Fodor's Review

This eco-lodge in Madidi National Park offers a great chance to experience Bolivia's rain forest. The lodge, owned and operated by the Quechua-Tacana community of San José de Uchupiamonas, immerses you in a culture that has lived in the tropical rain forest for 300 years. The property offers three types of accommodation; luxurious cabins with private bath, twin/triple rooms with private bath, and twin rooms with shared bath. All are equipped with mosquito nets, balconies and hammocks where you can relax and read. While you're here, be on the lookout for hundreds of species of birds, troops of monkeys, herds of wild peccaries, and the elusive jaguar. You reach the park from Rurrenabaque by a five-hour canoe trip and a 30-minute walk through the rain forest to your thatch-roof cabin facing Lago Chalalan. A five-day/four-night package, with three nights at Chalalan, is available for around $470 USD per person, but plan to spend more with the airfare ($186 USD round-trip). For information, contact America Tours SRL.
