TRAVEL GUIDE TO BOLIVIA
This travel guide to Bolivia provides information about travel routes, roadtrips and other travel tips for Bolivia.
When planning our own trip to South America we asked a friend who had been there as well what is the most beautiful country of the continent. After thinking for a while he said... Bolivia. Until then it had not occurred to us to go there, but... based on his advise, we did, and indeed he was right. Bolivia... is beautiful, pure, amazing.
Bolivia, which has lost almost half of its original territory in wars with surrounding countries suffered intensely in its recent history. It has a reputation for frequent social unrests and roadblocks, and still therefore is neglected by most travelers. But that is a big mistake to make. When visiting South America this is a country that you simply cannot skip. With half of the country situated on the Altiplano (high flat +-3800 meters), and the other half stretching out into the deepest center of the Amazon, you can imagine that this country possesses some of the most spectacular and untouched landscapes on the planet, and indeed it does. Add a mighty traditional folklore and the beautiful spirit off the Bolivian people and you will realise that this is the jewel of Latin America!! The greatest highlights are the incredible Salar de Uyuni in the southwest and the mystic Lake Titica on the border with Peru, which is one of the highest lakes on earth. But there is much more natural beauty to see.

Most people come to Bolivia for around 2 to 4 weeks. Although you could rush it in 2 weeks, personally we believe that 3 weeks is the absolute minimum.
When coming to Bolivia keep in mind that you need to acclimatize to the altitude. If you do not acclimatize you may get altitude sickness. The capital La Paz is situated at 3800 meters so you have to take some days to rest and acclimatize at the beginning of your stay. So take like 3 days to get used to the altitude, you could use this time efficiently to book some excursions in advance.
