My boyfriend and I did a 3-day tour to the Yacuma Pampas in early June and loved it. The amount of animals we saw there was incredible, e.g. yellow squirrel monkeys, red howler monkeys, kingfishers, capybaras, sloths, a porcupine, hoatzins, caimans, piranhas, not to even mention the pink river dolphins. The latter were the reason we decided for going to... More

I did the 3 day pampas tour with Mashaquipe. I highly recomend them for pampas tours. Our guide Sandro was great and super knowledgeable, lodge was great and isolated, food was great, and tour was well organized. The pampas tour itself I recommend. We saw tons of birds, 3 kinds of monkeys, capybaras, caimans, dolphins. We went fishing for piranas... More

Our Indegena guide Juan Carlos was very good. The only thing is that Indegena is not maintaining the sleeping hut very well and there are many holes in the roof so bats entered into our room at night and nibbled on our toes and there was bat poop everywhere. We are unsure if we have rabies now. The food for... More

My fiancé and I just returned from a 2 night, 3 day Pampas tour with Dolphin Tours. We had been looking into other companies but ended up booking with Dolphin Tours as it's the company our hostel in La Paz (Loki Hostel) works with so it was easiest. We hadn't heard about Dolphin Tours and they don't have many reviews... More

We just arrived back from our trip with indegena tours yesterday and can't rate the service any better ! Our guide Jamie spoke excellent English and was a pleasure to spend 3 days with ! He was really chilled out and you can see he has a real passion for wildlife ! Our tour started in Rurrenabaque where we hoped... More

What an experience!!! The Amazon River is as warm as bathwater and yes, if you are game and gullible enough to believe your guide, you too can swim with cayman, piranhas and pink dolphins. If you need to use the toilet in the night I wouldn't recommend standing next to a tree - a 30cm from the face Green Mamba... More

Just 5 minutes on the boat and you are surrounded by wildlife everywhere, amazing and the real jungle swamp feeling. Monkeys, birds, mammals and reptiles, they are all there! Go and look for the Anaconda if you dare. You can choose between backpackers party tours and the more serious and nature loving Tours with own lodgings and sometimes direct community... More

The only good thing about Flecha Tours is the food. They really offer a great variety and it tastes great. But apart from that there are no positive aspects about the trip. First of all they put all the people who want to go in a dirty Jeep. In our case we were 9 people sitting in the back! You... More

I wasn't supposed to spend my pampas tour with Mashaquipe (I had booked with Dolphin), but I was switched to the company and boy am I glad I was. It was a truly unforgettable experience, from the piranha fishing to the wildlife sighting, and also swimming with river dolphins and having squirrel monkeys invade your boat. Our guide was Ismael,... More

If you want to see: Black Caymans, white Caymans, capybaras, dolphins, monkeys, many birds, Anaconda, Sloths, pirahnas and very beautiful scenary without the difficulty encountered in the Jungle to spot them, you have to go there !! It's the Savana of south America
