I decided to do the cheap way and hitch hiked to Rurrenabaque from La Paz. It was real fun, though i must say it was also very dangerous. It took us a bus ride to the first village outside la paz, then we stopped the first truck on our way to rurrenabaque with my friend. you can read the full story on my blog...more
Most pampa-tours are heading to río Yacuma in the district Santa rosa. We took the "Eco-tours" (25USD/person/day in 10/2002) and were really excited, our guide (Akim or may be Joachim) made his best to show us everything possible, including climbing trees and lianas in order to show us howler monkeys, we saw of course lots of aligators, pink...more
It begins to rain in december and the months of january and february are definitely not worth it, as the pampa will be only water and you won't be able to see any animal.I would definitely suggest you begin by la Selva before going to the Pampa, where you will see many more animals whereas the jungle is more dedicated to learn about the ancestral...more
On my second trip in 2004, the boat from the Reina de Enin was late to pick us up, so the driver took us another 5 km down the dirt road to Loma Chuchini. It is another ancient Moxos mound that is now owned by the Hinojosa family and is a private ecological preserve and zoo. However, the most interesting thing is their one room museum of artifacts...more

Before it was the local headquarters of the Suarez rubber empire. Long before that, it was one of the mysterious mounds of the Moxos civilization. On my first trip, I did not...more
Actually the fishing was in a lagoon off the Mamore River. During the rainy season, the river is high and swift. Piranhas like slower water. There were four of us in the boat counting the guide, Mitchell. The fishing was actually pretty good. I would have used a smaller hook but maybe they can bite through a smaller guage hook. Mitchell caught all...more
San Borja is a small town, lost between Trinidad and Rurrenabaque (North of Bolivia).
We had to stay one night there, in a hostel I would never recommend (full of spiders and mosquitoes). Though, the town was boiling : it was its banking day... Big feast, local people typically dressed, drunk guys everywhere, yelling women, brass all night...
San Borja est une ville minuscule, perdue entre Trinidad et Rurrenabaque (nord de la Bolivie). On a du rester une nuit ici, dans un hotel que je ne recommenderai pas (trop d'araignees et de moustiques). Toutefois, la ville etait en ebullition : c'etait la fete du village ... Grosse soiree, les locaux dansant en tenue typique, des morts-saouls partout, des femmes hurlant, et des cuivres toute la nuit...Related to:
