Walking in the Amazon Rainforest & Piranha Fishing

A trip without cruising the Amazon river or stepping inside the Amazon rainforest is like a trip to London without visiting the Big Ben or the Tower Bridge.

Because there are protected by law in Key West!

This island is a great place to appreciate nature, with the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Everglades National Park and the Dolphins lagoon nearby. Located about 112km from where we first touched down in South Beach Miami, we stopped for three nights on this island on our journey to Key West.
