The Amazon River: A Natural Wonder of the World

Amazon River
In one of the most exotic and enchanting regions of the Earth, flows the magnificent Amazon River. Considered the longest and largest river in the world, it is born in the snowy peaks of the province of Caylloma, in the department of Arequipa. Its hydrographic basin is the largest in the planet and brings life to the Amazon, the most extensive tropical forest on the world and one of the main lungs of the Earth.

Its waters pour 170 thousand cubic meters per second into the sea and houses more than 2000 species of fish. In addition, the Amazon River is the means of communication for the millions of people living in the jungle who sail on its waters. It is home to an impressive amount of flora and fauna, with species not found anywhere in the world, such as the manatee, the pink dolphin and the impressive anaconda.

Declared one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the Amazon River and its marvelous rainforest are ideal for lovers of nature and biodiversity, birdwatchers, those interested in mysticism and popular traditions, and for those who are passionate about navigating the rivers.Amazon River
