Is Peru on your travel list? If it’s not, it should be! I’m sure Machu Picchu is on there but have you thought about visiting the Amazon Rainforest? Nik and I just got back. The place is unreal! I’m sharing my mini travel guide on the Amazon Rainforest and our stay at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica.

There’s so damn much to see and do. You’re surrounded by so much biodiversity. It’s a completely different culture. There’s no cell service, roads, or power lines. It’s an experience of a lifetime and to be completely honest, this trip has been my favorite one I’ve been on with Nik, ever.

It was such an adventure, and at the same time, incredibly romantic. We stayed at the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica and booked the Tambopata Suite. The lodge is beautiful, inside and out! Our suite had a private terrace + pool out back and hammocks up front.
