The Madidi National Park is part of the Amazon Rainforest area.

From the Wikipedia entry for Madidi National Park:

Madidi is a national park in the upper Amazon river basin in Bolivia. Established in 1995, it has an area of 18,958 km² (7,320 square miles), and, along with the nearby protected (though not necessarily contiguous) areas Manuripi-Heath, Apolobamba, and (across the border in Peru) the Manu Biosphere Reserve, Madidi is part of one of the largest protected areas in the world.

Ranging from the glacier-covered peaks of the high Andes Mountains to the tropical rain forests of the Tuichi River, Madidi and its neighbors are recognized as one of the planet's most biologically diverse regions. In particular, Madidi protects parts of the Bolivian Yungas and Bolivian montane dry forests ecoregions.

From the Wikipedia entry for Chalalán:

Chalalán is an ecological lodge of the Indigenous People of San José de Uchupiamonas dedicated to ethnic ecotourism. It is located in the Madidi National Park in Bolivia. The cabins are located in the vicinity of Chalalán Lake, on the south bank of the Tuichi River, about 100 km (60 miles) south west of Rurrenabaque.
