Since the elections 21 oct. There were many blockades. Now it is perfect to travel through the whole country. The next election is not until April 2020. Free moving. Come!! Samaipata just 2.5 hours from Santa Cruz is amazing! Dont listen too much to international news.

Dear Fellow-Adventurers,

After many years I will be coming back to Bolivia - my second home - for three weeks.

I would like to know how much I can withdraw at ATMs in Bolivia nowadays (regardless of the currency BS/US).

How much could you withdraw while being there with you VISA / Mastercard?

Someone can comment?

Thank you so much!

What is the situation now in La Paz, following the Evo Morales resignation?

October 2-19, 2019. Solo female backpacker in my 50s, mid-range budget.

Part 1
I just returned from a 2.5-week trip to Bolivia. I saw and did everything I planned, and the trip exceeded my expectations. Fortunately, I left the country the day before the presidential elections because there have been road blockades and protests ever since.

Bolivia was quite inexpensive for transportation, food, and lodging. I paid an average of $35/night for very nice hotels in the center...

Am considering a short (3-4 day) visit to La Paz and Tiwanaku. Will be coming after having spent at least a week in the highlands of Colombia so will be reasonably acclimated to the altitude.

Timeframe is near the end of January. From what I read about the weather in and near La Paz the constant cool weather is fine but it seems this is the rainiest time of the year. Am I correct that the rain tends to be light but continues for days? In other words miserable weather? We're...

Hi all,

Just wanted to share my backpacking notes from Bolivia trip from Titikaka late to La Paz, Coroico, and Rurrenebaque.
Even if this trip was done already a few years ago, it can serve as indication of conditions of the roads, guides, accommodation for someone that wants to visit these places.
