What do you get when you take a boat, fill it with a couple dozen American tourists, strap their ankles with snake gaiters then set it on the Amazon river at Iquitos, Peru, and give it a nudge upstream towards the Pacaya Samiria Reserve? Well, you get a week full of experiences, images and memories that could never be adequately set to words. If your idea of vacationing is sitting on a beach while sipping Margaritas, then the Amazon River is not for you.
