"Bolivia feels less developed, wilder, even more dramatic than its neighbours"

Things To Do In Bolivia

  • Look out over the lights of La Paz at dusk from a rooftop bar
  • Experience the spectacular Uyuni Salt Flats
  • See the quieter Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca
  • Spend time exploring the colonial city of Sucre
  • Take on the Bolivian Amazon from Yungas

Amanda Sweeney, one of our much-travelled South America experts, explains why Bolivia is her favourite country.

“When I first went to Bolivia over a decade ago, I was bowled over. The whole of South America is awash with spectacular scenery, but for me it is in Bolivia that it is at its most memorable. Bolivia is much less developed than other South American countries, and the accommodation, though comfortable, is nothing to write home about. However, the dramatic landscapes really take your breath away, and so much is true wilderness. Luxury whilst on holiday in Bolivia means the luxury of being the only people for miles and miles.

Whether Lake Titicaca is best viewed from the Bolivian or Peruvian side is an ongoing debate. But if you want vast, sweeping views of the electric blue waters untouched by any kind of development, then Bolivia wins hands down!

Another real highlight for me was visiting the Urus Iruitos community on the floating reed islands. Our local agent provides support for these communities, so that they can continue their traditional lifestyle, much as they’ve done for thousands of years.

But my favourite place in Bolivia has to be the Salar de Uyuni salt flats. They’re dazzling, beautiful and eerie all at the same time - and you can even see the curvature of the earth. The salt hotel, Luna Salada, is a lot of fun: everything, including the furniture, is made from salt.”
