Experience Achuar tribal life, visiting this remote Amazon community.
Get away from civilisation and head deep into Ecuador's rainforest.
Night walks, caiman spotting and macaw licks among the activities.
Kayak along rivers, hike remote trails and discover the heart of the Amazon.
The whole holiday was fantastic but the two main highlights were swimming with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands and getting to Machu Pichu after the four day trek.
All the accommodation, food and guides were fantastic. I would definitely recommend the places I stayed in – staff were very helpful and the locations were great. The food everywhere was exceptional – much better than I was expecting.
