I am in the planning stages of a RTW and have been doing research into South America. One of the biggest things on my bucket list is The Amazon Rainforest.
Being on a backpackers budget I am looking to stay at the coolest places possible (tree top or jungle hut type dwellings) as well as take the best tours I can all while staying on budget. The rest of my budget research in the areas of interest (Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Boliva) suggests that I should be able to find something for around the $15-25 U.S. a night range, however when I am looking for specific places in the jungle I am finding "Mainstream" Yuppie Tourist sites that want MUCH more than this.
I am hoping that maybe someone on this site who has felt the same pull towards the ecological wonderland that I have and has been on the same budget restraints that I am would be able to guide me to specific websites that could help or could make some recommendations of places that they went.
Hoping that I wont have to push back my departure date,
