The Bolivian Amazon, in the northern part of Bolivia, extends across seventy percent of the national territory and encompasses the departments of Beni, La Paz, and Pando, amongst which the last has the most significant extension; it is approximately at 200 to 250 meters above mean sea level and is home to wild nature and indigenous cultures that conserve their ancestral habitat.

This paradisiacal place encloses the “Madre de Dios” river region in the Bolivian Amazon Basil, which is similar to a giant anaconda that twists around and changes colors, filling everything it surrounds with life.

The Bolivian Amazon is one of the greatest biodiversity treasures in the world; characterized by the existence of primitive ethnic groups who live with wild and exotic animals (tigers, monkeys, parrots, alligators, anacondas, etc.). The virgin jungle is an explosion of nuances in green colors in a spectacular show of giant trees, exuberant plants and exotic flowers.
