Excursion de 3 jours en Amazonie très intéressante, lodge très bien et dans un superbe cadre, très bon accueil et nous nous sommes toujours régalés lors des repas. Quant aux excursions, elles sont diverses et variées et nous avons pu avoir un bon aperçu de la vie des habitants dans la jungle. Seul petit bémol : la première journée est un peu trop chargée et nous avons trouvé que la visite au peuple de Yaguas n’etait Pas très authentique.Une suggestion à la place de cette visite serait par exemple une sortie pour nettoyer les fleuves et les villages qui sont malheureusement assez pollués par les emballages/bouteilles plastique.
