Safety in Bolivia
You should exercise the same caution as you would while traveling in any other foreign country. We recommend taking the following precautions: leave valuable jewelry at home, as well as expensive electronics. When calling a cab, have the hotel or restaurant call a radio taxi rather than hailing one on the street. Carry a money belt, use the hotel safe to hold your passport and other important documents. Be wary of ATM fraud and credit card skimming, where fraudsters copy your card information.
Protests and strikes are common in Bolivia; your guide will try to keep you updated with any relevant news if travel plans will be affected. Taxis and buses can be affected, while airlines usually are not.
All our tours include professional tour guides, and we will arrange all transportation, transfers, hotels, and tours that we know personally and recommend highly.
