This was an unforgettable experience! I usually don’t write reviews but I am willing to make an exception.
From the minute we got to the airport, we were welcomed by “El gordo” who took care of our luggage and got us quickly through customs. Leo, who is the manager of the lodge,was waiting and got us all settled with the ride from the airport to the lodge. The ride was 1 hour and 15 minutes. Not bad. Upon arrival we were welcome by Christian who had fresh cold towels for us. The atmosphere at the lodge was like family. I was concerned initially, because we were the only 2 people at the lodge. That quickly went away. We were treated royally with a staff that was catering to all of our needs. The food was excellent. And I mean excellent. We never ate the same thing twice!. After lunch we had a short siesta, and around 3:30 off hunting on the first day. Cesar along with our bird boys would have a site ready for us, with everything we needed: guns, ammo, drinks, ear protection etc. Oh did I say hunting? It was just unbelievable! The minute we got to our field and see the waves of birds coming your way, your heart start beating and you get that adrenaline rush. Ramon, my bird boy did not waste a minute and gave me my semi and off to the race..just to give you an idea, 500 shots in 1.5 hours. Ramon would load my gun so fast, that you feel like you have unlimited firepower. Spectacular!
When we were done, Facundo would drive us back to the lodge were was dinner ready for us..I cannot speak enough about the staff. Everybody was very friendly, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Leo went with us back to the airport on the last day to make sure that there was no issue with our ticket. I should not forget Soledad who helped with the pre-trip planning. She answered my questions in a timely manner and helped us feel at ease.
Will do it again!
