Day 1: Cochabamba – Villa Tunari – Carrasco National Park

At 08.30 in the morning we’ll leave for Cochabamba’s tropic: Villa Tunari 3 ½ hours and 160 km, a quiet trip to arrive at the Jungle Hotel El Puente, where we’ll have a nice lunch while enjoying the exuberant landscape that surrounds the hotel: the jungle.

After lunch, we’ll visit the guacharos with a guide in a tour that takes from 2 to 3 hours through a path in an intervened forest of Carrasco National Park (PNC), where we’ll have the chance to know the natural habitat (caves) of several bat species and the emblematic bird of PNC: the Guácharo (Steatorniscaripensis), a species with nocturnal habits that constitute the only nocturnal frugivore bird in the world. Besides we’ll receive information from our guides about the biological diversity that characterizes the PNC.

Return to El Puente Hotel to dinner and enjoy the hotel’s facilities, such as the ponds, the pool, the hammock hall and the ecological paths.

Day 2: El Puente Hotel – Rafting – Machía Park.

After breakfast, we’ll leave for Hatunpampa at approximately 20 km away from El Puente Hotel, where we’ll receive an explanation and we’ll learn the necessary techniques to enjoy the most passionate adventure activities in Chapare: rafting in the Espiritu Santo river, an activity for all ages. It lasts about 3 hours and in the end we’ll be able to swim freely in the river accompanied by the exuberant vegetation.

Return to the hotel for lunch.

After lunch, we’ll leave for Machía Park. A place where a variety of diverse wild animal species cohabit in harmony. In the park, monkeys, parrots, badgers and other species cohabit; it is a pleasant and nice experience for adults and children. Another park attraction is the topographic structure; from there you can enjoy a beautiful view of the tropical landscape and the buttresses of the oriental mountain range.

Return to the hotel for dinner.

Day 3: El Puente Hotel – Canopy – Cochabamba

After breakfast we’ll proceed to do an amazing activity: the canopy, a circuit that consists of a pulley suspended by assembled cables in a decline or inclination, what makes the person, who’s doing this activity, glide from the superior part to the inferior one, impelled by gravity. Besides, this circuit also has a rappel, a pendulum, plus it is possible to enjoy a tour in the jungle paths and a swim in the ponds. An ideal tour for people with adventurous hearts who enjoy the adrenaline and top fun.
