The Bolivian Chaco, located at the southern part of the country, is composed by the Departments of Santa Cruz, Chuquisaca and Tarija, reaching an altitude of 100 to 400 meters above mean sea level; it is a region rich in natural and cultural resources, as well as beautiful landscapes. Large extensions of the Chaco territory are protected areas, such as the National Park and Integrated Natural Area “Kaa-Iya”, the largest in South America and the most important in a dry forest area; the Private Reserve of Natural Patrimony “Corbalán”, the “Aguaragüe” National Park and the “Quebracho Colorado” Reserve.
