“Far away” is more than distance. When we have traveled around the world to developed areas, we know what we can expect – everything from roads to electricity, internet connection, and stores … On our 9-day trip to visit Peru’s Manu Biosphere Reserve we would be “far away,” and our expectations had to change.
We don’t expect fancy when we travel. We’re pretty happy with simple places to stay, and simple accommodations are what we got.
All of our accommodations turned out to be basic wood cabins with no decoration and a few screened windows. Mosquito netting draped over the single beds. None of the cabins had electricity and most had no hot water in the simple bathrooms. (Yes, bathrooms! A huge plus!) Candles lit the cabin at night.
Note: Before our visit to Peru, we did lots of research and chose Manu Expeditions’ 9-day “THE COMPLETE MANU BIOSPHERE RESERVE EXPERIENCE.”
