We have very bad experience with acomodation in comunity La Chonta. After we arrived the landlady increased price list immediately, so our agreement from Buena Vista was just trick to get us to the middle of jungle, where we have to accept whatever she wants, because we have no choice. On the way back to Buena Vista she changed the... More

Dear friend . That is one of the reason that people have to contract a professional services. May be a bit more expensive. But a legal tour operator in the city of Santa Cruz would have much to lose if a customer is not satisfied. Besides the best entrace to Amboro park north side is not La Chota..It is Mataracu....

It's a great place to escape the busy and smoggy city of Cochabamba. The air is clean and smells fresh like eucaliptus:) There are some waterfalls and lagunas (however, one need to know where to find them). During the rainy season, take a waterproof jacket and boots, as it is usually raining in the mountains. At the entrance of the... More

Had a wonderful day wirh our guide from chani tours samaipata. Went to the yungas cloud forest. Stunning views sometimes. Those fern trees are almost prehistoric! Learned a lot about flora fauna wildlife (and coca and local cuisine lol) from our guide( only spanish speaking guide.) Bring sunscreen lunch water camera and decent walking boots can be slippery some parts.

The food was fantastic, and the walks were great. Due to over poaching in the park the quantity of wildlife is a bit sparce compared to say the pampas tours. The camping equipment... More
