Leaving by boat from Rurrenabaque, the Madidi National Park is home to the most beautiful tropical forest in Bolivia. An unknown world to be discovered over the more than 18,000 kilometres squared of the park.

My suggestion:
Always go round the agencies thoroughly, compare the prices and the programmes before deciding who will accompany you on your expedition in the jungle.
My review

The 3 days I spent in the jungle during my trip to Bolivia were without doubt the best memory of my holiday. On entering the Madidi National Park you go into a world unknown to you.

You will have no choice but to put your complete trust in your guide. You will be completely lost and out of your comfort zone in the jungle. It's a world which is totally unknown to us. You have everything to learn here, a bit like a newborn baby. Here everything and anything can be extremely dangerous, the most insignificant plant can become deadly, just an ant's bite can give you a fever that lasts for days. I therefore advise you to always watch carefully where you put your feet and hands. Put all your senses on high alert and when after 3 days you have had enough of mosquito and insect bites, make sure you remember the best parts of this unique experience and remind yourself of all you have learned from it. The first feeling you have when you leave the Madidi National Park is simply the urge to go back there as quickly as possible.
