The Peruvian Amazon with an expert
Serena Winn-Darley chats to the Peruvian Amazon Cruise ship Delfin III guide, Ericson Pinedo, about his love for this sensational region and the abundant diversity on offer.
What drew you to this profession and what do you love about it?
My father is a guide in the Brazilian Amazon, so I have spent my whole life out in the jungle with him, climbing trees in the forest to pick fruit, fishing in small streams and chasing iguanas along the shore. Most of us were born and raised in the rainforest and now we call it our office! We have all completed rigorous training and participated in projects with Peruvian and North American professors, researchers and scientists.
