About

San Luis Grande is located about 120 miles upriver from Rurrenabaque, Bolivia. Rurrenabaque is almost due north of La Paz and it takes approximately 45 minutes to fly there. From Rurenabaque, you must travel by boat for the better part of two days to get to San Luis Grande. The villagers are ready to inaugurate their Eco-tourism venture and need to learn enough of these three languages to communicate with their clients. Our team will have a representative (me, Ernest Allen) there from about July 27 to early August to advise them on the start up of the venture. Although the language classes could be done at any time, the sooner the better for them and for the volunteer(s) it would be best if he/she/they were to be there before the beginning of the rains in November. They will have access to either Duolingo or Rosetta Stone computer courses but it would be very helpful if they were to have instructors for hands on classes at the outset of their studies.
