Rurrenabaque and around

Rurrenabaque, or 'Rurre' as the locals call it, is the jumping-off point for the many Amazon jungle and pampas tours in this once-remote corner of Bolivia. It is only 200 km northeast of La Paz as the crow flies, but 430 km by road. Situated on the east bank of the Río Beni, with San Buenaventura on the opposite shore, Rurrenabaque is an important trading centre and transportation link for Beni department. A rapidly growing town, its status as a gateway to the Amazon has brought it some degree of prosperity, and many of its residents are involved in one way or another with the burgeoning tourist trade.
