Your Bolivia vacation

Bolivia can lay claim to many things: It's has one of the highest capital cities in the world; one of the highest and most beautiful lakes in the world and has lively festivals year-round. Bolivia is a land-locked nation that borders both the Andes Mountains and the Amazon Basin, giving it a varied climate with access to many activities during travel to Bolivia.

Best time to take a vacation to Bolivia

  • The weather in Bolivia varies from the more temperate, almost tropical, conditions in the east to the drier, more polar, conditions in the west. The Bolivian summer runs from November through March and includes much of the rainy season. Winter, running from April through October, tends to be much drier and colder. Average summer temperatures are often around 86 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter temperatures frequently reach freezing. Snowfall is not uncommon during the winter months in mountains in the western part of the country. Early March may be an ideal time for a visit, as the daytime weather is warm, evenings are cool, and the annual Carnaval de Oruro, a days-long folklore festival, is hosted in Cochabamba. Whatever time of year you choose to visit Bolivia, Orbitz.com can help you plan your travel and save.

Top Bolivia attractions

  • LaPaz, Bolivia

    High times in La Paz

    At nearly 12,000 feet above sea level, La Paz is arguably one of the highest capital cities in the world. As the main point of entry for Bolivia travel, La Paz, which is towered over by the triple-peaked, snow-capped Illimani mountain, is Bolivia's largest city. Travel to Bolivia should include time here to explore the numerous museums and historic landmarks, including the Cathedral de San Francisco, the National Art Museum, the Government Palace, hiking at Muela del Diablo (Devil's Tooth) and Calle Jaén, a preserved Colonial-era street that houses 10 museums. Nearby, visitors can take day-trips to see the thousands-of-years-old ruins at Tiahuanacu.

Bolivia history and culture

  • Bolivia culture

    Travel to Bolivia to explore its culture

    Make the most of your Bolivia travel by visiting during the Carnaval de Oruro. This eight-day celebration leads up to Ash Wednesday and celebrates through grandiose parades, costumed dances, concerts and plays. Thousands of people descend upon the city to help mark the miracle that allegedly took place in 1789, when a mural of the Virgin Mary supposedly appeared. Oruro is the folklore capital of the country, so plan your Bolivia vacation with a visit here. Take an excursion to Cochabamba to explore La Cancha, South America's largest open-air market, then ascend San Pedro Hill and visit the 109-foot-tall statue of Cristo de la Concordia. Those interested in models and the fashion industry should plan Bolivia travel to the city of Santa Cruz.
