Activities

Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, which can only be reached by water, is an incredible preserved haven for Amazon wildlife, plants and birds.

Daily excursions on one of the 8 person skiffs will take you exploring to view the Amazon and its wildlife close up. These will be led by the English speaking guides who are extremely knowledgeable and informative. Trips will take place both in the early morning and early evenings and will include some land excursions to the local communities.

Accommodation

16 suites measuring 240 square feet which all face out with wonderful panoramic views. Each has twin beds that can be converted into a kingsize double. Four of the suites have interconnecting rooms for families and each suite can accomodate an extra child.

Our comments
