This Inca jungle trail was a really fun adventure. The accent was on Fun. It seems like everyone was having the time of their lives, even our guide, David. First, we got to go Mountain Biking (all downhill). Then we went river rafting. We also got to soak in the hot springs and totally relax. And we just loved Zip-lining.
Machu Picchu for dessert was a great experience. Nothing too serious. Lots of fun times. I would love to go again.
I really had a fun time. The level of difficulty is not too bad. So it is more or less a relaxing trek And to get to see Machu Picchu is the absolute best.
