    El servicio de los guias y la tripulacion es realmente muy bueno. Todos atentos a responder las preguntas, muy preparados en cuanto al lugar, animales, costumbres d la zona, la fluidez con el ingles para los turistas extranjeros hizo q sintiera orgullo!!! El barco LA PERLA nos dijeron q era el mas nuevo del grupo y sin ser el mas lujoso tenia todas las comodidades q uno puede esperar: comedor, bar, patio c hamacas y mesas al aire libre habitacion y baños impecables y c detalles. Todos c vista al rio y a la selva. Itinerario. Perfecto. Recojo del aeropuerto y trasslado a nauta y d alli al barco. Excursiones breves pero atractivas para todas las edades... x el rio, pesca d pirañas, x la selva, aves y otros animales, puentes colgantes, visita a chamana y a comunidad d la zona. Paseo nocturno en busca del caiman pero sobre todo del cielo estrellado d pacaya samiria Super recomendable!!!!!!

    Gracias a don daniel y a don juan x esta experiencia!!!

    The crew of the Zafiro are simply amazing and I will return again to get to know them better. The Naturalists are passionate about the Amazon and extremely knowledgeable about all life in the Amazon. I’ve traveled a lot over the past 52 years and this week has been my best experience.

    Gina and myself are amazed at the love, care and dedicating the crew and naturalists to preserve the Amazon rainforest, it’s people and all animals. Don’t be surprised to see us back again.
