Bolivia has a wonderful variety of things for visitors to see and do.

Folklore: Bolivia is the most indigenous country in the world. Its folklore is absolutely amazing. Visitors are fascinated by Andean dance, music, and costumes. In the rural areas, Quechuas, Aymaras, Guaranis, and other native peoples maintain their customes, cultures, languages, and way of life much as they did in the past.

The Andes: One of the world's most important and interesting range of mountains divides in Peru and Bolivia to form the inmense Altiplano, or high plain. At the edge of the Altiplano sits Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake on earth.

Climatic Zones: Since Bolivia is near the equator, when the high altitudes of the western half of the country give way dramatically to the eastern lowlands (Oriente) of the Amazon basin, the scenery is spectacular. Visitors can pass through several climatic zones from alpine to subtropical in a matter of hours.

Extremes: Play golf at the world's highest course, challenge the ski run at Chacaltaya (5000 m), or attempt to bicycle down the "most dangerous road in the world" from the Cumbre near La Paz, to Coroico in the Yungas. Climb a peak such as Illimani, Illiampu or Sajama, all at 6000 plus meters.

National Parks: The underdevlopment of Bolivia has ironically allowed the country to preserve its ecological wonders. National Parks such as Madidi, Noel Kempff, and Torotoro have pristine flora and fauna unmatched anywhere in the world.

History: Pre-Colombian civilizations such as Tiwanaku and the Incas have left their mark in Bolivia. Later, between 1500 and 1825, the Spanish established a colony in Alto Peru which is now modern Bolivia. The Cerro Rico was the Spanish Empire's most important silver and tin mine and during the 1600s, Potosí was the largest city in the Americas.

Study spanish in Sucre

Edit This

Hi,

I just want to share the perfect place to study Spanish that i encountered in Sucre, Bolivia. I studied with the teacher Patricia De Roo in her own private school. I had just planed to stay 2 weeks, but i enjoyed it so much that i stayed for 8 weeks studding languages before i continued. When I arrived my Spanish was almost non-existing, but when i left after 6 weeks of (hard) studies in Spanish i almost felt like i spoke it fluent. Of course it's not perfect, but it's enough for me to speak about anything with who ever i encounter. Patricia also gives Portuguese more..
