Boat on the River in the Amazon Jungle

Our 4 days in the Amazon jungle was actually 3 days, but we kept pretty busy during those 3 days. We didn’t have electricity or hot water during those few days, but we were fed pretty well and we got to see quite a few animals. During our hike to Sandoval Lake I’m pretty sure we spent about 50% of it trying to take pictures of butterflies. They were everywhere and there were so many different colors, as you’ll notice from the pictures below (even though these are just a few of them). During our hikes and boat rides we saw many different types of birds, monkeys, turtles, insects, plants, etc. The below pictures are just some of our favorites!
