Are you ready for adventure in the Bolivian Amazon Rainforest?

Below I offer you a series of recommendations to make your trip a pleasant and safe moment:

  • Travel to Trinidad from La Paz, Sucre, Cochabamba or Santa Cruz by airplane, the cost of the ticket will not exceed $52 and the flight lasts 55 minutes.
  • Travel Tip: From Santa Cruz go by land, it is cheaper, approximately 11 hours and costs less than $20 .
  • The best moment for your visit to the Amazon Rainforest of Bolivia is between May and October that is the dry season, so you will avoid little mosquitoes. But the observation of wildlife in the rainy season will be better.
  • Choose your tour operator well; the quality of the integral service you will receive will depend on it. I recommend that you check chuchini.org they will support you with all their professional experience and you can even go in the rainy season, when all the other regions are flooded (national park madidi etc.)
  • Bring light luggage, such as a backpack, comfortable clothes with light colors and long-sleeved shirts, preferably cotton. Closed and high shoes, such as campaign boots.
  • You must be vaccinated against yellow fever and update hepatitis, polio, typhoid, and tetanus.
  • Bring your insect repellent, sun block, analgesics, and antispasmodics. But you do not need Malaria pills.

If you are looking for a classic experience, the choice for a tour across to the Bolivian Jungle, I assure you that it will be much cheaper than something similar in Brazil or Peru and nothing has to envy in terms of biological diversity of its vegetation and wildlife, nor in facilities for your enjoyment.

Boat Ride in the rainy season in the Amazon Jungle

You can stay in an ecological inn with amenities, a big house, gourmet food, and a highly professional guided tour, at a slightly more expensive cost, but always cheaper than in Brazil, and you also have affordable options for any pocket, with basic accommodations.

You could even hire an independent guide and spend the night into the Bolivian Jungle, is possible that can be more authentic, and even you will save money, but for these cases, the jungle demands that you have a good physical and mental condition and you must be trained.

Choose the classic or traditional way or the modern one and visit the Bolivian Jungle, you will be amazed and will make your experience an unforgettable moment.  Remember to contact chuchini.org and they will help you.
