Amboro National Park

Amboro National Park is a nature reserve in central Bolivia that is home to more than 800 species of birds, and many endangered animals such as the puma, jaguar and spectacled bear. The diverse terrain, made up of the northern Chaco, Andes foothills, and Amazon Basin, offers mind blowing vistas and spectacular scenery filled with rivers, waterfalls, forests, canyons and mountains. Visitors to Amboro National Park can pass the time birdwatching at La Chonta outlook, sunning themselves on the beaches of the Surutu River, or hiking the Yunga Mountains, and getting there is relatively easy: this beautiful national park is about 93 miles (150km) northwest of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, making it a popular excursion out of the city for tourists. A number of tour operators offer outings to Amboro and a range of activities in the park.
