I have just arrived in Bolivia and cannot withdraw any cash from any Bolivian ATMs that I have found (I have tried them all) and some of them say something about lack of connection. However my cards (both mastercard from 2 different banks) both work when performing transactions. I have tried to ask for cash out when performing these transactions but I have only been turned down. I am at my wits end and I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced something similar and if so how did...

We have about four or five days to spend in La Paz and surrounds in January and have a few questions.
Given that it is the wet season I think our plans will have to remain fairly flexible as much of what we like to do is weather dependent. We are interested in doing some walking, and love visiting local villages. A walking tour of La Paz itself is also appealing.
What we are hoping is to connect with a local travel agency which can help us, and maybe organise a guide if we want to...

I'm planning on travelling to Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia for 3 months in the summer of 2018.

I've been told on some other forums that 3 months is a little bit of a crunch to see all three countries thoroughly. I personally don't like to plan every detail of the trip, i like to go at my pace and I don't like rushing. However, I don't ever feel the need to hang out in the same place for weeks.

Hey everyone,
Im now in La Paz, and I want to buy a car from other tourists that bought it in Colombia.

I am reading it is quite similar stuff and I do have a time constraint. My original plan was 4 day tour of Atacama and 2N/3D tour of Uyuni but reading there similar stuff so I could cut the Salt plane to just day trip?

I just read in a guesthouse in Samaipata a report of some travellers who went to PN Noel Kempff Mercado relatively cheap by going most of the way by bus and getting a guide from a place close by the park. However I am travelling by myself so I am looking for 2 or 3 other people who are interested in going there in the next 2 or 3 weeks. If anyone is interested please let me know asap.
