A country of poor people, but also a country of high mountains, cultural heritage, rich natural resources and authentic tourist offer.

Bolivia is located in the western part of South America and has no access to the sea. Its western part consists of the Andes, and the eastern lowland part belongs to the Amazon basin covered with rainforests. Although it is the poorest and least developed country in South America, it is one of the richest in terms of natural resources.

Incomparable beauty is reflected in its picturesque culture, colonial cities such as Sucre and Potosi and the whispers of ancient civilizations. That is exactly what attracts visitors, and with good reason.

Sucre is the capital and most beautiful city of Bolivia. The old town is under UNESCO protection. With a choice of great accommodation, a multitude of churches and museums, and much to see and do in the area, it’s no surprise that visitors end up staying much longer in Sucre than they planned.

The conquistadors never found Eldorado, the legendary city of gold, but they got Potosi and Cerro Rico, a silver-enriched hill called “rich hill“. The city was founded in 1545 when ore was discovered. During the years of "silver fever", it became the largest and richest city in South America. Then, when the silver ore more or less dried up, poverty ensued. Potosi has large churches, ornate colonial architecture and very friendly inhabitants, and it is a real pleasure to visit this city.

Lake Titicaca is located at 3,821 m above sea level and is the highest lake in the world where commercial navigation is possible, and it is also the largest lake in South America. Lake Titicaca shines with its distinctive navy blue color, and its islands and gentle shores form an agricultural paradise. The dilapidated cathedrals, the hilly valleys and the highest mountains of Bolivia in the background, together make each individual a professional photographer.

Summer (November to April) is the rainy time of the year, when land traffic is difficult, and in some areas it can be completely disabled. The most popular time of the year to tour the whole country is during the winter (from May to October) with its dry and clear days. The high season lasts from the end of June to the beginning of September, and August is the most popular month. Most of Bolivia's major festivals take place during these months.

If you are looking for an authentic experience, away from tourist destinations, Bolivia is the perfect choice for you.
