  • What Our Clients Say

    Rita Patel, UK

    I would describe Huasquila as comfortable in a rustic style, with beautiful gardens and nice social areas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and the tours were active and fun too. We did the adrenalin itinerary with rafting included - that was the highlight of our tour!

    Melissa Carrier, U.S

    The lodge was awesome. Miguel, our naturalist, was so personable and such a pleasure to hang out with. He went out of his way to accommodate all our requests. Loved the caves and the River Rafting was amazing! We really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend Sebastian and Happy Gringo
