  • Go for a tour in this place but try to avoid the group. The best is to hire the guide and the boat just for you. And take your binoculars otherwise you won't enjoy that much. 
  • If you are ever in Bolivia and you want to experience in the Amazon I recommend Rurrenabaque, is truly a wonderful place. It can be reached by road from La Paz with the CAMINO DE LA MUERTE, the name says it all one of the most dangerous roads but exciting world, otherwise you can get there with small planes. This small village overlooking the river Rio Beni, a disarming beauty, surrounded by the greenery of the Amazon jungle. If you like to travel backpackers like me, don't book hotel or tour before arriving, we don't issue in overnight stays, then the beauty of these trips is just the unexpected ... and especially the search and the discovery of new places. In the village there are many small local agencies that will accommodate the jungle tours.

  • For 3 days and 2 nights, it's happening in the pampas. First by car and then by boat the Yacuma River along. Before we did that was growling to hear an alligator. From the boat you can see caimans, turtles, Capybaras, and even pink guess River. For bird lovers, there are neat to see what of the tucan via Hoazins, Caracaras and Pampa-Condor. Our guide (Dolphin travels) throttled the speed if we wanted to take photos, spoke a little English, but understanding it enough and was very eager to make us beautiful days. On the second day there is Anaconda-search and man wanders through the pampas where you meet others also flamingos dozens birds. Then we go to the Piranha fish. On the last day it goes to the swims (if they want) and if it is not too loud they get too close. You must venture into into the water first, of course, because there are also alligators and caimans on the sandbanks. The latter can be pretty grumpy and to among other things also furiously swimming on the boat when it comes into their territory. Allegedly, they should have spundus but before the dolphins and to swim safely if there are (it folded for me) my highlight was that feeding a huge Kaimans which was just over one meter from me and the Bank, in addition to guide. Who in Bolivia should be in a tour book and look at the pampas. Note: Cost has been increased since August 1200 bolivianos per person for 3 days 2 nights plus 150 for the entrance to the Park. Food is included in a tour and even water. The accommodation in the middle of nowhere are simple and sporadically decorated with a cold water shower, the food is excellent.
