The tourist town of Rurrenabaque is located in the foothills of the Andes and the endless plains of the tropical forest. It is considered as the entrance gate to the Bolivian Amazon. From Rurrenabaque, you can ride by motorboats along the Amazonian rivers up to Madidi National Park where you will find the eco-lodges of the Tacana ethnic community of San Miguel.
