Reviews from this trip
The trip was amazing. Everyone was very accommodating, the food was great, and I loved the small boat environment and all the people on board.Leslie Rondon
The rooms were comfortable, clean and well designed so that our belongings could be stored away and out of our way. The food on the boat was terrific. Great chef and great crew....everyone of them. They made our trip a complete pleasure and spoiled us plenty. I highly recommend Ecoventura's Eric, Flamingo and Letty!Claudia Lubin
The crew on the Letty were there professional and did everything they could to make our experience memorable.Wendy & Tom Lincoln
Our naturalist on the Letty (Ivan) was a true delight. He was so excited when we were excited. Energetic, enthusiastic and a true pleasure to spend 8 days with.Linda Zink
