The traditional Tacana-style cabins are surrounded by virgin forest which resonates with birdsong and the cries of howler monkeys, especially at dawn and dusk, making Chalalán a place of incomparable beauty.
There are 3 comfortable, safe boats to take you by river from Rurrenabaque to the Chalalán Ecolodge, navigating the majestic River Beni (Bala canyon) and River Tuíchi. Each of the boats is equipped with: a roof, comfortable seats, life jackets, raincoats and a first-aid kit, and each one seats up to ten people. During the trip you will be served a packed lunch. For daily excursions on the Lagoon there are five traditional dug-out canoes made by community’s artisans. Their solid structure can comfortably seat up to six people and provides you with the perfect vantage point to appreciate the abundant nature that will surround you.
Lodge excursions and activities include: themed walks, guided hikes, forest interpretations, birdwatching, wildlife spotting, canoe trips, night hikes, swimming. Chalalan programs are all-inclusive (river transfers, cabin accommodations, meals and daily guided excursions) from 3 to 6 days.
Plan your trip as far in advance as you can. Last minute travel is stressful to plan, and can often end up being more expensive.
