The Amazon rainforest is a spectacular environment with rich biodiversity - both flora and fauna. It is home to a variety of indigenous cultures who for milennia have learned to live in harmony with their surroundings and use the plants of the rainforest to maintain their health.

I had a great week at Suchipacari where I had the chance to learn about the Amazon and its breath-taking diversity. The staff were great, great guides and good food, and a great way to explore the Amazon while I learned more Spanish with F."
