Jungle and Pampas combo tour

USD440 per person

This is our 5-day trip to the jungle and the pampas combo. This is a combined tour of the pampas and jungle lodges Snails on the Tacuaral. This tour offers quality English speaking guides, accommodations and services at a good price value. It’s a great way to accommodate both the jungle and the pampas on the same trip without having to stay in Rurrenabaque for one night in the middle. Along with the salt flats, a tour of Amazon will undoubtedly be the highlight of your trip to Bolivia.
