Though there isn’t really that much to do in town, Rurrenabaque’s appeal is in its surrounding natural beauty. It’s easy to pass a day or three here while waiting to join a tour. Scramble up a 295-step staircase two blocks from the plaza, and then up a dirt-and-stone pathway to a mirador (lookout), and finally to a big cross (La Cruz) overlooking town and the Beni. Bring your hiking boots!
