Traveling in the Amazon is the dream of millions of people from around the world, and the book you hold in your hands will help you accomplish the easier, happier and more affordable trip than you had taken in your life.
Obviously, there are still many people when referring to the Amazons; they immediately relate it with nightmares and wild adventure full of adrenaline with piranhas, anacondas and other species unknown to us. However, modern advances on technology have brought the Amazons closer to you, and the days connecting the Amazons trips to horror movies were left behind.
Today and right now, you can conveniently catch a flight from anywhere in the world and spend a couple of days in the Amazon rainforest. As well, you would make a longer journey, as I did, from the beginning of the river in Peru through Colombia until the end of the river in the beautiful beaches of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. Throughout this journey, you will discover that the Amazon is full of brilliance and moments of magic that always make you feel very grateful for having given yourself the opportunity to enjoy this natural wonder.

In addition, I will be presenting you, different routes, some more wild, and others practically unknown, like the chapter how to reach the Amazons River by bus.
Nevertheless, the travel experience that I am proposing is not simply to entertain yourself and enjoy the scenic beauty that offers this powerful river, but it is an invitation to come in a journey that would make a positive difference in your life, as it did in mine. I am inviting you to become more aware about our environmental problems, the preservation of our invaluable natural resources, our global warming issues and current deforestation suffering the Amazons. Moreover, why should you care? Because as we all know, this mystical river that forms the Amazon basin, not only benefits all residents throughout South America, but it...
