    • Do i have to stay

      La Paz Mar 16, 2014 at 1:13 PM

      Hey. I'm going to Bolivia soon and got a question.

      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 :)

      Travel buddies for April 2014?

      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?

    • To go from Villazon (border city with Argentina) to UYUNI (and return)

      Uyuni Jan 31, 2014 at 2:26 PM

      It is quite easy to see that they are a few trains (only 4 each week) just to joint both cities. Villazon to Uyuni only the Monday, Wenesday, Thursday and Sunday.
      Do you know some buses doing this trip?. Some other way to do this (perhaps to rent a car in Villazon?
      Thanks for your help.

      Salar de Uyuni

      Uyuni Jan 16, 2014 at 8:52 AM

      I will be there next month (27th). Someone from this region said me that to visit the salar and the lagunas, from Uyuni town, two days is a very good option.

      Please, do you know a good agency to do it? A lodging in Uyuni and the other side of the salar?
      You are very kind, dear VT travellers.

      Suggestions for 3 weeks in May?

      Bolivia Dec 27, 2013 at 8:31 AM

      We're considering a 3 week trip to Bolivia in May. Apart from Salar de Uyuni what should we definitely fit in the trip? We're interested in local culture (both historical and things like visiting minorities) and nature. I'd really like to see capibara's in the wild, I understand this is possible in Bolivia. Has anyone seen them?

    • how to get to Lake Titicaca

      La Paz Dec 4, 2013 at 4:16 AM

      I am arriving at Lake Titicaca at 3AM on Saturday morning and would like to visit the lake on the same day. Is it realistic to get on a bus to Copacabana right away and make it on a boat from there? Ideally, I would like to get on an over-night bus to Sucre that night. Please advise how best to plan the day - should I book a (most likely expensive) tour or can I do it on spot?

      Getting to Ambue Ari

      Santa Cruz Oct 31, 2013 at 3:08 PM

      I'm going to be working at an animal refuge, for a month, called Ambue Ari. It's located 348km from Santa Cruz and about 45 minutes from Guarayo. I've seen the sites instructions, but wondering if anyone's gone there? Or do you know any sites that would give me maps to better find the train/stations? I don't speak Spanish fluently, so just want to be better prepared.

      What is the safest city in Bolivia?

      Bolivia Oct 26, 2013 at 10:38 AM

      I am a single mum 40y with 2 daughters 11y & 16y, I am planning to move to Bolivia for 1 year from September 2014.
      Would you recommend it ?
      Is it safe for families?
      Is it easy to find a house to rent?
      Any advice would be grateful. I am not the typical backpacker, I am more of an expat style of traveling (would be carrying backpacks for convenience and flexibility). I would usually settle to one place for a year and visit the neighboring countries.
      I choose Bolivia not only because it is central but also for it cost of living.
      I don't do nightlife and live a very under the radar life in general (the only thing that will make us to be noticed is that we are black) - :)))
      Thank you in advance for your help :)

      Hi there. In december me and my boyfriend will want to do the salar tour. We will be coming from Salta and were planning to go through San pedro to do the 3 day tour from there and end up in Uyuni to go to La Paz. I've been reading up now and ***ting my pants on the stories about altitude sickness. I realize we can better start in Uyuni but that does not fit our travel schedule. Any tips on how to get acclimatized? Any ideas on alternative routes from Salta?
