Bolivia Hotels


The diverse country of Bolivia is certainly a frontier to be explored with some of the most drastic geographic features in the Western Hemisphere and an indigenous population that has held onto their traditions from centuries passed. This landlocked republic contains the world's largest salt flat, the driest dessert, the largest lake in South America (also one of the highest in the world), the lofty peaks of the CordilleraReal along with a piece of the AmazonianJungle. With numerous safe and comfortableBolivia hotels throughout the country and much to see and do, it is no wonder more and more people travel Bolivia each year.  

Those who travel to Boliviashould be prepared for all types of terrain and an extensive range in temperatures; depending on the region and time of year, the weather in Bolivia can change considerably since the country varies in elevation to an extreme degree. Bolivians are largely formed from indigenous cultures, with about 60% of the populace deriving from over 30 different ethnic groups.

With temperatures known to drop below freezing after the sun sets, a quality Bolivia hotel is definitely a necessity and will help to refresh tourists for another day of exploration. Guests should also factor in an extra day or so in the itinerary to become acclimated to the elevation of Bolivia. There are Bolivia accommodations to satisfy all types of travellers, from unique Bolivia hostels made out of salt blocks in Salar de Uyuni to top-notch international Bolivia luxury hotels in La Paz, the highest capital in the world.

The main staple of the Bolivia cuisine is meat, and these people sure know how to make it right! The food tends to have a little kick, though not as spicy as Mexican food. Lunch is the most important meal and usually consists of soup, the main course and dessert. Potatoes are commonly served at every meal; rice and noodles are also customary. There is some tasty street food to be had at quite reasonable prices, but do be careful and try to eat cooked foods to save yourself some trips to the bathroom. Bottled water is commonly sold throughout the country since tourists should avoid drinking water directly from the tap when they are unaccustomed to the water supply.

Being one of the most isolated countries in South America, transportation in Bolivia can be an adventure in and of itself. Generally, international travellers arrive into Bolivia by plane and enter into one of the two international airports: El Alto (previously known at the John F. Kennedy Memorial) Airport in La Paz or the Viru-ViruInternationalAirportinSantaCruz. The ElAltoInternationalAirportis the highest airport in the world and for this reason, the flights can be more expensive since the air is thinner and more difficult for flying; therefore, the SantaCruz airport may be a more economical option. When travelling in the country, the buses and trains are great, reliable options for seeing all the sights and all the magnificentpanoramas in the middle.

For those ‘off the beaten track' travellers, Bolivia is the perfect destination; the country is chalked full of secret vistas and a culture widely unknown to the foreign world. There are also plenty of Bolivia tours to help streamline the major sights and assist in planning circuits. We could tell all day how fabulous Bolivia is, but come and make your own opinions!
