After Lima, we flew to Iquitos to start a 5 night tour of the Amazon. We stayed on a boat that carried about 20 passengers, and every day we would tour the jungle in a skiff.
Above is a sloth in a tree. They were so hard to spot, but our guide could see them from hundreds of yards away.

These lilypads were huge, and had a really sharp, thorny structure on the underside.
This is a flock of blue and yellow macaws, which are native to the Amazon.
