José Ballivián is a province of the Beni Department in northern Bolivia. It is named for José Ballivián, a general and former president of Bolivia who lived from 1805 until 1852. The province has a north-south extent. To the west the province is bounded by the Beni River (with the La Paz Department on the west (left) bank), to the east it borders on the Yacuma Province of the Beni Department.
But the name of the José Ballivián Province is probably[weasel words] only known by very few of the tourists visiting the area, and very likely[weasel words] the same applies to the knowledge that crossing the Beni River means going from the Beni Department to the La Paz Department of Bolivia.
