Besides most animals and birds mentioned in other reviews, I was fortunate to also see a Rhea which is similar to an ostrich but a native of South America. Look out for one or ask your guide to show you one. Norman of Madidi Tours used his keen hearing and spotting to find one for me. I have done another... More

If you can only do the jungle OR the pampas tour, I'd say go with the Pampas if you want to see a lot of animals and go with the jungle tour if you want to learn about plants, but be prepared to not see any animals in the jungle. We only saw a snake in the jungle in 3... More

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

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
