Its lovely here for the day. They really should sort the food out though and think about the service side of things. Both let the place down badly. Also, not sure that deafening party music and eco resort make a good mix. Visit during the week if you want a more relaxing visit

Its a lovely setting, maybe 20 minutes from the city, however the taxi ride was less than $10USD to get to town. The weird part is that you give you a wrist band (a bit like going to Wallyworld!) Upon check in and then say that even though we are going to be here for a week and use this... More

I never thought I could find a so ecologic hotel in Bolivia. This hotel respects and take care of the animals, and all living forms in general in a very outstanding way, from their special place for butterflies to the birds place, another special place for 4 or 5 forms of bees and their guides tell you all they know...

The many waterfalls add a naturalistic touch. The actual animal exhibits are ok but not quite what I expected. Not that... More

We spent last weekend at Biocentro Guembe, we had been there before on a day trip and the grounds are truly amazing. Staying there was something else at $200+ a night, it was truly disappointing. When we entered our cabin the smell of insecticide was so strong that the kids started coughing. We went to the pool and approached the... More

I've stayed in the biocentro Guembe for a week now. The place is simply...amazing: The restaurant is very rustic and yet the sophistication of their cuisine could well be found on any 5* restaurant. The property consists of an "ecoville" styled geopark fully featured inside a natural park full of natural swimming pools, great bars, and wonderfull accomodation, specially taught... More
