We had a wonderful and memorable time at Chalalan. If you like walking, seeing wildlife in their natural habitat, learning about the forest and a bit of adventure this is for you. As others have said the boat trip to the lodge was as much fun as our time there. Our guide Andreas had such skill in seeing and hearing the widlife and knew the names of all the flora and fauna we asked about (in English but he also seemed to know the Spanish, scientific and local names). Andreas met with us at the airport and was with us throughout. He is from San Jose village who run the eco lodge and we had interesting conversations about life in the jungle, how the lodge came out, Bolivian politics etc. The food was delicious home cooked meals that, alongside the regular fresh and cold juices were restorative. We tried not to set expectations for what wildlife we might see but we're very lucky including jaguar, 5 types of monkey, snakes, spiders and many wonderful and tuneful birds. I filled a page in my notebook with everything we saw. We came out rather smelly and bitten but very happy. Thank you
