Our tourist maps
Discovering Bolivia could begin with a visit to, La paz, the administrative capital where modern architecture coexists with centuries old monuments: colonial churches (such as the San Francisco Cathedral), the art museum, Plaza Murillo and the surprising Mirador Killi Killi are all unmissable sights. Your days in La Paz and the surrounding area will be filled with memories. Then head out for an excursion to Lake Titicaca and the Isla del Sol before hiking through one of the southern national parks. Strolling through the streets of Tarija, Potosi and Villa de Cochabamba is like stepping back in time to the colonial era. And don't miss the breathtaking scenery of Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flats in the world or the northern parks and reserves in the heart of the Amazon.
Bolivia perfectly captures everything we imagine about South America: from colourful La Paz surrounded by dazzling mountains, to the mythical Amazon and its countless rivers. Bolivia has retained traces of its history laden past where Jesuit missions can be found side by side with traditional villages. The wide open spaces, eerie landscapes, a deeply rooted culture and the friendly people make Bolivia a fulfilling destination. If you are travelling as a family, taking a romantic break or looking for adventure, Bolivia has something for every traveller.
