The Amazon & Rurrenabaque

The Amazon & Rurrenabaque

After a 22-hour delay I have finally arrived in Rurrenabaque, I met some really nice people at the airport and have booked on a Pampas Tour into the Amazon with them.  We all went out to dinner together and then to Mosquito Bar which is a really cool little bard made to look like a jungle hut.  I had a few cocktails, Jungle Juice and Mosquito Bite, which I think following my last few days of sickness was not a good idea.

I left for the Pampas Tour the following day. Read about it here: Tour into The Amazon Rainforest

Upon my return to Rurrenabaque after the 4-day tour I continued to spend time with everyone from the tour.  We decided to hire a boat and travel to an island in the middle of one of the larger canal.  Some of the guys swam at a little beach we found and then we decided to take a walk into the bush. where we came across a local tribe.  It was an incredible experience, usually when I’ve visited places like this it has been on a tour.  Once of the young boys in the village climbed a tree and collected grapefruit, one of the elders cut them open and offered the halves to us to drink – it was very cool.  Thoroughly enjoyed the day.  We all checked into the same hostel upon our return which had a rooftop balcony.  That night we had a BBQ on the rooftop which was really nice.

The group had decided to book the jungle tour which I was desperate to do but I have been so unwell for over a week I need to fly to La Paz and see a doctor.



I love travelling and try to go 'off the beaten track' as much as possible. I've travelled through out 50+ countries and cannot wait to reach my next target of visiting a total of 100 countries around the world.
