Bolivia Travel Guide

"Bolivia is one of the most fascinating and diverse countries in South America. Its natural beauty is stunning, but it can also be complex, time consuming and frustrating."

Bolivia isn't for the faint-hearted: You could be crashing down the World's Most Dangerous Road to sultry Yungas, paragliding over lush La Paz valleys and pulling a catfish out of an Amazon River that are larger than you. You may need to have a pair of crampons, an ice axe and a helmet for climbing the Andean peaks at 19,685ft (6000m). Bolivia's ravines, rocks and rivers will test your travel skills. Bolivians love parades. Almost every month, a procession of colorfully dressed celebrants honours an important historical date. They can be heard from blocks away as the dancers and brass bands approach and surround you.

Learn about the culture and history of the country's indigenous inhabitants at museums and by observing the continual presence of traditional customs and traditions in daily life. Bolivia is home to the largest number of indigenous people in South America. Bolivia is also so biodiverse that many unique species are being discovered even now. You can step into the caves of tube-lipped nectarbats with their tongues probing in the darkness. During your escorted tours of Bolivia you will hear the cackling calls and responses of more than a dozen macaw species, including the rarest species, the bluebeard. Multihued moths and butterflies flit around your feet in the jungle. In stark altiplano, lithe alpacas are visible and vicunas are also prominent. Jaguars, pumas, and bears can be found deep in the forest.

"Great Value, Efficient, and Effective. LATC worked with me to plan precisely the experience I wanted, at the time I wanted, and at a very competitive price. I had tried three other, well-known, larger companies but could not get what I wanted."
