Each season has its own charm, revealing new and distinct aspects of this remote place. At explora, we offer more than 50 explorations: on foot or on horse, half-day or full day, at all difficulty levels. All of our guides speak fluent Spanish and English, are very knowledgeable of their surroundings, and have the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification, allowing them to provide expert aid to people in remote locations.

Every evening at the hotel bar, our guides meet up with guests to program the next day’s activities. Our explorations are carried out in groups of no more than 8 people. As we believe in healthy exposure to nature, we also believe in healthy exposure to other travelers, hence we do not offer private expeditions. Our guests are sociable people with stories to tell and adventures to share; we are convinced that the people you meet during the journey are as important as the destination itself.

Liabilities: explora reserves the right to alter, change or eliminate parts or the totality of the exploration itineraries without prior notice, when necessary for the well-being or safety of our travelers.
