Solo Traveller

The Manu Adventure Park BRASHCO was an unforgettable journey into the heart of nature. From the moment we set foot in Cusco and embarked on our minivan ride, the breathtaking beauty of the Andes Mountains set the stage for an incredible adventure.

Exploring the cloud forest, navigating the Madre de Dios River, and encountering wildlife like jaguars and capybaras were just some of the highlights. The experience at Dorado Lodge felt like stepping into a natural paradise, with the sounds of birds and the freshness of the jungle air creating an immersive experience.
