The ultimate guide to discovering everything Bolivia has to offer, from the shimmering blue waters of Lake Titicaca to the blindingly white salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni, from the snow-capped peaks of the Andes to the verdant rain forests of the Amazon.
The introduction will help you choose where to go and what to see, inspired by dozens of stunning photos. The Things Not to Miss section runs through all the must-sees, while the Itineraries guide you around the country’s highlights. Navigation through the book and on the ground is aided by clear color maps with every chapter. Each map is keyed with all the accommodation, eating and drinking options, nightlife venues, and shops that are reviewed in detail in the Listings chapters.
The country is incredibly rich in culture and history, boasting ancient pre-Inca ruins, fascinating witches’ markets, vibrant carnivals, and some of South America’s finest colonial architecture. There are also plenty of activities for thrill seekers, including cycling down the world’s most dangerous road, exploring legendary silver mines, swimming with pink river dolphins, and retracing the footsteps of Che Guevara.
