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.

Bolivia in August: Travel Tips, Weather, and More

It's still peak season in August in Bolivia, with plenty of blue skies and dry days that are ideal for tackling outdoor pursuits all over the country—from hikes in the footsteps of Incas in the Andes to jungle tours by boat in the Amazon. In the latter half of the month, temperatures begin to slowly creep up in the rainforest and the savanna, but it’s still nice and cool on the altiplano. The best digs are snapped up quickly during this popular month.

Bolivia in September: Travel Tips, Weather, and More

The onset of spring in September marks the end of the peak season rush in Bolivia, so in many ways this is a fantastic month to visit, with largely dry days, warm weather and far fewer crowds. As the country edges into the less busy shoulder season, you should be able to snag some deals on tours and accommodation. While rising temperatures have taken the bitter edge off nights on the altiplano, this is the hottest time of year in the Amazon.

Bolivia in October: Travel Tips, Weather, and More

October is the height of spring in Bolivia. If you want to sidestep the crowds of winter, this is a fantastic time to visit, as there is still plenty of dry, sunny weather everywhere from the depths of the Amazon to the heights of the Andes. Rains are slowly but steadily increasing, so come prepared for the odd downpour. Shoulder-season benefits are many, especially when it comes to scoring deals on tours, outdoor activities, and accommodation. And the drop in visitor numbers is a blessing at big-hitters like the Salar de Uyuni and Lake Titicaca.
