In Good Company: Exploring the Upper Amazon with Carlos Romero

  • Jan 2024

"The Amazon is one of my favorite destinations on Earth," says Expedition Leader Carlos Romero, who has been working with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic for over three decades. “The endless river, the endless greenery, and the endless opportunities to learn and look for wildlife make this place very special.” As guests explore aboard the 14-suite Delfin II, they’ll encounter the rainforest’s rare creatures and welcoming riverside communities in the most authentic way possible. In this episode of In Good Company, Romero shares why he thinks every traveler should experience this biodiverse region at least once in their lifetime.

Sail in tropical style and comfort with a small band of explorers

Delfin II, our base for daily explorations to which we happily return, has a distinct advantage over any land-based camp—she moves, giving you an ever-varied experience of the Amazon’s multiple landscapes and wonders. Her iron exterior is clad in tropical hardwoods, and her interior gleams with wood floors and lacquered palm ceilings. Wood stairs float between decks, and lazily turning ceiling fans add the right tropical notes, while the air-conditioning invisibly cools and dehumidifies. Relais & Châteaux inducted Delfin II into its prestigious hotel group, recognizing her commitment to sustainability, service, local nature, and culture.
