Bolivia Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 62%, Bolivia is without a doubt the most indigenous of all the South American countries, with more than half of the population claiming some type of indigenous heritage. This makes it one of the most culturally interesting places to visit on the entire continent, where contact with the native Bolivian is something you don't have to search for. Visitors to Bolivia have the chance to experience a diversity of environments that each come with their own range of activities. No trip could ever be complete without a visit to the shores of Lake Titicaca where locals still live in traditional floating villages. Then at the other end of the spectrum, there are the enormous salt deserts of Uyuni where the stars seem to shine with an added brilliance that casts the landscape into a shimmering glow. But not to be outdone, you can even go "subterranean" and visit the Cooperative Mines, where you can experience first-hand how Bolivia taps into its abundant mineral wealth. After everything you see and do in this amazing country, you'll wonder why you didn't visit earlier?
