Bolivia, one of only two landlocked countries in South America, is an incredibly diverse country which can be geographically divided into three main areas: the high Andean plateau, the valleys and the region of Santa Cruz, each offering their own unique characteristics and a plethora of interesting sites.
Enjoy the big city bustle of La Paz, Bolivia’s capital city – as well as the highest capital in the world – full of museums, modern and comfortable hotels, and a vibrant nightlife. Other important cities include Sucre, nestled in a valley in the Andes, a quiet and culturally rich city which has retained much of its colonial architecture, and Cochabamba, also known as “the garden city”, renowned for its traditional folklore and fine wines.
If you'd rather escape into nature, Boliva has some of the most stunning natural sites in the world. The famous Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat (and where they say earth and sky meet), is a staggeringly extensive 4,054 square miles, and a truly spectacular sight to behold. Enjoy Bolivia’s rugged nature in the Amazon Basin, where you can take scenic wildlife tours and river boat trips. Lake Titicaca is also a popular tourist destination, due to its outstanding natural beauty and links to the origins of the Inca civilization.
Bolivia is truly a treasure trove of intriguing places and one-of-a-kind sights. From the natural grandeur of its vast lands to its deep indigenous roots, Bolivia prides itself on its picturesque beauty and multiculturalism. Let Bolivia inspire you as you learn Spanish with don Quijote.
