Bolivia is roughly heart-shaped and sits at the centre of the continent, being the only country with no access to the coast. Home to the Aymara people, Bolivia retains a strong indigenous identity. Its culture and traditions are an important reason to visit this colourful and fascinating country. Enjoy exploring the natural beauty of Bolivia from the deep blue tranquil waters of Lake Titicaca to the stunning salt flats of Uyuni which stretch as far as the eye can see.
Relax in the resort-like town of Copacabana on the shores of the deep-blue Lake Titicaca, before taking a boat trip to Sun Island, rich in myth and tradition. The views are 24 hours on the lake as dawn, daylight, dusk and the starry night sky offer equally spectacular vistas.
Set in a valley surrounded by high Andean peaks, the city of La Paz is the living heart of Bolivia. The traditional and the modern live side by side as salteñas are sold by women in traditional dress on the doorsteps of office tower blocks. Visit the intriguing witches market for some unusual souvenirs, and if you have a spare day, make a trip out to the nearby ruins of Tiwanaku.
Visit the unique landscape of the Uyuni salt flats, and stay the night in a hotel made entirely of salt. The glaring white expanse of salt stretches as far as the eye can see, its purity broken only by several small islands rising from the sea of salt, covered with giant cacti. This place has to be seen to be believed!
