We visited Chalalan Ecolodge in July 2014. After travelling of two weeks on the Altiplano, Chalalan offered a complete change in ecosystem, culture and, of course, altitude. The wonderful boat journey to the lodge is an adventure in itself. The lodge is within a huge national park. The beautiful lakeside location and the charming thatched buildings completed the picture.

I've stayed for 4 days in Chalalan and the experience was great.! I've learned a lot about nature and also about the culture of the community (San Jose). The service was remarkable, you just have to enjoy the adventure.

On our 12 day tour of Bolivia this was certainly the highlight. It's a destination tucked up river in pristine Amazon headwaters jungle. Birding was fabulous and the guides amazing at spotting birds in the dense canopy and pointing them out with laser pointers. The food was healthy and delicious and a cabins airy, shady, clean and comfortable. I can't... More

This must be one of the most exquisite places in the world. Our experience at Chalalan Ecolodge was sublime, to say the least. A unique long boat experience into the pristine Madidi reserve, and gentle walk into the heart of the Bolivian Amazon jungle allowed us to experience some of the most gorgeous nature and wildlife. Our guide opened our... More

This is one of the most beautiful places in the world! I loved the location and the warm hospitality. The indigenous nature guides were extremely knowledgeable and willing to share their culture with us. The hotel is just the right level of comfort given the distance to get there. Love the place!

This is a wonderful resort tucked away in the middle of an amazing rainforest. The staff and especially our guide was fantastic. We explored the forest day and night and continued to be fascinated with the wildlife and the general peace of the forest.

We went to chalalan with our family of four, kids aged 11 and 13 plus 3 other families with kids ranging in age from 7 to 19. What an amazing experience. We visited the community of San Jose de uchupiamonas first and then spent 3 nights at chalalan. The guides were amazing, intelligent and so great with all the kids.... More

We had a wonderfull time in ecolodge, nice people, good food and interesting tours around the lodge. The lodge is well organised to protect the nature, but still the comfort is very good. we can highly recommend Chalalan Ecolodge.
