With some 100 revolutions since its independence in 1825, it’s not surprising Bolivia hasn’t attracted more touristic notice. Things have been rather stable since 2005 and Bolivia’s bucket-list quotient is growing quickly. Though its infrastructure lags behind its neighbors requiring long drives, sometimes on unpaved roads, Bolivia offers plenty of natural wonders, interesting culture and 5,000 years of history, an improving food and wine scene, and colonial architecture. For adventure geeks, there’s lot to experience.
Discover the richness of Bolivia’s breathtaking scenery, combined with adventure and fine local cuisine, during your next South American vacation.

More about Bolivia
La Paz: Bolivia has two capitals: Sucre, the constitutional capital, and La Paz, the de facto capital of the country. La Paz is one of the most unique cities in the world. The city is divided into 3 sections: El Alto (at 12,000 feet over sea level) where the airport and some of the poorest neighborhoods are located; El Centro, the main part of the city and where most “Paceños” (natives) live (at roughly 10-11,000 ft over sea level) and the Zona Sur neighborhoods (roughly 9,000-8,500 ft over sea level) where the more upscale areas are located, such as Calacoto.
