These tropical lowlands contain the most sublime and beautiful forests in the Americas, but most important is that these forests are still standing thanks to the maintenance of rural and indigenous populations that inhabit them and benefit from them in a sustainable way.
The Amazonian destination of Bolivia, is represented by tall evergreen forests of the Amazon Hylean, located in the far north of Bolivia, in the departments of Pando, northern Beni and north of La Paz.
In the region there are large areas of virgin nature, especially in the Wildlife Reserves of Bruno Racua and Manuripi , where you can enjoy living close to nature experiences and its most exuberant and wild biodiversity.
In addition, the Amazon forest is part of the history of mankind, because during the last third of the nineteenth century, was the scene of intense economic and corporate exploitation of rubber or rubber extracted by the natives of the huge trees of the Siringa Today it is the area where the nut is extracted industrially (Brazil Nut) of slender Chestnut tree, which is destined for export to Europe and the U.S.
The north of the the Amazon is in the province of Pando, located northwest of the Republic of Bolivia, the fifth in its extension in the country . It is completely covered in 63,827 km2 with a high and thick forest, crossed by a complex river system that feeds from the beginning of time. It has, within the hydrographic network, the most abundant and beautiful rivers that empty into the great river Madera which flows into the Amazon.
The flora and fauna are considered as a unique reservoir of species that are the most rich and privileged biodiversity. Many medicinal plants are still unknown, although the first aboriginal tribes used them with success, considering that Pando in the Amazon jungle has plants that can be used to treat diseases like cancer.

MADRE DE DIOS RIVER
Considered the most beautiful river in the entire Amazon rainforest, on its banks there are many barracks and incipient campesino communities, dedicated to the collecting of chestnuts as their traditional economic activity.
Starts at more than 5000 meters altitude in the snowcapped Andes in the Department of La Paz, it's a river full of history, its corners keep the memory of missionaries, scientists, explorers, adventurers and rubber tappers faced by brave and daring marches to the unknown territory where they were the coveted rubber trees that wept and bled gold.
The largest river in Bolivia, at the confluence of the Beni and Mamoré, in front of the town of Villa Bella, the original name in the pano leguaje for Madera is "CAIARI" or "White water river" in clear reference to its fearsome rapids that seems to boil in its Dantesque show.
Was home to the legendary and nearly extinct Aronas which populated its banks since a date lost in the mists of time. The near extinction of these warriors, like others who were completely removed without a trace, dates back to the rubber boom of the late nineteenth century.
The characteristic of this river is the color of its waters, brown, resulting from the meltdowns in its course of some 250 kilometers from its source in Peru to its confluence with the Manuripi, with which it forms the Orthon.
Its name means "Small River " and arises in Peruvian territory, although in Pando it starts getting bigger because of the many rivers that converge on it. The Manuripi forms the so-called Lake Bay, an intact ecological sanctuary filled with animal species and plants typical of the Amazon.
Runs almost the entire northern border of Bolivia and the Republic of Brazil, until it flows into the great Madera. Its length is approximately 350 kilometers and is born of the confluence of two small streams that are Chipamanu and Caramau.
