As one of South America’s best-kept secrets, Bolivia boasts such a broad array of attractions that travellers intrepid enough to reach this remote land are treated to a wealth of history, culture, and mind-blowing landscapes. From the wild, dream-like spaces of the Altiplano to the chaotic capital city of La Paz (flanked by not one, but four snow-capped mountain ranges), the Bolivian terrain spans everything from grassy plains to steamy jungles and colonial cities frozen in time, to some of the most remote and inhospitable landscapes on earth.
Few sites can rival the splendour of the Salar de Uyuni salt flats, where cactus encrusted islands rise surreally out of a sea of salt, or the sparkling blue waters of Lake Titicaca, dotted with beautiful islands and indigenous settlements. For the cultural visitor, Sucre and the silver mining city of Potosi offer an unparalleled view of the decadence of the Spanish crown. The thriving market at Tarabuco and infamous witches market in La Paz are bursting with jumbled charm, and both give visitors an insight in to modern day Bolivia. A magical destination, Bolivia will leave you breathless – not least because of the altitude.
We had a wonderful trip and our travel agency was awesome. Our travel specialist did an excellent job to accommodate our time and budget. We saw and did an enormous amount. The guides were excellent and very informative. It was wonderful to be picked up and guided around, whether it was to have our boarding passes printed and handed to us or to learn of the history/current affairs. Thank you so much.
