Flamingo in Laguna Colorada, Bolivia
Landlocked Bolivia borders Peru, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and Argentina, placing it at the heart of South America. It’s a country of topographical extremes, with the dramatic Andes persisting down the western side of the country and the steamy Amazon Rainforest permeating its way in from the north.
On Bolivia holidays, visit the orange lake of Laguna Colorado, scattered with white pools and inhabited by flamingos, then clamber around the rocky shore whilst admiring the mountainous vista surrounding you. The Valley of the Moon (said to have been named by Neil Armstrong) is another phenomenal experience; it contains twisting rocky paths and incredible sites of weathered and eroded mountains.
Make sure to head to the iconic Bolivian Salt Flats to see the sky mirrored beneath your feet as hummingbirds flit past. This spot is truly spectacular after dark, when you can see the night sky reflected beneath your feet. Alternatively, jump in a canoe and paddle into the Amazon, immersing yourself in the epic natural beauty of this iconic rainforest. Then venture into Madini National Park to see exotic wildlife, cascading waterfalls and river basins.
Bolivia’s bustling cities offer delightful street food, lively nightlife and stunning architecture, not to mention the fascinating natural landscapes scattered across this diverse country. Santa Cruz features a host of indigenous culture in its museums, as well as a beautiful butterfly garden to wander through. Take a seat at one of the chic cafes here too, and treat your tastebuds with Llauchas or Tucumanas (a Bolivian-style pasty).
