Fodor's Expert Review Amboro National Park
An underrated treasure, easily accessible from both Santa Cruz and Samaipata, Amboro is filled with hikes through landscapes that range from high cloud forest to lush subtropical lowlands. It is a particular treat for birders and orchid lovers. A great option for the more adventurous is to stay in the park at the Mataracu Tent Camp, on the northern side of the park near Buena Vista, or in cabins in the stunning El Refugio de los Volcanes. The tour operator, Ruta Verde (www.rutaverdebolivia.com), offers trips to both of these sites.
