Welcome to the San Miguel del Bala Eco-lodge!
We are a small indigenous community-owned eco-lodge offering a wide variety of eco–tourism packages that allow you to discover our environment and the Tacana culture while comfortably lodged in private cabins within close proximity of Rurrenabaque. Enjoy our two eco-lodges, one set alongside the Beni river next to the community of San Miguel that allows our guests to explore the Tacana culture, and the other set deep within Madidi National Park where visitors can experience the amazing biodiversity of the Bolivian Amazon.
We are Tacana Indians who have historically lived along the shores of the Beni and Tuichi rivers and within the boundaries of the famous Madidi National Park for hundreds of years. We have several different eco-tour programs from a one day package to a 5 day/4 night adventure.
All of our eco-lodge employees, from the cooks to the guides, are native to the Tacana community of San Miguel. Your eco-tour with us will directly benefit the community as all of the profits go towards improving health, education, and basic services in the village. You will have a chance to share in the culture and nature of this amazing place, but also see the good your money is doing within the community. We look forward to meeting you, if you have an inquiries please do not hesitate to contact us.
