This was the Best adventure vacation my husband and I have ever taken. Exploring Patagonia with Bio Bio was amazing from the huge white water to horseback riding, yoga and a bunch of delightful num yum yummies. The location and weather were second to none, it's like they orchestrated with Mother Nature herself to give all of us participants the time of our lives. My husband has been rafting all over the world and he thinks the guides at Bio Bio are top notch, putting safety first while leading the rafts with ease down class 4 & 5 rapids. Did I mention the food? Don't think you will lose weight on this trip with all the great food that is to die for. I am still hoping for a cook book from Chef Cookie.
The views from the yoga platform (well, the views from everywhere) are breathtaking. Bio Bio has created a wonderful retreat away from life. I really reconnected with myself and nature on my vacation. Damara and Shari, the yoga teachers on our trip, are heartwarming, honest and beautiful inside and out. Their presence is a delightful awakening of the soul. It has been hard to practice yoga without the wondrous views and sounds of Patagonia around me. If you have the opportunity to take a trip with Bio Bio, don't hesitate. Get your passport updated and mail the check. It will be a life changing adventure where you will meet numerous worldly people who will become dear friends. Thank you Bio Bio for the welcoming hospitality. We hope to travel with you again soon.
