Why go on a Bolivia Tour?
One of the richest countries in terms of natural resources, going on a Bolivia tour is perfect for explorers and anyone looking for some downtime and relaxation. Perhaps walk down the cities of Sucre and Potosi, and immerse yourself in the beauty of some colonial architecture and grand churches. Now, if you’re an extreme adventurer itching to try new things and is an avid lover of wildlife, you can sign up to cycle the Death Road, a 43-mile narrow path with a dangerously steep drop-off, and take a tour to the Amazon Jungle.
Bolivia is also South America’s most indigenous country, with over 60% claiming indigenous heritage - which will give travellers an enriching experience to bring home. Optimism is generally high among the locals, so protests, marches, and demonstrations are a perpetual part of the country’s gorgeous landscape. So put your high-altitude goggles on, take a deep breath, and embrace life on your upcoming Bolivia tour.
When is the best time to travel?
Since Bolivia is really high up the hemisphere, weather in Bolivia is particularly impacted by elevation. In the highlands, dry season runs from May to October – which tends to be the peak season for travel. Nighttime temperatures also tend to vary, but can drop well below freezing at the height of the dry season, which runs from June to August. Shoulder seasons, April to June and September to November, on the other hand, tend to have slightly warmer temperatures, making this season the perfect condition for travel.
In the Amazon, temperature are also typically much warmer (26s to 32s C), but frosts are not unheard of in this area, so be sure to include an extra day when making an itinerary for your Bolivia tour in case of sudden flight delays.
