April 3. South America is a continent with plenty to offer to adventurous travelers: trekking to the ancient Machu Picchu ruins in Peru, exploring the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador, hiking the impressive mountains of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile, and so much more.
Bolivia receives just 1.2 million tourists per year, much less compared to neighboring countries in South America like Argentina (7.4 million), Brazil (6.3 million), Chile (5.4 million), Peru (5.2 million), and Colombia (4.5 million.)
- Uyuni Salt Flats: One of the top tourist attractions in Bolivia is the Uyuni salt flats. This otherworldly landscape is best viewed during the rainy season from January through March, when rainfall creates a unique reflective surface on the salt flats.
- Cycling Death Road: Cycling Bolivia’s Death Road is an activity that is only for true thrill-seekers because this experience is not for the faint of heart!
- La Paz: Bolivia’s high-altitude capital city of La Paz is vibrant, gritty, beautiful, and chaotic. It’s definitely worth spending a couple of days in the capital on your visit to Bolivia.
- Potosi Silver Mines: Potosi is a popular stop between the Uyuni salt flats and the beautiful colonial city of Sucre. Potosi’s claim to fame (or rather, infamy) is its silver mines.
- Lake Titicaca: Since Bolivia is landlocked, it doesn’t have any beaches, but Lake Titicaca is the next best place to go if you’re looking to chill out and relax after all your adventures.
