Tour Plan

Day 1: RURRENABAQUE- SANTA ROSA DE YACUMA- PAMPAS DE YACUMA

Leave Rurrenabaque bound for Santa Rosa del Yacuma, on a trip lasting around three hours as far as Albergue Caracoles lodge, next to the River Yacuma. Pampas de Yacuma is an area of unspoiled marshland resembling an impenetrable maze that is home to a wealth of flora and fauna. It is registered as a Protected Municipality and is found in Santa Rosa del Yacuma in the Department of Beni. Nine indigenous communities live in the area: Mojón, San Bartolomé, El Triunfo, Villa Fátima, San Cristóbal, Picaflores, Awaizal, El Rosario and El Candado; It contains more than 100 cattle ranches and around seven thousand inhabitants.
Lunch and time for a rest in your hammock. This is necessary to recover your strength and energy, because later there is a boat trip programmed to spot wild animals. With luck you will see several species including alligators, turtles, capybara, pink dolphins, monkeys and birds. As WCS Bolivia points out, this area is home to a large number of species, of which three are critically endangered as well as being endemic to the zone: the Rio Beni titi (Callicebus modestus), Olalla Brothers’ Titi (Callicebus olallae) and Blue-throated Macaw (Ara glaucogularis).

Day 2: PAMPAS DE YACUMA

A full day starts with a good breakfast followed by a walk in the pampas in search of anacondas and lizards. Then lunch and a rest in the lodge. Optional activities are available in the afternoon: fishing for piranhas in the river or swimming with dolphins. After dinner: a boat trip to see more lizards.

Day 3: YACUMA RIVER- RURRENABAQUE

The morning is set aside for a boat trip on the River Yacuma to see yellow monkeys or chichilos. Then lunch followed by the return trip by bus to Rurrenabaque, arriving at approximately five o'clock in the afternoon.
