Indulge in exceptional menus featuring roasted meats, grilled fish, savory vegetables, sun-ripened tropical fruits, decadent desserts, and free-flowing wine during dinner.

        Cruising the Amazon in Delfin III has been a must-once-in-a-lifetime experience, and breathtaking too!! Not only is the boat beautiful and comfortable, but the food is outstanding and the guides know the environment very well. The cabins are very comfortable, almost like being at home. The experience of walking in the middle of the jungle and coming across animals in their habitat (a boa, sloths, eagles, etc) is very interesting and really make you feel privileged.

        Role of a Beatrice bradley hostess

        Beatrice Bradley is an Experience Company not a Tour Company.  The role of a Beatrice Bradley Host is to be warm and welcoming. To relate and connect. To have attention to details. And to manage the behind-the-scenes magic so your experience is one-of-a-kind. They are not local experts nor are they tour guides. We hire local experts, guides, and historians as each location warrants. They are expert hosts and manage the camaraderie and logistics of the experience. Our goal is that your hostess will make you feel welcomed, comfortable, and that you will walk away with new & lasting friendships made during an unforgettable experience.
