Overseas Health Insurance News: Amazon 'definitely worth exploring'

Expatriates who have relocated abroad to South America ought to consider exploring the Amazon.

Broadcaster and travel writer at SarahWoods.co.uk Sarah Woods pointed out most people access this rainforest from Colombia, Brazil or Peru.

Visitors can see anteaters, crocodiles, jaguars and pumas, she explained.

Individuals aiming to have a more authentic experience can "stay with a tribe in an authentic mud-thatch village", the travel expert remarked.

However, those who prefer comfort can reside in luxurious lodges, Ms Woods pointed out.

It could be sensible to take out international health insurance when travelling through this jungle, which contains mosquitoes that are known to carry malaria.

"Everything from the smallest ant or insect upwards is so much stronger and more powerful than you," Ms Woods remarked, highlighting trees that are so huge it would take 30 humans to circle their trunk as an example of this.

She claimed this makes the experience of travelling through the Amazon both humbling and amazing, enabling humans to understand their own vulnerability and fragility.
