About El Bolivia:

 

Bolivia received its name in honor of the Spanish liberator, Simon Bolivar and it should be on the top of the list of any culturally curious traveler.

 

It has the largest indigenous population in the continent, with over half of its inhabitants practicing traditional Andean beliefs and customs maintaining their beautiful traditions alive.

 

The main cities of this Andean country are curled up in the skirts of the big mountains or amid the hot valleys. Its awe-inspiring landscapes and its colonial cities, help tell the tale of the country's grand and rocky history.

 

Travelers to the region are greeted by the warmth of the Bolivian people, and are astonished by the varied geography of deserts, mountains, canyons, and jungles that hide countless untold mysteries.

 

Mystery and excitement await travelers in every corner of Bolivia. They might come from the Lake Titicaca and its mythical and legendary aura or from the pre Columbian remains of Tiahuanaco with their idols carved in stone.

 

Favorite spots are the Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. Once part of a prehistoric salt lake besides witnessing its unique beauty, travelers may visit a historic hotel actually built of salt, and visit Isla de Pescadores, a bizarre island surrounded by salt and studded with 20-foot tall cactus.

 

A climb up the nearby Volcano Tunupa offers a spectacular view of this expansive salt desert.

 

Potosi's legacy is tied to its silver mines, Sucre offers colorful markets and colonial buildings and La Paz is Bolivia's industrial and financial hub.
