Boat to Rurrenabaque 4 days/3 nights
Madidi’s never been closer than now!
The only Jungle Tour that starts from La Paz (or Coroico), the only Jungle Tour in Bolivia and South Am that will show you all the layers of the Jungle. The only Jungle Tour where you’ll be in close contact with the Rainforest because you will not only get beautiful guided walks in the Rainforest, you will get different scenery from the boat all the time and you will see an area of Madidi National Park that nobody else does . On this tour you will see the upper and lower sections of the Cloud Forest and the upper, intermediate and lower sections of the amazing Deep Rainforest. Only on this tour you will go straight through a Jungle Canyon with cliffs 200 m high.
The amazing way to get to Rurrenabaque and after do the Pampas (grasslands)

Before you go further on the programme we want to tell you that on the first day we will go on a public bus to the River. That is part of the agreement Deep Rainforest has with the locals in order to share the business. But don’t be scared. It is part of the agreement that bus drivers will be flexible to stop if needed (to pee) and absolutely helpful.

Once we pick up the people coming from Coroico we will have a 2 hrs ride to the next town called Caranavi. There we will have a stop for proper toilet. After that we will have the last 2.5 hours to the River Town where our guide will be waiting for us to take us to the Hostel.(Hostel is pretty basic)

ENGLISH SPEAKING GUIDE?
No English Speaking Guide available. We strongly believe that only the men born in the jungle are those who will lead a tour properly in the Jungle. Never a City slicker jungle guide will know that well the jungle than the jungle men born in the Rainforest. We advice to learn some spanish which will be good enough to get along on the trip. Our guides give extremely understandable explanations using gestures, hands and parts of the body. They speak perfect Spanish though.
You can bring all of your staff. We put your rucksack at the front of the boat covered with plastic.
