Whilst most visitors are first attracted to the Amazon by the chance to experience life in the world's biggest rainforest, meet remote local communities and spot exotic creatures in the wild, the astonishing sunsets are a hugely welcome addition to the trip. Probably the best way to enjoy them is on a boat drifting down the Tambopata River, with the sun casting intoxicating hues of warms reds and oranges onto the water's surface as it descends. They are not only a wonderful way to finish a memorable day exploring the jungle, but often serve as a prelude to an equally exciting nocturnal walk.
