The M/V Zafiro - meaning 'sapphire' in English - is a state-of-the-art Amazon River vessel, constructed in 2015. 

With the same owners as the M/V Amatista, passengers can expect the same highly-trained expert guides, hospitality and attention to detail on board, with the only difference being her stylish design and modern facilities.

Her 19 spacious suites feature all mod-cons, with air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, and magnificent views out of floor-to-ceiling windows; and for those on the Upper Deck, their private balconies too.

The boat itself has some remarkable standout features, almost too many to name, but include a fully-accessible suite for those with mobility issues, both exercise and massage rooms, and an outdoor Jacuzzi on the Observation Deck, itself equipped with sun loungers and a bar.

Four of the Lower Deck Suites also interconnect, and the remarkable Zafiro Suite has a 180º panoramic view, a large front-facing balcony and a sofa bed suitable for children younger than 12, making the cruise ideal for families.

The Zafiro operates fixed four, five and eight-day departures to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve - an area unrivaled for wildlife - allowing you to explore deep into the heart of the rainforest.

NB. The 8-day departures are a combination of the 5-day and 4-day itineraries, in that order.
