We spent the first half of the trip in the jungle and the second half in the pampas, the waterlogged flood plains of the jungle.
The trip was incredible - lots of jungle walks with a guide who taught us all about the uses of plants for medicinal purposes as well as what you can and canīt eat.
Wildlife we saw included monkeys, alligators, wild pigs, a HUGE tarantula, pink dolphins, macaws, toucans, turtles, an anaconda, a sloth and some massive rodenty pig like things called Capyburas.
We swam with the dolphins, tried to creep up on a herd of about 200 wild pigs, help snakes and I got about 100 mozzie bites on my bum.
