Welcome to Bolivia !
Visit Bolivia, and explore elegant colonial architecture, imposing mountains (the Andes cover a third of the country’s landmass) and otherworldly desert landscapes. And with 36 distinct ethnic groups, Bolivia’s population is as diverse as its scenery. Some 62% of Bolivians hail from indigenous groups, the highest percentage in South America. This deep link with the pre-Colombian past manifests itself in the architecture, the music and the prevalence of the Quechua and Aymara languages.
Our Bolivia travel packages encompass the country’s rich pre-Columbian and colonial history. You can’t fail to be charmed by this unique, rugged, superlatively beautiful mixture of a country.
When to Visit Bolivia
May – October is high season, and an excellent time to visit Bolivia. Sunny days and minimal rainfall make for excellent conditions for outdoor-bound Bolivia tours!
November – April brings the rainy season. Avoid the lowlands, which suffer the brunt of the bad weather, but take advantage of the rain by taking a luxury Bolivia tour to Salar de Uyuni. Rainy season is the only time of year that you can witness the ethereal “mirror effect”, when the land and the sky seem to blend into one!

Uyuni Salt Flat – Salar de Uyuni
The unique landscape of the legendary Salar de Uyuni will make you question whether the salt flats are truly of this Earth. In the dry season (May – October), the dazzling whiteness as far as the eye can see offers ample opportunities to get creative with perspective to take unique and surreal photographs. In contrast, the rainy season (November – April) creates the ethereal “mirror effect”, where the sea and sky seem to become one. Our custom Bolivia travel packages can include one, two or three days in the salt flats!

Charming Potosi is the highest city in the world! It was also once the height of the economy of the Spanish Empire, after the conquistadores discovered the rich silver deposits in Cerro Rico mountain.

The architecture of the city shines as brightly as its precious metals; the colonial architecture is so exquisite that the entire city was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987!
