      Has aynone been in February at the salt flats?

      Uyuni Dec 15, 2014 at 8:55 AM

      I'm in my planning tour for SA and the best I could fit Uyuni and the the salt flat tour is beginning of February.
      I read that Jan & Feb are not the best to visit since due to weather it can get limited to the outside.
      Has anyone had any bad weather experience? how do the tour agencies usually handle the bad weather? they cancel or they just go ahead and do it?
      Thanks

    • Uyuni political unrest.

      Uyuni Sep 12, 2014 at 5:45 PM

      Hi, Has or is anyone at present in Uyuni or Rurrenabaque, Bolivia. If so we have been noticing that there is political unrest in these areas and we are booked with Amaszonas Airlines on the 2nd October from Uyuni to La PAZ, Rurrenbaque and have been monitoring 'Flight Board' the last few days and flights are being cancelled in the numbers. Does anyone have any info regarding why this would be happening. We are very concerned. The Amaszonas site is saying nothing... A quick response would be most appreciated. Thank you so much.

    • First time to Bolivia....which is the better airport to fly in to to get to Cochabamba, etc

      Bolivia Aug 11, 2014 at 1:20 PM

      I've spent the past 4 years living in Mexico, and am planning to go to Cochabamba in September to volunteer for 4 months. I'll be flying from Guadalajara, Mexico. I realize I will need to take a bus from either La Paz or Santa Cruz to get to Cocha, so can you recommend which trip might be better? The buses here in Mexico are luxurious...and from what I've read so far, they're not so great in Bolivia. Also, can you recommend which of those 2 cities might be worth spending a week in as a tourist? before heading to Cocha? Thanks!

      A friend and I are thinking of visiting Bolivia in late November - December. Is it as rainy, cloudy, humid as several guide books say? Is it a non-recommended time of year for trekking. As well, how is the weather in Sucre, LePaz at that time of year?

    • Trekking safety

      Bolivia Jun 13, 2014 at 12:08 PM

      My wife and I are going to Bolivia in July/august this year. We would like to do a 7-8 day trek, ideally at altitude. We have trekked before at altitude in Ladakh. We have looked at trekking sites on the internet and they seem quite expensive. We have also been advised to find trekking companies in La Paz, but want reassurance both about the reliability of the company and also about the safety of the area. The LP guide has lots of warnings about security.
      Can anyone please advise?
      Thanks,
      Frank

    • BUS FROM LA PAZ TO PUNO

      Bolivia May 20, 2014 at 7:09 PM

      HI, I am one of 4 seniors wishing to travel by bus from La Paz to Puno. We have heard a few bad reports and are wondering which company would be the best to travel with and is there anyone who has stayed on the same bus and not had to change buses in Copacabana. This seems to be where the problem lies with lost baggage, security etc. We would prefer a comfortable tourist bus. Your help would be most appreciated. Thank you

      Hi,
      I wonder if anyone knows anything about Fiesta De la Cruz? Is it worth of checking it out? I've heard that it is biggest in Copacabana. I wonder if it happens in La Paz too. Also does it still happen on May 3 this year?

      I also have another question about the Salt Flat Tour in Uyuni. I will be taking the bus from La Paz to Uyuni and the bus is scheduled to arrive in Uyuni at 6a.m. I wonder if there is any chance that I can get the tour that departs to Salt Flat on the same day

      Thanks so much,

      I'm landing in La Paz and going to visit some friends in Samaipata.

      I heard a lot about the altitude sickness, and wonder whether I have to stay in La Paz for a couple of days to get used to the altitude, or whether I can take a bus to Samaipata right away.

      Really hope to get some advices. Thank You :)

      Bolivia Mar 4, 2014 at 12:54 PM

      Hi, I'm from Argentina, I'm looking to visit Bolivia in April to get my head off from work a little. As I couldn't match my travel plans with other friends, I was wondering about any forums or websites I could seach for other travellers going to Bolivia as well. Anyone knows any? I registered at TravelBuddy, but due to Argentinean goverment restrictions, I'm not able to make online payment for the registration to contact other users.
      Thank you!

      Short trip to Uyuni

      Bolivia Feb 23, 2014 at 6:27 AM

      We will be in Santa Cruz for 2 weeks in June. We are doing a lot of things so we want to make our trip to Uyuni as short as possible.

      Thinking of flying to Potosi on aerocon on a Saturday, taking a bus to Uyuni early on Sunday and flying back from Uyuni to Santa Cruz on amaszonas at 3pm on Tuesday. That would give us roughly 2 days in Uyuni but 2 of the days would be half days with only one full day.

      Is that impossible? And for lodging and tours, is it something we should book ahead of time or search around when we get there? Otherwise, any suggestions?

      thanks
