Our travelers have the opportunity to be introduced and exposed to endangered habitats, providing each traveler with first hand learning experiences, respect and understanding for the environmental format.
One would have the opportunity to stand on the tip of an active volcano, hike into tropical forests, immerse in a real jungle (where you will watch acrobatic monkeys), admire exotic birds (as brilliant colored Macaws and Toucans).
