A mix of FAM trip, media networking and an incredible opportunity to immerse, give back and promote travel as a force for good.
The Jaú National Park is the largest freshwater forest park in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with an abundance of wildlife and beautiful scenery; and yet it is still relatively unexplored by tourism.
