No Departures for this Tour

If the departure dates don't fit you, please suggest another date.

This is a trip for someone who has been to Bolivia on a standard tour concentrating on Santa Cruz, Cochabamba and La Paz or someone to plan to do these easily visited sites later. On this trip we concentrate on the more difficult ones that are often missed. The trip starts in Puno, Peru and ends in Arica, Chile.

Day 2. Early morning try again for the Canastero. Return to La Paz for a midday flight to Riberalta.

Day 5. After some additional birding in the morning we shall be flying to La Paz, where our vehicle will be waiting for us to take us to  Inquisivi.

Day 6. Inquisivi AM for Spinetail and drive back to La Paz.
