To start with, I’ll clarify that the food was quite good, guide was okay (abandoned us at one point) and accommodation was nice enough but very basic with no light or electricity so zero break from the constant 35 degree intense humidity. However, we always...More

We are a Finnish couple. In October 2018 during our Bolivia journey we made a short two day visit from Rurrenebague to Pampas, where we were accommodated in Caracoles ecolodge. Dusty bumby-road, which is under repairs, but because slow fart we could easier stop to...More

I was pleasantly surprised by the care Bala Tours took. Our flight was 3 hours late leaving La Paz. This meant I missed the published start time for the tour. I expected to have to go to their office and grovel to start the tour...More

If you want to get away from it all this is the place to come. It's remote and isolated, you get there by 4WD which is 2 and 1/2 hrs from Rurrenabaque. (A road is being constructed -will take 2 years) The food is great...More
