We went on a tour with Donato tours to the pampas for two nights for 450 BOB. Roberto was a very good guide, enthusiastic, patient and very good at spotting animals. Also the food was amazing, getting pancakes for breakfast! The lodging was OK, but what can you expect from the jungle? Also a lot of mosquitos, so bring long... More

This River is beautiful, it has a lot of amazing animals, you can see all of them along the river, if the day is sunny is better because the animals go to the riverside for sunbathing and you can see them closer. The travelling along the river is relaxing and unforgettable.

Yacuma river, near Santa Rosa Town, is a Local protected area. Compared to other sites this is one of the best conserved areas, as tourism increases the poaching and illegal fishing reduces. Therefore, you can see lots of willdlife; several bird species, capibaras, the bolivian river dolphin and lots of caimans (alligators). In Rurre, there are several tourist companies, so... More

Our guide, Ovidio, was excellent, knowledgeable and professional. Our group was small, four people, which made our experience personal and tailored to our... More

We really enjoyed our Pampas Yacuma trip with Indigena Tours. The guides were knowledgeable and helpful, the lodge was basic but comfortable and the food was great. We saw lots of animals but there was also plenty of time to relax in the hammock room. Vanessa in the La Paz office was very helpful and we were able to add... More

If you want to see animals, opt for pampas. In the jungle tour, good guides can tell you about the properties of the different plants and trees and let you taste some of the fruits and can see many insects and butterflies.To spot wildlife you have to be lucky, most of the animals prefer to stay hidden. One of the... More

We did the Pampas tour with Escorpion Travel and had an amazing time from start to finish. They were the cheapest we found but the cheaper cost did not affect the quality. Our guide Sam was fantastic he was very knowledgeable about all the wild life and went out of his way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Even... More

We loved the pampas tour with dolphins! Our guide Anthony was very good in English and took us on more private locations so that we didn't feel like we where on a tourist tour with 500 other people. The food we got on the tour was very good, just keep in mind that the salad is rinsed in local water... More
