Rurrenabaque is one of the main starting points for eco-tours to the Amazonian jungle and pampas. Perched between the surrounding jungle and the River Beni, this little frontier settlement is the loveliest of Bolivia's lowland villages. Many holidaymakers come to explore the nearby Madidi National Park and Pampas, which are home to caimans, macaws, monkeys, turtles, piranhas, pink dolphins, anacondas and capybaras (the world's largest rodents). Visitors can also take dugout canoes down the river or simply enjoy the rainforest's immense biodiversity. The terrain varies from mountain cloud forest to savannah.
