Reasons to Visit
Without a doubt one of the most stunning areas of South America- surreal rock formations, the vast salt flats, jewel coloured lakes, and you can have it almost to yourself!
Although not as famous as neighbouring Peru, Bolivia has some interesting Inca and pre-Inca ruins. Sucre is a must to visit for the beautiful white washed architecture, and Potosi to learn about Bolivia's colourful history.
Indigenous people are in the majority in Bolivia, unlike in many other countries, so it's a good place to learn more about traditional cultures and you will see many people dressed in traditional clothing.
A short flight from La Paz will take you into the steamy Amazon basin to spot monkeys, birds, sloth and even pink river dolphin, and also to interact with the local communities.
Spanning both Peru and Bolivia, Lake Titicaca is one of the continent's most iconic locations, believed to be the birthplace of the Incas. Enjoy the myths, views, sunsets and traditional cultures from the relaxed Sun Island.
Bolivia is a great place to buy traditional handicrafts. Textiles in Sucre are particularly good or browse the stalls of the Witches' Market in La Paz for souvenirs ranging from jewellery to a llama foetus!
Bolivia remains one of the lesser visited countries in South America, and tourism infrastructure is a lot more limited than in neighbouring countries, but this only adds to the appeal for an authentic taster of Latin America.
