Flying from Miami, Florida to Bolivia, I have 5 days in late June and I wish to visit the Salt Flats. What is the closest city one would recommend I travel to? Should I fly Miami – La Paz and then take a commuter flight to ____ where in Bolivia that would bring me closest to the Salt Flats? I appreciate any and all tips. I’m just starting my research. Thanks.

We want to do this trip on Aug 5, 2017.
Reports about the overnight bus are not good and the only other alternate I've found is flying to La Paz then to Sucre but the only flights I can find have a 4 hour layover between them
Does anyone know a better and alternate way or a driver in Uyuni who would take us for a reasonable amount?

Any suggestion?
Thanks

I plan to go from La Paz to Laguna Tuni, and stay the night there.
Has anyone been there without a tour? Are there local houses or huts that accept guests?

Thanks

hi everyone, where is the best place in santa cruz (names, locations, etc..) to pickup a tent (suitable for rain/humidity) + a sleeping bag (for use in Bolivia, around 1500m elevation) and for year round use. I intend to live in the tent in the nature. Thanks

Posting in Peru forum as well.
We have three weeks, starting the end of December, to spend in Peru and Bolivia (and a day or two in Santiago) and are trying to work out an itinerary that is not too rushed. We fly into Lima and out of Santiago and at this early stage are thinking we will fly straight from Lima to Cuzco and spend about a week in the area, including the Sacred Valley. We enjoy walking, history, and culture, and there seems to be plenty to do here, although weather may be...

Hi all,

I have 3 weeks off in May to go backpacking!

I am currently torn between trekking in Bolivia and hiking/scuba diving in the Honduras Islands/Costa Rica.

So - I'm leaning towards Bolivia at the moment - the current plan is to fly into Cusco, spend some time acclimatizing making my way overland by bus to La Paz.

I have traveled by bus from Cusco to La paz before but just wondered if this was better than flying directly into La Paz? I'm concerned...

I'm planning a photography trip to Bolivia and Peru in May and am looking for a Salt Flats tour which involves a night spent on, or right on the edge of, the salt flat, in order to photograph the sunset, sunrise and Milky Way over the flats.

Does anyone know any tour operators who do this, or who can offer it? I know there are the ridiculously expensive Airstream cabins, but also know that you can camp on some of the islands within the lake, or on the salt flat itself....

What is the ATM withdrawal limit in Bolivianos per transaction? Do some banks have a higher withdrawal limit than others or do they all stop at the same amount limit? In general, is it as easy and safe to use them them in Bolivia as it is in Perú?

Hallo liebe Reisende,

Wir würden gerne von La paz nach Rurrenabaque. Zeitraum ende märz anfang april. Leider fällt das noch in die Regenzeit.
Hat jemand Erfahrungen mit der Strecke und kann uns sagen, ob es gefährlich ist den Bus zu nehmen? (Das es lang und vermutlich anstängend wird haben wir gehört - es fällt uns nur schwer einzuschätzen wie gefährlich die strecke ist)

Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe!
Liebe grüße Milena

I enjoy visiting large crowded colorful markets, bonus points for local dress. E.g. something like Guamote in Ecuador.

What is my best bet in Bolivia? Tarabuco? El Alto in La Paz? La Cancha in Cochabamamba? I am crossing from Chile to Brazil, Cochabamaba and especially La Paz would be a detour. Worth it?

Thanks!

Hey all,

I'd love to do the Transcordillera Real trek with a group. Thinking an April 2017 departure for at least 14 days, prefer as long as possible. It would be great to find people with altitude and mountain experience, as this trek has lots of both! Willing to help if not. You'd need a guide and porter animals for this trek given the length. Price is pretty open depending on what you're looking for. Personally, I prefer not to rely on a guide to help me finish a trek...

Hey everyone, has anyone visited Samaipata recently and can recommend a place to stay for 1 month? I am traveling alone. The first place that came to mind is Finca la vispera. Has anyone stayed there? Other options include: Andorina. El jardin. Jaguar Azul. Los Aventureros Samaipata (these are lower priced hostels). I am looking for ​a basic room​​. ​​​Quiet, away from common areas. B​​athroom outside is OK. Also looking for organic food/drink (from local gardens, not the supermarket), happy...

There are reports that as of 28 March Amaszonas will no longer fly directly between Sucre and La Paz. Instead there will be more frequent flights between Sucre and Santa Cruz connecting with the Amaszonas "puenete aereo" (shuttle) between Santa Cruz and La Paz.

I am going into Bolivia from Puno. Can I use Peruvian Soles to change Bolivian currency at the border?

In La Paz, is it possible to change Euro into Bolivian Boliviano? Or it is as difficult as that in Peru?

I am in the process of trying to plan my itinerary to Bolivia with several 2-3 day hikes. We want to do the 3 day El Choro trek outside of La Paz, the 3 day Cordillera de los Frailes trek outside of Sucre before heading down to Uyuni for the salt flats tour. If we go by location, we would fly into La Paz, spend a few days there before starting the El Choro trek and then flying to Sucre. After a day here we would start the Cordillera de los Frailes trek. After this, we wanted to make...
