    "Incroyable aventure avec Douglas"
    Notre séjour dans la chapada fut un véritable succès grâce à notamment notre super guide Douglas Castro, fervent défenseur de l'environnement et de ses merveilles. Dans le respect de la nature et des autochtones, nous avons pu passer 3 jours de bonheur à l'écart de tout contact avec le reste de l'humanité, perdu au milieu de cette végétation luxuriante. Nous étions un groupe de marche très éclectique, rendant cette aventure encore plus enrichissante. Merci à planetaExo pour cette organisation parfaite ! A bientôt pour de nouvelles aventures !
