ROUGH Amazon Jungle Trip: Going deep into the Amazon, an 8 hour boat ride from Iquitos, Peru.

We're heading deep into the Amazon Jungle in Peru, far away from the usual tourist crowds. Our adventure starts with a bus ride from Iquitos to Nauta, then a boat ride to Requena, Peru and another 4 hour boat ride to our Amazon Jungle accommodation. The place we stayed was not at all what we expected: it was run down, dirty, and a bit dangerous. Check out the full blog post of our visit here.
