Internal Flights

I am planning a family trip for next summer and I am having a hard time making sense of the online information regarding internal flights within Bolivia. I'm looking specifically into flying between La Paz and Potosi R/T. Based upon what I see , there are no flights in or out of Potosi, but flights do go between La Paz and Sucre, and the Sucre to Potosi part can be done by bus/taxi. I've done the entire bus ride between La Paz and Potosi years ago by myself and it's not a R/T that I want to subject my family to. Am I right on the La Paz-Sucre flight with a bus/taxi to Potosi arrangement? Does anyone have any suggestion regarding the best website for booking internal flights?

Within Bolivia we fly with BOA. Here's a link:


As far as I know there are no direct flights to Potosi so most people take the bus or taxi. There are plenty of taxi drivers at the airport in Sucre willing to drive people to Potosi. I'm not sure what they charge.

I heard the Potosi airport is very high and surrounded by mountains, making it unpopular with pilots.....

The best website is http://www.amaszonas.com . Whether they are the best planes is debatable! I am pretty sure there are no direct flights to Potosi but you could also try Tam. We did the bus trip from Sucre to Tupiza via Potosi earlier this year and it was fine the road is now tarmac the whole way. The journey to Tupiza took 8 hours and, as I recall we stopped fro a toilet break in Potosi after around 4 hours.
