Amaru Bolivia

Amaru Bolivia is a tour operator based out of Cochabamba, Bolivia that provides authentic experiences through sustainable relationships with local communities in Bolivia and neighboring countries. For examples, travelers can canoe to the community of Mapajo deep in the Amazon, and join the Mosetén tribe as they gather medicinal plants in the forests or fish the rivers as they have for centuries. Or visitors can turn quinoa farmers and llama herders for a day (or longer!) with a local Quechua family amid the salt flats, smoking volcanoes and geysers of southern Potosí.

Amaru Bolivia stands out because it works hand-in-hand with local groups to ensure tourism is driving better living conditions and an appreciation of indigenous cultures. We offer you the opportunity to join the community too!

While community-based tourism is our main focus, we also realize that it may not be what everyone is looking for in a tour of Bolivia. We also organize more traditional tours that hit the highlights of the country (Salar de Uyuni, La Paz, Lake Titicaca, Sucre, etc.), showcasing the country’s incredible natural and cultural diversity. Our in-country network allows us to cater to client expectations and budget in terms of comfort and luxury.
