Traveler Comments

Perfect, Oscar Mario Salazar was the best guide ever. Learned a lot and saw a lot of wildlife in surrounding area

- TERRY J, JAN 2018

We did not catch any fish but the lake was beautiful

- JERIAN C, JUN 2017

They (my father and son) had a great time. One of the highlights of their trip. We especially liked that they were the only two people on the boat. Very special experience for grandpa and grandson. Other companies didn't offer this.
