A 5-day Pacaya-Samiria Adventure Aug 06, 2016
Amazon Explorer is a tour operator focused on adventure. We have just returned from a 5 day trip and they are simply fantastic at spotting animals that are hidden away! We saw Dolphins and monkeys (plenty), sloths, tarantulas, a big anaconda,caught lots of piranha for dinner, electric eels, macaws, Falcons, Eagles, toads, and even an alligator! Our favourite bit was canoeing in the pitch black to find alligators. So surreal. Amazon Explorer were professional, as well as Leila the cook and the helper the whole time. Hector the boss was helpful too with any questions.

Before you go, afew things to note - you're not staying in lodges, or even tents, but simply a tarpaulin strung between trees, a tarpaulin below you, and a mosquito net to protect you. If you don't like bugs, don't do it! We found a tarantula about 1 metre from our tent, and centipedes and spiders in our shoes! You're in the middle of the Amazon so there are thousands of bugs around you. No toilet facilities, no shower (just a canoe, you, the Amazon, and a bucket of water). But this is by far the best way to see everything. We've spoken to afew people who have stayed in lodges, or not gone as far into the jungle as we did, and they didn't see anywhere near the animals we saw. Just be prepared. Bring LOTS of bug spray, long pants and tops, and a fan. We had the best time and thoroughly recommend Amazon explorer- if you're going to go into th amazon, use these guys.
