We want to encourage you to leave the Panamerican Highway and explore the Amazon region of Ecuador. We drove part of the “Troncal Amazonica”.
Ecuador has a lot to offer: colonial cities, coastline & natural beauty. We really enjoyed returning to Ecuador and revisiting known or visiting new places.
La Selva occupies 60% of Peru – yet it’s not on the tourist radar. We travelled overland through a large part of this section of the Amazon rainforest.
The city and region of Cajamarca are historically very important. It was home to numerous pre-Columbian cultures, and the last Inca king was killed there by the Spaniards.
The sarcophagi of Karajia, in the North-East of Peru, are a fascinating example of the cliff burial sites of the mysterious Chachapoya people.
We are happy with the space our Berta offers. Only when I have to drive a road so narrow that the wheels touch the edge on both sides I wish I could shrink her.
