Things to Do in Bolivia
Beyond nature, for travelers in search of a truly authentic experience, there is none more unique than Bolivia. The country has held onto its traditions and culture since the Spanish occupation in the 16th century. Tours in Bolivia consist of simply walking the streets of cities like Oruro and Potosi, finding natives dressed in traditional garb, enjoying fresh produce markets in place of chain grocery stores, and seeing historic cathedrals where locals practice their faith. On Sun Island guests can enjoy exploring Lake Titicaca by land and boat and learn about the inhabitants who live on transportable reed islands. There are plenty of activities for those interested in Bolivia tours packages – even mixing with other countries, such as Brazil.
Bolivia Travel FAQ’s
Thinking about a Bolivia trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Bolivia Vacation Planning page for in-depth Bolivia travel tips.
When is the best time to visit Bolivia?
In regards to visiting Bolivia, it’s important to look at the climate and weather of the region you wish to visit. Bolivia has three distinct regions: the Altiplano (highlands) in the west, the central highlands in the south-central region just beyond the Andes, and the tropical lowlands in the east, including the Amazon Basin. Like the rest of the Amazon Rainforest, this region of Bolivia maintains a humid climate all year around. Whereas the other regions experience varying temperature and weather depending on the season.
Is it safe to travel in Bolivia?
Is Bolivia worth visiting?
How big is the Bolivia Rainforest? What countries are the Bolivia Rainforest in?
Is all of the Bolivia Rainforest the same?
No – There are different areas with different flora and fauna. The main difference is caused by the altitude. Most of the Brazilian part is at sea-level or only slightly above it, whereas in Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia, the rainforest sits on higher ground. The higher, the less dense the fauna is. Therefore, for example, if you are interested in birding, you would prefer the Peruvian Rainforest, as, due to the fauna being less dense, it is easier to spot birds. The Peruvian Amazon also offers some of the most luxurious river cruise ships such as the Aria.
The Brazilian Amazon Rainforest offers travelers a wide range of lodges and cruises. Embark on a large cruise ship such as Hurtigruten or Iberostar, or a small, intimate cruise such as the Tucano. The Ecuadorian Amazon boasts Yasuni National Park, home to millions of species of plants, birds, insects, and mammals.
What can I do in the Bolivia Rainforest?
All Amazon lodges and cruises offer jungle walks guided by local professionals to get to know the vegetation. Discover the importance of medicinal plants, spot vibrant macaws and parrots, and learn to identify the calls of rare animals. While listening to the sounds of the animals in the jungle is a common experience, actually spotting the fauna can be difficult. Travelers may consider the Pantanal wetlands for wildlife spotting, as it is less dense than the Amazon.
Piranha fishing is also very popular, but not for the meat. The piranha fish is known to be so nervous that not much meat survives. However, it makes for a great stew! Local guides can also take you to different areas where other animal species can be seen, such as the pink river dolphins or macaws. Alligator (jacare) spotting at night is one of the most fascinating activities.
