Fly fishing in the Amazon Jungle
Yuracaré is located in Bolivia, within the Isiboro Sécure National Park and Indigenous Territory, where the Amazon jungle meets the foothills of the Andes Mountains, between the regions of Beni and Cochabamba. It is part of the Vilcabamba-Amboró Conservation Corridor, in the Sub-Andean strip of the tropical Andes.
2020 will be an exploratory season, with 2021 being the full inaugural season where the full season will operate; May to October. The lodge will accommodate just four anglers per week, having exclusive access to the three different rivers during your stay. Whether we are staying at the comfortable Yuracaré camp or at an outcamp at the Namajti or Slotosama Rivers, anglers have access to three different and unique areas: the Ichoa River, Namajti River, and Slotosama River. This broad variety of water allows groups to fish fresh water every day, and rarely repeat the same fishing beat.
Comfortable Lodge Environment
The Yuracaré camp is located in the mountains. The climate is humid, and the area’s geography is characterised by a mountain range to the west giving way to large floodplains to the east. The most significant rivers in this vast drainage are the Isiboro, Ichoa, and Secure, all of which are tributaries of the Mamoré, which is part of the Amazon basin. This protected area is also an indigenous territory, property of the Yuracaré, Chimán, and Moxeño-Trinitario ethnic groups.
Yuracaré is a very comfortable jungle lodge, which was built from sustainable wood from the nearby jungle. There’s also the option to do outcamps at the headwaters of the Namajti and Slotosama River. The lodge features five tent cabins for up to four anglers and one host. Each tent has a comfortable bed, bathroom, electricity. Beyond that, wi-fi will be available at the main dining lodge.
Easy To Get to
Yuracaré’s operational area is about 125 miles (200km) from the city of La Paz and 270 miles (470 km) from Santa Cruz de la Sierra — Yuracaré’s base of operations.
There are several different travel options into Santa Cruz’s Viru Viru International Airport, with daily lights from Miami (BOA), San Pablo (LATAM, Gol, and BOA), Buenos Aires (Aerolineas Argentinas and BOA), Panama (Copa), Lima (Taca), and Europe (Air Europe). Most airlines offer direct connections to all major airports throughout the world.
