Talk with the guard of the Carrasco National Park Vladimir Marca, while we visit different areas of the park.

In the conversation he tells us how to identify the 4 different types of snakes: vipers, boas, snakes and corals, ending with an argument about the problems of deforestation in cities like Santa Cruz and the Bolivian Amazon.

Carrasco National Park is a Protected Area with high biodiversity, which is why it is part of the Vilcabamba-Amboró Conservation Corridor (Bolivia-Peru), it has mighty rivers that flow into the Amazon and presents ecotourism routes of great scenic beauty. In the area you can see a mountainous landscape with deep valleys and canyons, torrential rivers and waterfalls, as well as lush vegetation. The unconfirmed original population is the Tuki ethnic group.
