Tucanopy

We left Maquipucuna in the late afternoon and arrived at an organic/experimental farm called Tucanopy. There to greet us was an epic battle between a Dachschund named Lupe, and a wild pig that the owners had named "Julia Roberts." Just wait until you see the video.

We took 6 ziplines that were hundreds of meters in length through the canopy of the jungle. Sometimes you would have to kick palm trees and such out of your way, but mostly the flora would kick you before you even noticed. It offered such an incredible view of the forrest that it was simply amazing. We got tremendous video of it!
