Bolivia Travel Update – IMPORTANT
Following the recent civil unrest in Bolivia, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has now lifted their advice against travel to the country.
The nation has undergone a period of instability with wide-scale political demonstrations and civil unrest throughout the country following disputed elections in October 2019 which culminated in the resignation of the President and senior public officials on 10 November. An interim government is now in place and fresh elections will be taking place within the next few months.
At Revealed Travel the safety of our travellers is our highest priority. We continue to monitor events closely throughout Latin America and we are in regular contact with our ground agents in each country to ensure our passengers are safe. Where necessary, we put in place alternative arrangements and liaise with our passengers over such contingency plans.
Bolivia has become one of the most exciting destinations in Latin America over the last few years. Famously land-locked and sometimes regarded as the “Tibet of the Americas”, actually more than half the country lies within the Amazon basin with an immense variety of wildlife habitats, fauna and flora. Travellers to La Paz should take the cable car for spectacular views of the city. Visitors to Potosi can take a tour into the mine of Cerro Rico which, in colonial times, provided the Spanish with unprecedented wealth and caused so much hardship to Bolivian slaves.
Top Recommendation: The Uyuni Salt Flats cover an astonishing ten thousand square kilometres. Highlights of the region include the Reserva Eduardo Avaroa National Park where Laguna Colorada is home to over 30,000 flamingoes and Isla Incahuasi, a coral island covered in giant cacti, some of them hundreds of years old.
Bolivia is often combined with Peru and Chile in a journey including Cuzco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and La Paz before travelling across the Salt Flats to the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile.
