Bolivia

Even though Bolivia is one of the smallest countries in South America, it has a diversity of climate and geography to rival its biggest neighbour, Brazil. In the dizzying heights of the Altiplano, you’ll find the brilliant white plains of the Uyuni Salt Flats, the crystal clear waters of Lake Titicaca and the towering peaks of the Cordillera Real.

Descending from La Paz, you’ll travel through lush cloud forest before arriving in the steaming regions of the pampas and Amazon Basin, teeming with wildlife. Colonial gems like Sucre and Potosi dot the countries interior, while the southern part of the country pays homage to the Wild West with cacti, canyons and Butch Cassidy legends.

Bolivia is also South America’s most indigenous nation; the Quechua and Aymara peoples make up more than half the country’s population and the brightly coloured, multi-layered skirts and bowler hats of Indian women still far outstrip more modern dress, even in the country’s capital.

When to go to Bolivia?

–  The dry season runs from April to October and temperatures can be well below zero at night in the desert.
–   Travel during the wet season (November to March) when the Uyuni Salt Flats become the largest natural mirror in the world, creating stunning optical illusions.

Our Expert’s Choice:

–  Take a city tour of La Paz with a local shoeshine for an authentic experience that helps support these young workers.
–   Discover the incredible diversity of Madidi National Park with a stay at community-owned Chalalan Ecolodge.
–   Explore the pretty whitewashed colonial centre of Sucre and visit nearby Tarabuco market.
