Backpacking in Bolivia on a Gap Year

Countries  »  Bolivia

Bolivia feels like 'real' South America. Bolivians are largely poor but resilient, and proudly maintain their traditions. About half the population are descended from indigenous Aymaran and Quechuan ancestry, and may only speak partial Spanish let alone English so positive gestures, expressions and body language will get you far.

Bolivia has some amazing experiences to offer, from drinking coca tea, touring the iconic Salt Flats and cycling the 'Death Road' outside capital La Paz, to the colonial delights of Sucre, Lake Titicaca and Isla del Sol.
