We stayed at the hotel, so the safari was free. Alexis and our driver were great. We saw lots including a 2 toed sloth, a family of capibaras and lots of other things.

We had a very good guide, saw crocodiles, caimans, egrets, and bats. Didn’t really see much of the river but it was an enjoyable and informative trip. Would have done the day trip too but couldn’t fit it in

We only saw rodents, very disappointing. Of course we know the tour cannot guarantee we see any wildlife as the animals are free so we might have been unlucky, however they are not really making it easier with the loud tram and bright flash light....More

My husband and I took this tour. Saw a turtle, some rats and egrets. It's okay. Kids would probably enjoy. Not much to it. In an open truck.

Motor tram to noisy at night makes it hard to see animals at night. Didn't see one nocturnal animal.

An ok trip, but you go round in a big car and yes, you see a few animals, but you stay very close to the hotel and it's not that big of an adventure - but it's easy. I wish the hotel would offer walking...More

It's free if you stay at the resort and it should be. You drive the grounds which takes all of about 20 minutes in a bumpy truck , they shin a flash light in the tees and all you see is bugs. Find something else...More

I have done this activity several times each with a similar experience. The guide spoke English, Spanish, and some Portuguese and did a very good job of finding and describing the animals. We saw two Sloths, which luckily were low in their trees, a fox,...More
