ConsVery hot, sticky & sweaty. BUGS unlimited!

Having spent most of my time in Peru either driving through desert or climbing the Andes, it is hard to believe that over the brow of those great mountains lays the Amazon basin. It is a fantastic sight from the plane. As far as the eye can see, in all directions and disappearing off to the...

Progorgeous scenery, friendly people

Conspick-pocketing, toilets are gross
