can take a boat over to Sandy Island or Scilly Cay for a day for fresh fish and rum punch on a tiny private island. So cool!
