A Goodbye to la Selva

Enjoying a tour in the jungle outside of Puerto Maldonado, Peru with Yakari Eco Lodge.

Ziplining, kayaking on the Madre de Dios River, and Monkey’s Island.

I spent my last day in Puerto Maldonado enjoying a jungle tour with Yakari Eco Lodge. For 95 soles, I partook in ziplining, a canopy walk, a log walk, kayaking on the Madre de Dios River, and playing with monkeys on la Isla de Monos. Not much to say. It was a visual day. See it through my eyes…
