Chartering your own yacht is a great way to see this Unesco World Heritage Site. These boats can be chartered on a crewed basis. Bare boat charter is not possible. Due to high demand, charter reservations must be made well in advance.
The first of the Amazon's natural products to be discovered by the outside world was quinine, an antidote to malaria. Obtained from the cinchona tree native to Peru and Ecuador, for many years this was a closely-guarded monopoly of the Spanish empire until the English botanist Richard Spruce succeeded in smuggling out seeds in the 1860s.
Thank you for your email, regarding our trip to the Galapagos.
The trip was very enjoyable, although I do unfortunately have a couple of complaints one of which is a safety issue, and the other I would like to be addressed maybe by some type of compensation.
Firstly, the condition of the diving equipment was very poor. There were holes in BCDâ€™s, unsafe valves basically very poorly maintained and unsafe. This is a major problem which I feel needs to be addressed. My husband........
