IMPORTANT TIPS:
* It is advisable to provide for more than three days to get an overview of the area. If you plan to travel around the region, a week is not enough!
* Always hire qualified guides for the walks. While it is possible to travel individually, trails in the National Park without major difficulties, a tour will give a clearer picture and wider spectrum to help you understand the area.
* Always hire local guides outside the park. It is important to avoid moving individually and remember that a tour guide is highly desirable for reasons of personal safety. Remember that the Yungas are forest areas where it is necessary to avoid risk.
* Always, consider obtaining supplies of drinking water for both planning trips and camping.
* Bring insect repellent, especially if visiting the area during the rainy season (December to March). Sleeved shirts and long pants are best to avoid being bitten.
* Check that the batteries in their cameras are loaded, as beautiful landscapes await you.
