The jungle houses numerous opportunities for exploration and discovery. The jungle is not the most hospitable of environments, as it is usually comprised of dense forest and underbrush. Jungles are often found in more tropical and rain prevalent areas to create tropical rainforests. About 6% of the earth's surface is covered by jungle. The jungle often holds many opportunities to find hidden and rarely visited adventures. The ancient ruins of the Mayan and Incan empires lie in the jungles of the Yucatan and provide a great opportunity to explore a historic and cultural adventure lying deeply secluded. The jungle creates great bird watching, wildlife, and photography opportunities that provide adventures in themselves. The jungle also hides river adventures and in some places of the word, caves and cenotes. All of these adventures are found within jungle environments and can create a great adventure with all sorts of opportunities.
Most jungles are equatorial and located within equatorial areas and are largely unpopulated, although occasionally there are tribes of primitive societies. As Jungles are located throughout the world, different species of plant and animals reside within each. It is important to know what animals and plants you should be on the lookout for before exploring any jungle environment. Also, make sure to take the appropriate vaccinations and shots before setting out on your jungle adventure. Being prepared is important as most jungles do not present a hospitable environment for humans. Besides the obvious risks, there are many dangers that may be prevalent within one specific jungle but not in another. If you feel like you are ready to explore the riches of what jungles have to offer, be prepared for a true adventure filled with secrets and experiences that will last a lifetime.
