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.

How Many Days to Spend in Bolivia

With five days or a week, it's possible to hit many highlights like the southern salt flats and the Bolivian Amazon.

We highly recommend David Quecana. He met us in La Paz and remained with us for the trip to Lake Titicaca and the Island of the Sun. David was knowledgeable, attentive and went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our time in his lovely country. Our tour guide from Sucre to Uyuni multi tasked he was our driver plus the guide. Wilfredo thank you for the information provided and safe driving. Ready to answer our questions and again very attentive. Finally to the highlight of our trip, Uyuni Salt Flats. Alvaro Oropeza was fantastic. He and his driver were amazing. Besides driving, the driver cooked and with help from Alvaro set up the lunch and the surprise bubbles and nibbles for the sunset. A wonderful experience. Alvaro thank you so much for making the time in Uyuni and the Eduardo Avaroa National reserve extra special and for helping us create fond memories. A big thank you also for helping us through customs crossing the border into Chile. Kimkim thank you. This is our second trip with you. Your attention to detail was excellent.
