Introducing Riberalta

Despite being a major town in Bolivia’s northern frontier region, Riberalta has very little going for it, unless you count the exciting fact that this is one of the world’s top Brazil-nut production sites. A crumbly place, it is pleasant enough, even if the only thing to do is watch the orange sunsets and circling motorcycles as you enjoy a beer on the plaza. According to locals of both sexes, las Riberalteñas are the most beautiful women in all of Bolivia – but they would say that, wouldn’t they?
