Bolivia has one of the largest indigenous populations in South America and is the ideal destination to experience Andean cultures. Being one of the least explored countries of the continent; it is an authentic country that differs itself from other South American destinations in many ways. Bolivia’s colorful indigenous culture and the stunning natural sites are the perfect ingredients for an unforgettable travel experience.
The Amazon Rainforest of Bolivia is less visited than the Peruvian or Ecuadorian jungle, because of which it remained a very pristine destination. In Madidi National Park, the most accessible jungle destination of the country, your clients can enjoy a wide variety of wildlife and beautiful nature.
From the small town of Rurrenabaque, it is possible to head deep into the primary rainforest or to explore the pre-Amazonian wetlands, where the vegetation is less thick and wildlife, such as caimans and monkeys, can be spotted more easily.
The area located east from the Andes Mountains is characterized by green hills, forests, canyons and a mild to tropical climate. This region is called Los Llanos, or ‘the plains’ in English.
In Torotoro National Park, travelers will be fascinated by magnificent canyon landscapes, and with some luck they can spot macaws, parakeets and other colorful birds.
On top of this, the valleys are a wonderful place for wine tasting and rafting.
Most of Bolivia’s highlights are located in its Andean region, which can be divided in the Northern and Southern Andes. The northern area is a cultural paradise. Here, travelers can visit Lake Titicaca, with its handmade islands and traditional communities, and La Paz, where many interesting museums are situated.
However, this region offers much more than culture; this is also a great destination for tourists interested in adventure and nature. Biking on Death Road and the three-day El Choro Trek are only two of the unique experiences your clients can live in the Northern Andes of Bolivia.
The southern part of the Andes includes the Uyuni Salt Flats; the only place on earth that is visible from the moon to the naked eye. The largest salt flats in the world gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy breathtaking landscapes and make amazing photos.
Further northeast, in the mines of Potosi, you can learn more about the economic and cultural importance of mining for Bolivia. Even though most people think La Paz is the country’s capital, it actually shares its role with Sucre. This wonderful city is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a great place to wander around and admire the white colonial buildings.
