A best seller 20 years ago!

 This was the best seller tour when Merida received many backpackers in the 90's and early 2000 before the Venezuela's collapse.  Since I enjoy giving my clients the opportunity to experience authentic and fun experiences I decided to include it again in the catalog under this "tours with departure dates" formula. 
January- May will be just perfect, almost guaranteeing the infamous Anaconda and seeing plenty of Wildlife when the dry season is on. 
One thing I know, you will be happy to join such experience just as many people did back in those days
