Hotels in BoliviaEdit This
Bolivia hotels are not known around the world for their luxury. While there is certainly a wide array of high-end and multi-star hotels to be found for the international tourist, the majority of accommodations in this small, landlocked South American country are characteristic of any developing nation. For this reason, Bolivia is not the glamorous tourist destination that many people hope for. Hotels are affordable but often run down. If this authentic experience is enticing to you, read on for more information about some of the top hotels in this country.
La Paz is the prime destination for many tourists in Bolivia. This capital city is full of interesting and authentic cultural experiences. When staying at La Paz, many recommend the cheap and high quality destination of the hostel known as Arty's Guesthouse. Run by an ex-pat, this house features a wide array of amenities that are found in higher quality hotels throughout the country. It's an affordable destination, and a good place to meet up with other travelers. It is appropriate for young travelers and older visitors alike, although most families will want to avoid this hostel.
The Madidi National Park is an exciting and beautiful glimpse into the Amazon jungle in Bolivia, and the Chalalan Ecolodge puts you right in the heart of the river basin to explore all of the various wildlife and plant life to be found in this biologically diverse area. The Ecolodge is not as inexpensive as some other hotels in the area, but it's full of environmentally friendly and luxury-level amenities.
Salt Hotel Bolivia
The Salar de Uyuni is one of the most exciting, yet desolate places in all of Bolivia--and the rest of the world, for that matter. This area is the largest salt flat on earth, measuring over 4,000 square miles in total. The land is flat and barren of all natural life. It's very interesting and a peaceful place to relax, according to many travelers. There is a variety of tourist destinations on the salt flats, most of which are made up entirely of salt blocks. The Salt Hotel Bolivia is a luxury resort made of salt on the flats, and will provide one of the most unique and unforgettable travel experiences of a lifetime.
As with any other developing country, it's important that you take any precautions necessary to ensure your safety while traveling through Bolivia.
