Our client Kris sent us this photo and wrote about it: “Our favorite part of our trip was our visit to the Amazon Rain Forest where we stayed an the Amazonas Ecopark Jungle Lodge. The facility was excellent, and the staff wonderful. Our tour guid Euyris was amazing, so personable fun, funny, warm and intelligent. I thought the 4 days in the Amazon might be a bit much since I am not so outdoorsy, but it ended up being the best part of the 10 day trip. We end to the Meeting of the Waters which was incredible, and took a walk in the rain forest and saw monkeys and Indian Villages and took boat tours, it was all so beautiful.”
