Welcome to Jungle Treks!
In a nutshell we conduct trekking expeditions in the tropical jungle. But it's much more than just hiking in the rainforest. Through our treks we reveal our natural wonders and take the wilderness one step closer to the human heart. There's nothing quite like falling asleep in your hammock seduced by the sounds of this breathing planet whether these sounds come from jungle creatures, gurgling waterfalls or distant thunder storms. We believe this is a great way to rekindle our connection with the Earth. It's not the only way and it's not for everybody but it's the path we've chosen for ourselves. If you think you share our passion, just come and become part of our family. I suspect you'll have a captivating insight into a world of wonders.

Jaguar sighting! – Certified Wilderness Guide Course
Right from the moment I contacted Rick I received very helpful responses and he even organised a skype chat to go through the gear; I would definitely recommend you take his advice on everything he suggests to be well prepared, and also allocate sufficient time to get the right gear. The small things make such a difference towards a better experience.
I cannot recommend this trek and Rick Morales, our guide, enough! Two friends and I went on this trek with little expectations (or experience) and literally all agreed this was the best trip any of us had ever been on. Rick was an exceptional guide. He was extremely organized, knowledgeable, experienced, thoughtful, and well prepared. He was also a lot of fun to be around…
I joined a group of randoms lead by the instantly likable Rick Morales and his highly competent team to go trekking into the abyss of the darien jungle…The journey took us into natures extreme – steep hard contour, dense, yet ever changing jungle landscape and in some cases stretching a hundred metres above us and miles from civilization.
