As a Bolivian I get asked many questions about when is the best time to travel to Bolivia, how far are the salt flats and when is the best time to visit them. As the Bolivian Forum is not very active, I am here to help answer some of your questions and I will ask some contributos to join the conversation
Here I have listed 2 of my top questions and my reply. I hope it helps. Please note these are my personal view:
When is the best time to visit Bolivia?
Spring time (September-November) is the best time, as it is not too cold in the salt flats and desert, with far more sunshine and very little rain.
Is Bolivia safe to travel to?
Like many countries you visit as a tourist there are risks, particularly if you don’t speak the main language (Spanish).
Compared to most South American countries, Bolivia is safe for travellers, although crime rates have increased slightly over the last five years.
But I always say that it is important to be streetwise and not to carry all your valuables with you when out and about. I always recommend making electronic copies of your passport and travel tickets accessible online and on paper.
I will be posting more soon, but feel free to ask.
