"At the point where the Caribbean meets South America on its North Atlantic seaboard lies an almost unknown, but incredibly wonderful land of unspoilt beauty, where the virgin rainforest leads to the Amazon Basin.
Where the jungle is still unexplored, rivers uncharted and mountains yet to be climbed."
