We will visit the salt flats last days of august en will continue to La Paz.
Is it necessary to book the nightbus beforehand? And if yes, how long before? Anybody experience with that in this time of the year?

Hello. I'm looking for others who might be interested in doing a 5 night 6 day hike and climb out of La Paz from around the 23 July. There are various operators/guides that run a trip out to Condoriri (Laguna Tuni) then through to Huayna Potosí, seeing and experiencing some amazing landscapes. Getting an extra couple of enthusiasts along will help to keep individual costs down. It's possible the 5 nights / 6 days could be reduced to 4 / 5. Some prior acclimatisation will be...

Does anyone have the email adress where I can book my TAM flights directly to TAM?
They seem not to have any possibility to book online.

I heard their rates from La PAz to Rurrenabaque are very competative compared to Amaszonas.

Hi everybody,

I am going with two friends to Bolivia August 1 to August 11.

Being the first time we travel to Bolivia, we plan to go to Uyuni and then from there do the tour of the area.
Can you advice any private tour services from Uyuni for the trip? How many days are needed? 4 are sufficient?

Any tip / past experience would be super-appreciated?

Thank you

I understand that you can better go by plane than by bus from Samaipata/Santa Cruz to Sucre.
Can you trust Amaszons by buying a ticket in advance?
I read somewhere that they often cancel flights without any notice.

Hi All. I'm arriving in La Paz (airport) around noon and I have a couple of hours before the evening bus to Uyuni. Any suggestions what I should do in my free time? Does it make sense to look for some luggage storage and go sightseeing? Or would it be better to stay in some hostel and take a rest before the trip?

What is the easier way: going back to Santa Cruz and going by plane or going by bus?
With the new airport 25 km away from Sucre it will take some time to go to Sucre!

Can anyone recommend a safe, secure g/h in La Paz, Sucre and Potosi? Hoping to get a double room under $15 - is that realistic? We'll be heading there for 3 weeks next month.

Hi there,
I'm currently planning a trip to Bolivia and I'm having a hard time figuring out a couple of routes:
1. Uyuni to Tarija
2. Sucre to Samaipata
What is the best way to get from one city (mentioned above) to another? I don't mind flying. Whatever is the most convenient. Thanks!

Dear All,
I am arranging a Perù+Bolivia trip for next August. I am going to land in Lima and for the first week I would like to have a bolivian tour that include Salar de Uyuni and Laguna Colorada. I have 7 days to do it.
I thought to take a flight for La Paz and join a tour from there or eventually take a bus from there to reach other destination (like Uyuni) from which to start the tour.
Do someone have a suggestion for a reliable tour operator that do this kind of tour or...

I'm heading to La Paz in a month. Due to my circumstances, I will have either Chilean pesos or $US with me. I presume there are various Casa de Cambios across La Paz. My question is whether they give good value for Chilean pesos, or would it be best to stick to $US. Do the local hiking companies accept $US as an option for payment?

We are a couple, 55 - 60, looking for two people to join us for a Salt Flats 3 Days/2 Nights tour staying at the Tayka hotels. Our starting city is Uyuni and finishing in San Pedro de Atacama. Our intention is to leave Uyuni on 15 November.
If I have replies, we can decide on the tour company, and meet up in Uyuni.

I'm planning to spend some time around Nevado Sajama towards the end of July, after spending several days in the vicinity of La Paz.

I wish to continue travelling through to Arica in Chile. What are some of the recommended options for doing this?

Is it easy to jump on one of the buses heading through from La Paz or pay a truck driver for a lift who's going through? How often are the buses, and what time do they generally come through? How long would...

The road blocks continue. According to news reports this morning, discussions between Government and representatives of the truck operators broke down last night and it seems likely that blockades will spread to the access roads to other cities.
TAM (transportes Aereos Militares) has announced that it will start "solidarity flights" (at half price) today to Cochabamba, Sucre and...

Those who travel without cash should read the Bolivia Forum about the problems tourists are having right now due to the nationwaide bus strike. People are stuck in towns with ATMs that don't accept foreign credit cards and need cash to buy food, etc.

Hey All

Apparently a nationwide bus strike started today (May 30th) so I thought I'd start this thread for information.

We are in Sucre. We heard the airport road is blocked so you have to walk (1 hour).

Information is scarce so share what you can here!

Questions we have:

  • Local buses are running in town - can they still get to places out of town (Dinosaur Park, 7 Waterfalls etc)?
  • Anyone heard anything on the length of the strike...

Hey there! So my girlfriend and I are thinking of doing the El Choro trail round La Paz next week. We're thinking of taking a cab to the trail head this Tuesday. It would be awesome to have a hiking buddy to have around. We can speak some Spanish but not a word of Aymara. ;) Let me know if you would be interested in joining us!
