Hey everybody,

Dos anybody know if i can rent a moterbike or scooter in Santa Cruz. What would be the price?

And What about Car hire? If i find something online about cars it seems to be very expencive.

We only have 10days so it seems a bit short to go far away from Santa Cruz. We are planning to visit samaipata(ruines,waterfalls,...)/PN amboro/santa cruz/PN Lomas DeArena. Are there other things we must do in the area?

thanks for the advice

Which trek is the most interesting (scenery, wildlife etc), El Choro, Takesi, Yunga Cruz or something totally different?

Hi,

In two weeks I will be travelling solo through Peru and Bolivia. This will be my first solo trip and I am only 19 years old, so it's a bit scary, but at the same time I can't wait to go! At the moment I am reading as much as I can about the countries, so I can get the most out of the time I am there (27 days). But still I have a couple questions about my trip.

To begin with, I don't want to plan everything before I leave. I would like to have the possibility...

Planning a group trip to Santa Cruz, Rurrenbaque and Madidi national park the end of this month. Which travel apps would be useful for folks to download to their phones? We are thinking google translate, and whatsapp, skype or zoom (to make calls using Internet). Any others that you would recommend? Thank you.

Hi folks, My wife and I lived in Bolivia for two years a while ago. We are now taking our two teenage daughters there to experience what is by far one of my most favorite places in the world. I have several questions for the forum since a lot has changed since we were last there.

We have two weeks and are thinking of the following itinerary:
land in La Paz early on a Monday morning, we will immediately fly to Rurre. We will do a 2 day rain forest, possibly include the...

Is there any hiking trail around Rurre (PN Madidi)or around Trinidad what can be hiked without tour or guide? The guide books write about only tours and tours, nothing about independent hike.

Hope this requested for comments brings comments from those who have been there and those that know it well. This is the end of my 5-6 weeks which begins in BA and finishes in Bolivia after a fly day from Salvador Brazil. I'm ancient in age but young at heart - solo, frugal, hostels, buses, don't sit long any where, love the out doors, old things, and probably won't be back. Concerned that maybe I can't make the schedule because of bad transportation assumptions, etc. and...

Hi all,

Would you recommend a tourist bus or regular bus company for the journey from Copacabana to La Paz?

Also, does anyone know if these run before 1.30pm?

Thanks.

Hi,

Using guide services that I'll find once I am in La Paz -- and not over the internet -- How much should I budget in USD for:

  1. A 14-day trek the length of the Cordillera Real, and,

  2. A guided climb via the relatively non-technical route to the summit of Nevado Sajama?

Thanks very much in advance,

Le Retif

I'm looking into doing a 3 day trip of one of these. I would love to, but don't have time to do the combined as they all seem to be a minimum of 5 days.

I think I would only have 5 days, but that would include a flight on both sides. Since I'm short on time, I'm thinking I will have to book the flights and the 3 day tour (whether I choose Pampas or Jungle) and the flights on either side ahead of time, even though it seems it could be cheaper if I do it there?...

I would like to start a three day/two nights-tour to Salar de Uyuni on the 28th of June. I have been in contact with Uyuni Expeditions for this, as they have got good reviews and also offer a mid-ranged option with private rooms (basic) with bathroom and max 4 passengers per vehicle.
I travel alone and they need one more person to sign up to start the tour. So I hope someone else is interested?
It is their Auka Runas Uyuni – Uyuni Tour that I am interested in doing. The tour is $...

The only time I can be in Bolivia is in August. I've read, and heard this is not the time to go.

Would it be better to wait for another time ( although I'm a teacher and this is my only time off each year)?

My plan would be to fly in and out.

Thanks!

My trip to Bolivia and Uyuni Salt Flat is by far the most physically challenging journey that I had in my life. I had to combat jet lag, high altitude, zero humidity, polarized temperature range, lost in translation, and complete remoteness with none cell phone coverage…

Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flat. I believe the Salt Flat is on everybody’s travel bucket list.

Planning a trip to Bolivia in October 2020. I want to do a jungle lodge. Chalalan or Sadiri are my options.

I would rather do Chalalan. However I think I can use my Cpap machine at Sadiri wheras at Chalalan that might be tough. According to them.

Does anyone know about these lodges? Is chalalan so superior that I should be willing to go through 3 Poor sleep nights? I have moderate sleep apnea. If I had severe this would not even be a question.
