Introducing Bolivia

Bolivia is home to some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world that are just being discovered by modern science, and its culture is just as vibrant as its jungles and plains.

When is the best time to visit?
The best time to visit Bolivia is during their winter months (June - August), when you may experience colder weather in the higher elevations and deserts, but the clearer skies will be less likely to interrupt your travel plans.

Where to go in Bolivia?
Home to the largest percentage of indigenous people in South America, Bolivia is known for its constant parades and celebrations. Check out the ancient ruins of Pumapunku, the world’s largest salt flat at Salar de Uyuni, and the verdant La Paz valleys.

How many days do I need?
Many travelers might feel like one week in Bolivia is too little, but it has been done. Two weeks and up is a normal amount of time to spend in this incredible country.

4x4 on the Salar de Uyuni salt flat
Best Time of Year to Visit Bolivia

From the Amazon jungle to soaring Andean peaks, Bolivia spans a vast range of elevation and a variety of microclimates and landscapes. Generally speaking, altitude and topography determine variations in local climates, but nationwide a clear-cut distinction between the "winter" dry season and "summer" wet season makes any decision on when to visit fairly simple. Winter brings sapphire skies and cooler temperatures, while in summer, wildflowers bloom, yet fog, clouds, and flooding are common.

Cycle the North Yungas Road
How Many Days to Spend in Bolivia

To properly experience Bolivia's diverse ecosystems and rich culture, plan on at least 10 days. In that time, you can visit different regions and tour cities and villages. With five days or a week, it's possible to hit many highlights like the southern salt flats and the Bolivian Amazon. And if you can spare two weeks, go big with an in-depth exploration of indigenous villages and geological sites or a trekking adventure around highland volcanoes and high-altitude lakes.

2 Weeks in Bolivia

I spent a total of two weeks traveling in Bolivia booked through kimkim and its local partner. Everything was very well organized, all of my guides and drivers were on time and professional. Prior to my arrival a WhatsApp group was set up in case I needed to contact the operator, which was reassuring. This was a pretty ambitious trip with lots of internal flights, many different hotels, and a full program, and everything worked according to plan.

I did the 3 day tour of Uyuni. Milenka was a great travel agent and arranged everything so there was nothing I needed to do but enjoy my trip. Lucio was a great guide. My only suggestion, is to consider booking “luxury” accommodations over basic. The hotels were chilly and only one of the two hotels had hot water…so basic has a different meaning in Bolivia. That said, both were clean, and comfortable aside from being cold! The night bus was surprisingly nice and everyone I interacted with... read more

It goes without saying that the scenery was spectacular and the wildlife and ecology of Bolivia were breathtaking.
