AAX - Andes to Amazon

Sun, 02/17/2013 - 02:57

Hi! I'm wondering if anyone is arriving back from this trip or has gone on this trip recently. Could you give some insights into the trip, tips & ticks, and your take on the security issues? Both the UK gov and my own (Can) have quite clear warnings about personal assaults throughout and armed bands in the north.

Thnx in advance!

No problems at all, i never felt so safe.

Petegoods - Thank you for the info on safety - that's welcome news.  One other question - if you have just returned from AAX, what is the scoop on biting insects?  Would you suggest that we carry/use a mosquito net while in the Jungle?  Also - did you need/use insect repellant at any point during the trip?

Hello Beth

I suggest take a mosquito net for the 2 nights forest lodge.  Take all repellants, with you.  I would keep them all the time with you.  Or hopefully your room mate will get all the bites, and not you.  Just like my roomy.  Your guide always tells you in advanced which part of the trip you will need to use them.

Petegoods - thank you very much!!! I appreciate the info - and will pack the mosquito net as well as repellant.  Again - thanks!  Beth
