All about the Reina de Enin Cruise -Bolivia.

While aboard, you are welcome to participate in any activity. We may take one launch boat to a lagoon for a swim, another boat to a trailhead for a jungle hike, while a third may visit a remote white-sand beach for a relaxing walk and a check for fresh animal footprints. You can treat it as a relaxing cruise and stay onboard the Reina for your whole stay, or you can make Indiana Jones envious by going full-bore with camera, binoculars, hiking boots, and specimen bottles 24/7. It’s up to you. At the end of each day, we often meet upstairs on the viewing deck to have a drink, share the day’s adventures, and observe a remarkably vivid Milky Way.

Flotel Reina de Enin works with CYMA, a small group of university-trained, native Bolivian biologists that provide expert guiding to our groups.
