Hi all,

Would you recommend a tourist bus or regular bus company for the journey from Copacabana to La Paz?

Also, does anyone know if these run before 1.30pm?

Using guide services that I'll find once I am in La Paz -- and not over the internet -- How much should I budget in USD for:

  1. A 14-day trek the length of the Cordillera Real, and,

  2. A guided climb via the relatively non-technical route to the summit of Nevado Sajama?

Thanks very much in advance,

Le Retif

I'm looking into doing a 3 day trip of one of these. I would love to, but don't have time to do the combined as they all seem to be a minimum of 5 days.

I think I would only have 5 days, but that would include a flight on both sides. Since I'm short on time, I'm thinking I will have to book the flights and the 3 day tour (whether I choose Pampas or Jungle) and the flights on either side ahead of time, even though it seems it could be cheaper if I do it there?...

I would like to start a three day/two nights-tour to Salar de Uyuni on the 28th of June. I have been in contact with Uyuni Expeditions for this, as they have got good reviews and also offer a mid-ranged option with private rooms (basic) with bathroom and max 4 passengers per vehicle.
I travel alone and they need one more person to sign up to start the tour. So I hope someone else is interested?
It is their Auka Runas Uyuni – Uyuni Tour that I am interested in doing. The tour is $...

The only time I can be in Bolivia is in August. I've read, and heard this is not the time to go.

Would it be better to wait for another time ( although I'm a teacher and this is my only time off each year)?

My plan would be to fly in and out.

My trip to Bolivia and Uyuni Salt Flat is by far the most physically challenging journey that I had in my life. I had to combat jet lag, high altitude, zero humidity, polarized temperature range, lost in translation, and complete remoteness with none cell phone coverage…

Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flat. I believe the Salt Flat is on everybody’s travel bucket list.

Planning a trip to Bolivia in October 2020. I want to do a jungle lodge. Chalalan or Sadiri are my options.

I would rather do Chalalan. However I think I can use my Cpap machine at Sadiri wheras at Chalalan that might be tough. According to them.

Does anyone know about these lodges? Is chalalan so superior that I should be willing to go through 3 Poor sleep nights? I have moderate sleep apnea. If I had severe this would not even be a question.
