I did not see many local people, other than people in the rainforest lodges. Everybody seemed very friendly and helpful.

Travel between the villages seems to rely a lot on small airplanes. There is a road going north to south across the country, all the way to Brazil, but it is a long drive over dirt roads. I believe that locations away from the main road are difficult or impossible to reach by road, and rely extensively on air travel.

I stayed in four different lodges. All were run by local people. The food in all the lodges was very good. The guides from the various lodges were also very good, all were quite knowledgeable about the wildlife.
