Before the trip, i did a lot of planning. Jim from Amazon Golden Snake was very responsive to all my questions. We took the Tour Conventional Amazon River (3 days / 2 nights) where we spent our nights at Eco Lounge with our guide Guido. Guido is able to speak English very well and very knowledgeable. So far, we enjoyed the trip and will recommend this tour to anyone who love the nature. Further information: Just take note that during the dry season, you will need to walk quite a distance from the river to the Eco Lounge as the river will be dried up. So, try not to avoid to bring unnecessarily items to the Eco Lounge. As for me, it was about 45 minutes walk including a small raft ride in the middle of a swamp. Do bring mosquitoes repellent and drinking waters for self consumption. I dont think it is possible to swim with the pink dolphins. In fact we saw a couples of them far away during boat rides. Do bring portable charges. There will be only an hour of electricity between 7pm to 8pm for us to charge our mobile phone.

We are honored to have your valuable appreciation of the services provided on your tour at the time. We always try to provide an adequate and worthy service to enjoy from the beginning to the end. From the reception at the airport and its respective transfer, accommodation, food, activities and staff It is true that in the summer season, the Amazon River plays some adverse situations to the good development of the tours. In the case of last year, the river bank where our accommodation is located, dried up more than usual and although we take our precautions in time, it is finally Mother Nature who rules. We hope that this year 2020 is not the same as last year. Even so, we will always be informing our visitors of the weather conditions and conditions in order to avoid misunderstandings. Grateful for your valuable contribution to this community of travelers. Regards, Jim Alejandro

I recently went on a 5 day camping trip to Pacaya Samiria with this company. As a woman traveling solo, I was understandably concerned about going off into the jungle for 5 days with a male guide because I have heard many stories of predatory behaviour on the part of guides towards women in this reserve. I went to the SERNANP office to ask for a recommendation of a company and they sent me to Amazon Golden Snake. I couldn't be happier with my experience! Ruth, the owner of the company, is absolutely delightful and my guide, Rogelio, was extremely respectful, knowledgeable and structured our days based on whatever I wanted to do. I would highly recommend this company to anyone and especially to women who want to experience the beauty and power of the jungle without any creepiness ruining your adventure. I'm already planning my return to Pacaya Samiria for a longer camping trip deeper into the reserve with these folks because they have earned my trust and I wouldn't want to go with anyone else. I never thought I would go swimming in rivers full of piranhas after fishing for said piranhas and seeing how many there were but I can't wait to jump in that river again!

Dear Madam, We really appreciate that you have trusted in us, in our team.

In Amazon Golden Snake, we usually talk with our crew and staff about this kind of bad behaviours and others. We can say to all future visitors that with us, you could feel safe. We focus in completing our trips and to satisfy only the good expectations of our visitors. We all thank you for your good review and for recommending us to other travellers. You and all visitors are always welcome to the jungle and to get its own adventures and to enjoy of the flora and fauna of this mystical jungle. Kindest regards, Amazon Golden Snake

I did a 10 day expedition into the papaya reserve through “Amazon Golden Snake” and it was absolutely incredible. A friend and I had two spanish speaking guides ( we agreed to this beforehand ) that were both very competent and fun to explore with. Roger, our main guide, took us on many incredible hikes and boat excursions through pacaya, while also giving us the flexibility to do/learn whatever we wanted in our 10 days to El dorado. He knew a ton about the forest, where to find the animals, and how to REALLY navigate. You will not regret an expedition like this. We knew we’d be sleeping on the boat or under nets on small beds, and we had no issues with that, this is the depths of the Amazon after all. A once in a lifetime trip that I will never forget! Warning, this expedition is not for the faint of heart. El dorado is very difficult to reach, and in fact we didn’t even make it. We had to work or way through debris in the water with machetes, and all 4 of us had to get out and push the boat in water up to our waist to get through. When trying to leave, we got stuck for 2 hours, and had to sleep in the “house of the anaconda” on the boat. It was really a survival situation, if we had not had enough strength to get unstuck, we would not have been searched for for another 4 days. Regardless, if you’re ok getting dirty, this type of long term trip is a fantastic REAL experience of the Amazon.

Pacaya-Samiria is the habitat of many species of flora and fauna. Many places within the national reserve are important for their location, their landscape or their great biodiversity. "El Dorado" is the best known of them. Trying to get there is the ambition of many travelers, own and strangers, discovering what it contains in its lake and surroundings, is the greatest achievement for every explorer. For your tour, every effort was made to meet this goal of reaching the same lake "El Dorado" while creating many opportunities to see many animals of the area. And so we spent great moments that remain even in our memories. We thank you for trusting our services and experience. Thank you for detailing your tour and share it. We hope to see you again and / or hear from you in the future. Always yours, Amazon Golden Snake
