  • In the light of the comments I don't would not gone to this company, strong fortunately we have not seen these comments before! EVERYTHING went perfectly. My girlfriend is me went in the off-season (October 2017). Although no one else is reserved we still left, just us two. We met our guide Jacky who has brought us 3 fantastic days. Respectful of the environment and wildlife he, everytime took the time to explain the flora and fauna. Do not use the engine of the boat in the early morning to enjoy the atmosphere and the colors. They managed to show us everything we could have hoped and more. We were on the trail of the anaconda 4 hours while some do that outputs an hour which has been successful, and have never met one another group through its secret corners. Being vegetarian ' it was no problem and on top of that I didn't have never eaten so well all my holiday! After discussing with Laura, the Director of the Agency, the unflattering comments were held under the direction of another person and she is trying to improve the image of this company which in majority part of the aware of the bad reviews. Anyway after our experience we highly recommend this agency!

  • To go to the pampas del yacuma must reach Rurrenabaque (by bus or plane). In Rurre engages the tour. I recommend Donato Tour. All depart charging 1,200 Bolivians and it depends on one and be able to negotiate. I did it for a little less. This for 3 days and 2 nights in Pampas del Yacuma. You take a day in the morning in a car (say mobility) and take you to Santa Rosa where you raise a motorboat by Yacuma River up to the hostel. On the road, and during the stay, you will see crocodiles, monkeys, dolphins, turtles and many other animals. It is very interesting to do. The food is good and the people are very kind, tours are really excellent. During those days is not needed nothing more since meals the guesthouse gives them and there are walks by the river or any of the fields during the day.
