The Bolivian Amazon: Hotel Maya

Hotel Maya

Hotel Maya is a 10min walk from the pretty main plaza in Rurrenabaque, an agreeable little port on the Rio Bení, tributary of the Amazon.  A modern hotel, it has a lovely situation on the river bank, with a well-kept garden featuring mango trees, hammocks, a small, well maintained pool with loungers and a shaded terrace with complimentary coffee machine.

The 20 rooms (mostly doubles and twins) are distributed over two floors, of a similar size (large) and décor. In 2015-16, they are all being refurnished with cable TV, minibar, air conditioning, ventilator fan. Towels for the pool are provided. Complimentary Wi-fi is available. Little English is spoken but the staff are friendly and helpful.

What our experts say

There's a lovely atmosphere at this friendly hotel which welcomes business travellers and families alike. It's a relatively simple place but rooms are surprisingly well provided with amenities (you may be wary of the electric showers: you can turn the electricity supply at a wall socket, its usually  hot enough for a tepid shower to be preferable anyway! Relaxing by the pool on the edge of the broad river Bení is a delight.
