The Amazon rainforest of South America

The Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical forest in the world. It is considered “the lung of the planet” because it contains one tenth of all the forests on Earth. With the exception of Brazil, Peru has the largest extension of the Amazon. In Peru the two most famous cities that are connected to the Amazon are Puerto Maldonado and Iquitos. Both are amazing. My trips to the jungle of Peru are some of my most amazing experiences in life!
