Where to go

La Paz

La Paz is the seat of Bolivia's Government and one of the major cities in the country. In La Paz visitors find a rich cultural life, major museums, churches, markets and a lot of different activities.

La Paz has more than 1.7 million inhabitants. It's a city with clear indigenous features and yet very cosmopolitan. The city of La Paz is located at 3,600 meters above sea level.

Due to its height over sea level, the weather is pretty constant throughout the year. The days are usually sunny with pleasant temperatures and cool nights. From La Paz you can descend to the warm tropics or climb up and get to the snow.

To avoid altitude sickness or apunamiento we recommended that visitors move quietly and do not overeat while getting used to the altitude.

Potosi

Potosi, located at 3,826 meters above sea level, is one of the highest cities in the world. Near Potosi is "Cerro Rico", with a history that dates back to the years of the Spanish conquest.

Visiting Potosi you will learn part of America's history, enjoying the city’s colonial buildings and discovering the life of Cerro Rico miners.

Potosi (Potosi Imperial Villa) was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Copacabana, Titicaca Lake and Island of the Sun

Copacabana is located 150 km. from La Paz and it is on the Lake  Titicaca. It is a major pilgrimage and tourist center in Bolivia. A must for  learning about the culture and traditions of the Titicaca Lake people.

Sucre

Sucre is the constitutional and historical capital of Bolivia. Today it houses the Supreme Court and other public bodies. Known as the "White City" by the color of its colonial buildings, it's possible to say that Sucre encloses much of the history of Bolivia's and South America independence.

Salar de Uyuni

The town of Uyuni is the gateway to the spectacular Altiplano salt flats, lakes and volcanoes. The biggest attraction is the Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world.

Cochabamba

Cochabamba is the third largest city of Bolivia. It has an important industrial and agricultural development. Located at 2,570 meters from the sea level, the city of Cochabamba is considered the "Capital of the valleys".

Tiahuanaco (Tiawanaku)

Tiahuanaco is the most important archaeological site in Bolivia. Near the village bearing the same  name, you will find the archaeological ruins of pre-Inca culture known as Tiahuanaco or Tiawanaku.

Health Tips

If you´re traveling to La Paz (at 3,600 meters over sea level) or any other city of the Altiplano you should treat height with respect, especially if you fly from destinations at sea level. Although it's rare to have serious health problems, it's advisable to rest for at least one day, eat light and drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration from the dry atmosphere in the city of La Paz once you get there.

You should avoid any physical exertion, especially upon your arrival. If you suffer from heart problems or have chest pain you should consult your doctor before traveling to La Paz. Coca tea is good to prevent altitude sickness, and you can also buy melanin pills in pharmacies for prevention.

We also recommend you only consume bottled mineral water and do not drink tap water. Also, try to avoid salads and uncooked vegetables, especially foods that are sold on the street or at market stalls. 

Vaccines

The yellow fever vaccine is mandatory for entry into Bolivia. The border authorities will request your vaccination certificate.

You should also update hepatitis, typhoid, tetanus and polio vaccines. If you plan to go to tropical areas in the country, we recommend you bring anti-malaria tablets. Mosquito nets and repellents are also a good idea to help prevent many tropical diseases.

In Bolivia there are special vaccination centers. Shots for residents are free, while foreigners are required to purchase a card.
