Taking a trip into the Amazon was always on the cards when we embarked on this epic adventure more than nine months ago in São Luís, Brazil. Finally it was our chance to see pristine jungle, spot wildlife, fish for piranha and learn about exotic flora.
I couldn’t wait to be a part of it.
We decided to access the Amazon from Iquitos, Peru, as it was recommended by some travellers we met on our Bolivian salt flats tour. We were sold. All we needed to do was get chatting to a few of the operators in Iquitos and get a sense of costs and what kind of accommodation and excursions they offer.
