The New York Times rated Rurrenabaque, a small town in the north of Bolivia, third in a list of ’52 Places to go in 2020’. Just a 45 - 60 minute flight from La Paz, Rurrenabaque is the gateway to the Madidi National Park and the surrounding wetlands called Las Pampas. Madidi, located in the upper Amazon river basin, is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. As an example, 1,254 bird species are residents there, which accounts for 14% of bird species worldwide. There are a number of ecolodges, run by indigenous communities, located deep in the jungle where tourists can stay. In Las Pampas, you can go piranha fishing, alligator spotting, or even swim with rare pink river dolphins. Bolivian Express staff are always keen to help interns organise their trips to magical places like Rurrenabaque. What are you waiting for?
"Consistently overshadowed by Lima, La Paz is finally stepping out into the spotlight as a gastronomic city, using high-altitude ingredients and ancient cooking techniques."
