Seeing hundreds of species of birds is an incredible show to see, along with alligators, marsh dears and capybaras, all of them being nearly extinct species. The colors of the sky give a final touch to the enchantment of the place.
Being a guest in Rincon del Socorro is a way of being a part of the ambitious project that the CONSERVATION LAND TRUST has proposed and carries through with undeniable success.

Sandy G. & family
We used Eureka travel to go to Easter Island and then to Chile over the holiday season to watch our son play soccer in an International tournament. Analia and her staff were absolutely unbelievable. We travel extensively and Eureka travel agency was perhaps the BEST we have ever experienced. Not only did she and her staff work hard to find us the best and cheapest flights (which they did), she helped find us reservations at a hotel that initially was booked. Given that we spent a lot of time at the soccer tournaments and we were unclear about our schedule, she was extremely flexible and never pressured us into planning side trips. In addition, we later learned that our college aged son was going to continue traveling on to Peru and she gladly found him flights and helped organize an itinerary. Our return flight was delayed and we knew we would miss our connection back to California. We quickly texted Analia to see if she could arrange for us to get on a new flight which she did on her own time, well after business hours. She continued to stay in touch to make sure we made our new flight and even to make sure we landed safely home! I would give Analia and her staff the absolute highest rating possible. They are attentive, extremely knowledgeable and completely honest. We plan on using their services again as soon as we plan another trip.

Sandy & her family traveled to Chile in Dec 2015
Patricia & Brian
We have never used a travel agency to book vacations in the past. After this trip, we will never book on our own again! Everything was wonderfully organized and planned out for us (including tours, transfers, flights), so we never had to worry about a thing. Analia and the travel company were fabulous in finding lovely accommodations for us that we would never have found on our own and absolutely went above and beyond in answering all our questions (we had a lot!) and provided us 24/7 support when our originating flight was delayed (they even made sure all our travel documents were forwarded on to our next destination and helped us with documentation for our travel insurance claim).

Hiking to the top of Huyana Pichu (suggested by Analia)...a once in a lifetime experience.
Navigating the back walking trails of Easter Island on our own...it reminded us that there are still some unspoiled places in the world (with no cell service!).

We would love to have been able to stay in Peru longer and visited some other areas, there is so much to do! We are definately planning another trip back in the future.
Would also book more flights on South and Central American airlines versus United or other US airlines. Flights on LAN and Taca were comfortable and had nice, friendly service...reminded us of what flying used to be like!

Patricia & Brian traveled to PERU & CHILE in SEPTEMBER 2012
Steve C. From California
We used Eureka Travel to plan a 21 day trip for 6 adult friends to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. We all had a fantastic time, and have nothing but good things to say about Analia and the people at Eureka. When we began planning the trip, Analia was very helpful and responsive as we went through the various iterations about exactly where we were going and what we were going to see and do. The final itinerary was very clear and we had a phone conversation to go over each day of the trip to ensure that I knew exactly what to expect. All 6 of us shared the same itinerary in Chile and Argentina, but we went separate ways once we reached Brazil. Analia was very accommodating and helpful in making the different arrangements for all of us on the Brazil portion of the trip.

Once the trip began, we were all very pleased with the design of the itinerary (where we were, how many days we spent there, what we did, etc). Analia and Cecilia (who lives in Argentina) were both very responsive to the questions or issues we had along the way (there were very few). All of our accommodations were first rate and in great locations. All of our transportation was extremely well coordinated - the drivers and tour guides were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. We had at least 7 or 8 different tour guides in the different locations throughout the trip, and they were all incredible, with excellent English, local knowledge, and interpersonal skills.

Of course there were a few glitches along the way, but they were all quickly handled with a text, phone call, or Email. We have nothing but praise for Analia and Eureka, and would definitely use them again or recommend others to plan their holiday to South America.

Steve and his friends traveled to Chile, Argentina & Brazil in March 2018.

Eureka tavel met my needs for the perfect honeymoon & more. Analia was great from the start, in meeting my needs & adjusting where needed.

Always prompt response! Once on our way Cecilia helped me re-arrange things when my visa needed extending, again helping us out at every point! Once we arrived in Brazil, after a bump in the road with group travel, we were at our destination in Buzios, Brazil-AMAZING! We loved the recommended boutique hotel Casas Brancas & would go back in a heartbeat, the people were friendly & views were incredible! We visited at least 10 different Beaches.

We continued on to Rio & enjoyed the planned tours that Analia reccomended & were really great! Eureka travel has great taste & really care about your vacation! Can\'t wait till our next South American trip, we will definately go with Eureka!
