At  8H00 A.M. we pass by your hotel to pick you up and commence the tour travelling in a vehicle to a small town near to Amboro National Park. At this place we usually we meet the guide and switch to a 4WD car.

 This trip is on a paved road with direction northwest  from the city of Santa Cruz.The first part of  driving is of approximately 100 or 120 km. It depends on which part in the north side of the park we are driving to. Once on the highway although  we drive through  several small towns we do not stop until we get to  the small town near Amboro N park.

During the about 100 km of driving we go through Warnes just 23 kilometres from Santa Cruz. This town is known for the number of industries within its limits  including Viru Viru, the most important airport of Bolivia. 

The next population on our way is Montero. It is the biggest city near to Santa Cruz.On the sides of the highway we can see sugar plantation. Montero has the largest Sugar Industry in Bolivia.

Sometimes, on the way the vehicle that is transporting us needs to stop to refill gas. In Bolivia the gas is a lot cheaper than the gasoline or diesel, but the tank has no much capacity. In that case everyone needs to get off the vehicle for this operation. It is good opportunity to use the toilets

Once back on the highway Far on the left side horizon,  we can we can appreciate the mountains of Amboro National park a nature reserve of over half a million hectares,  Amazon jungle, which act as a magnet to attract rain.

When we arrive to the village near Amboro National park the guide.will be waiting for us the rest of the team that will make this trip possible.

The Amboro  tours on the North side can go to  five main entry points. These are; Mataracu, La Chonta, Macuñucu,Saguayo and Ichilo.

Some official entry points are more complicated than others. But all are located at about the same distance from the city of Santa Cruz. The closer would be Saguayo and La Chonta the farther is Ichilo.

When the trips o tours are only for one day the entrance to Amboro park usually has to be  La Chonta, Because it is a bit closer than the others.

From the meeting point with the rest of the team, we will begin the another part of this trip in a 4WD vehicle on a dirt or asphalt road. This second part of the trip  last about 40 minutes or 1 1/2 hours depending on how far is possible to get in the car and which entry point we are driving to.

In dry season starting in March or April through November the 4x4 vehicle gets all the way to the Red Line. During the raining season it could change.

Usually the first river to cross is Surutu. Which is the border of the park.

During the raining season, we may have to cross the river walking and continue on a cart o riding a horse. 

The Red Line is a  path opened with  machetes, in parts it is visible to the naked eye. The red line or "Linea Roja", separates the communities from the central part of the park. After this line  is prohibited human settlements and / or any activity or means that harm the nature.

After crossing the river we start going through the communities of Amboro park to reach the "Red Line" (Second border).

This park is where hundreds of streams and rivers start. 

During this tour we will be assisted by a guide who will explain about the lush vegetation and wildlife of the park. Visitor questions about this environment are welcome

Despite the one-day trip to the Amboro park is short, taking into account the time needed to arrive and leave the park. In a one day you can get a good overview of what this natural reserve

All the trekking should be talk the night before at dinner time.

Three days is a good numbers of days to visit the park. That is if you do not mind the uncomfortable of the jungle. And it should not be a problem for a visitor that appreciate the Amazonian or do not have trouble getting so close in contact with nature, which may also involve, ticks, mosquitoes and other insects. The presence of these insects depends on the place you go and the time of the year

Depending upon the entrance, there are circuits to waterfalls , natural pools in the jungle. The only way to get to these places is trekking. This impenetrable greenery seems never to end.

Where there are no hiking trails we use the streams. The type of hikes are usually within the red line. And almost always vary depending on the entry point we have chosen to enter . As this is a standard itinerary we do not specify with precision the trails.

In order to visit this place you need to be in a good physical conditions.

After this wonderful and unforgettable experience, we will walk back to the place where we left our vehicle in order to return to the city of Santa Cruz at about 19 Hours.
