Bolivia provides several budget-friendly options for those set out to explore something new and mostly unseen. The small, landlocked country, surrounded by some of the top tourist destinations in South America, like Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, is often overlooked by travellers. From the high peaks of the Andes, tangled and dense jungles of the Amazon, to the vast salt flats, Bolivia has a little bit of everything.

What to do:
Bolivia is a great option for every adventure seeker. It offers fun-filled festivals, like Oruro Carnaval. In La Paz you can go to the Cholita wrestling match at the Ceja de El Alto, featuring Bolivian women battling it out in traditional petticoats and braids.

Take a trip into the Amazon jungle to see wildlife galore, go jaguar watching at Kaa Iya National Park or sandboarding in Lomas de Arena. The best way to experience the national parks is through one of the many ecological and cultural tours providing an authentic and safe jungle experience. In the Noel Kempff Mercado National Park you can go birdwatching in the pristine rainforest, climb the red cliffs of Huanchaca Plateau or take a canoe trip along the Paraguá River.

Hike along the shore of Lake Titicaca , go kayaking, paddle-boating or take a boat trip to one of the islands in the middle of the lake. Take a dip in the hot thermal springs of Aguas Calientes.

Go to Cal Orcko – the largest site of dinosaur footprints ever found, located a 20-minute ride from the colonial city of Sucre.

Enjoy the drastic landscape of the Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon), situated about 10 km (6.2 mi) from La Paz in the small town of Mallasa. There are walking trails and tours through the valley. You can also explore the Valle de las Animas (Valley of the Souls) with its needle-like rock formations.

Visit Laguna Colorada, a fiery red lake with thousands of pink flamingos, or go to Laguna Verde, a blue-green salt lake found at the foot of the volcano Licancabur.

Visit Santa Cruz, located in the tropical region of the country. The most prosperous city in the entire country is home to Bolivia’s best nightlife and international cuisine.
