​If you don't see any connection between monkeys and squirrels, you have to see these Bolivian monkeys. Though it is a common practice to tame them, the Bolivian Amazon still teems with these cute playful creatures usually hanging out on tree branches. The small town of Rurrenabaque on the Beni River is known as a gateway to Bolivian rainforests.

The most favourable time to watch Bolivia's native inhabitants is during the dry season between May and October when the majority of wildlife gathers near rivers to quench their thirst. There are also fewer mosquitoes at this time as a bonus.
