With an English-speaking guide, this tours combines the best that this region has to offer — from canoe rides, to night tours and fishing trips. Enjoy one night of accommodation in an eco-lodge and another night in a hostel in the Amazonian city of Rurrenabaque. Once in the Amazon, all meals are included. Flights are included in the price. Transfer to La Paz Airport on Day 1 and Rurrenabaque airport pick-up and drop-off is included as well.

Itinerary

Day 1: Flight from La Paz to Rurrenabaque and arrival at the Amazon (L/D)
Catch an early flight from La Paz to Rurrenabaque. You are responsible for getting to and from the airport in La Paz and from the Rurrenabaque airport to the city center. Your adventure starts in the Rurrenabaque city center.

Travel by car from Rurrenabaque to Santa Rosa. During the trip, look out for heron families, sloths and a lot of flora and fauna in the steaming lowlands of the Bolivian Amazon. At 12pm, lunch is served in Santa Rosa. Then you will board a motorized dugout canoe in Santa Rosa and cruise the Yacuma River. Observe a large variety of reptiles and amphibians, lagartos, turtles, alligators, toads, lizards. Keep your eyes peeled for mammals like the night monkey, red howler, brown capuchin, black spider monkeys, capybaras, storks, kingfishers, falcons, hawks and eagles.

Arrive at the Eco-lodge at dusk. Check in while coffee and herbal teas are served. Take in a superb sunset over the Bolivian Amazon. A buffet dinner is served after the sun goes down. Typical dinners include rice, lentils, pasta, salads, fresh vegetables, and bread. After dinner, discover the Pampas at night on a canoe trip, in search of alligators whose eyes shine at night (bring a flashlight!) and other nocturnal animals.

Day 2: Activities in the Amazon and return to Rurrenabaque (B/L)
At 7am enjoy a buffet breakfast before leaving at 8am for a canoe ride and fishing trip on the Yacuma River. Try your luck at sport fishing; catching carnivorous piranhas among other varieties of Amazon fish (most of which are released back into the river; please note that this activity is seasonal and subject to change). Later search for eagles, toucans and sloths. Observe the lush, tropical vegetation such as orchids, bibosis and more.

Then, head back to the lodge for a buffet lunch before our departure back to Santa Rosa. After a 1.5-hour boat ride along the Yacuma River, a car brings you back to the town of Rurrenabaque, arriving at approximately 5pm (depending on the conditions of the highway). Relax and get a good night's sleep at a hostel in Rurrenabaque.
