Check out this trip review and travel tips with images from the Zimmerman family, 5x alumni travelers having been on Wildland Adventures to Costa Rica, Patagonia, India, Kenya and Peru. They asked us if we could arrange a short weekend-to-weekend adventure to Cuba with their adult son and his partner.

Spoiler: the last reason is time sensitive... 5) Arriving at the Inca town of Wiñay Wayna After three unforgettable days on the Inca Trail, you arrive at Wiñay Wayna, an Incan town perched on a steep forested slope high above the Urubamba River. You wander its large complex of ancient dwellings, terraces, and still functioning waterworks thinking about how far you’ve come, how unbelievable the journey has been so far, and how excited you are for what lays ahead – the “lost city in the clouds”, Machu Picchu. 4) Paddling the Amazon River Traveling downstream by dugout canoe, glide...
