Day 6: Rio Buritaca Travel to our riverside hostel this morning. With its own private stretch of river beach, gently swaying palms and a beautiful swimming area, it’s like heaven on Earth. Sip a smoothie from the  river bar, or snooze in a hammock, before a bonfire and cocktails tonight

Day 7: River tubing! Today we’re going tubing down the river, beer in hand until we reach the beach, where the river ends. It's not a strenuous activity... so it's perfect to ease the hangover. It’s a hard life aye!
