Hi I am Efraín Perdomo I am from the Tatacoa Desert and I have always believed that this is an ideal magical place to enjoy a bit of peace, as I was passionate about this place I decided to found «Tocayá Natura» and thus be able to offer this experience to more people in the world, always from the local, in constant contact with the nature and culture of the region.

The cost of this experience is way too high. You can find the same for almost have the price (120.000 pesos, instead of the 250.000 it costs on airbnb). Even taking into account airbnb experience commission (20%), the price still is around 200.000. And if you are in a group with people who got the same tour for either 120.000 or 150.000 and you are still asked to pay for the swimming pool and dinner this is not fair. The driver was a bit irritated when I asked him to drop me off 5 min further than the office. When I pay close o double, I would at least expect some basic service. The desert though is really nice, and having a local guide like Luis (Ephraim, the host of this experience, just organizes the tour) who is born close to the desert really helps to see everything in one day. I recommend going to the desert, however not by booking this experience.

We had a great experience with Efraín. The location is amazing and Efraín gives a lot of explanations about the environnement. He loves his job and we felt it all along the day. He takes care of his customers and he is very helping and responsive. The organisation was very easy. I highly recommend this tour and this guide ! Thank you again.
