The 3 Day – Choclate Hiking Experience

We had a lot of fun with Daniel, Alina, Ediberto and his family. After the 3 days on the boat to Iquitos we needed some active adventure. Thats what we got 🙂 The hike was kind of challenging but no problem with the experienced local guide. Also did we learn a lot about chocolate and the medical use of the local plants. After the hard hikes in the nature we could enjoy the wonderful meal with a lot of love in cooking and decoration from Maria!! Our advise: look at the nice homepage, choose your trip and book it! We highly recommend it! All the people who where involved are very authentic, do their job with passion and thats what we can still feel after the tour. Thanks a lot Daniel for the 3 days, the hiking friends from Switzerland F& M!
