Yes of course there are several daily busses, but I don't know the details. In the rain season, it is not recommended at all. In La Paz, all the bus companies to this region are in the VILLA FATIMA suburb.

I am wondering about the same question Alex as I want to take the bus from La Paz on Thursday. On wikitravel it says that the buses DON'T leave from Villa Fatima so I don't know what to think... http://wikitravel.org/en/Rurrenabaque

We took the bus a few years ago and although it wasn't the most comfortable journey in the world, we loved it.

Here's a very shakey video I took. The journey itself was pretty dangerous, I checked the tyres of the bus before we left though and they looked ok!

I accept no responsibility for any accidents that may occur... ;-)

If you can afford to fly its only about $80 US, takes 40 mins and you will get there alive!!

I have had some terrible bus trips and some very close calls.

For a small price to pay its worth it!!

It's the wet season and that road is downright scary. I'd highly recommend a flight instead - they are cheap as ($80) and get you there in an hour.

There are breakdowns and accidents on the road ever day which at the least lead to massive delays... Not worth it, trust me!

I am also trying to get from La Paz to Rurrenabaque and back to La Paz. I have seen many people report flights as low as $80 from La Paz to Rurrenabaque but I am not seeing anything close to that price. What airlines/booking site were you guys looking at?

I am getting a fare of $97 for may on http://www.amaszonas.com. Tam flights are usually $20 or so cheaper but not as frequent. Most hotels and tour agencies in LP will book flights for you at little or no cost.
