Travel and Tourism - Bolivia - November 2016

“Bolivia’s unspoiled, scenic beauty and rich culture has long attracted backpackers, but, with infrastructure improvements and a newly UNESCO-listed capital, it is poised to become a South American hotspot.”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst

A landlocked country in central South America, the Plurinational State of Bolivia is double the size of France, and slightly less than three times the size of Montana. Bordered by Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, Peru and Brazil, Bolivia is a synthesis of the best of the region, according to the Ministry of Tourism, with the Amazon to the west and the mountains and valleys of the Andes to the east, and a rich indigenous culture. Despite its enormous, untapped, tourism potential, Bolivia has traditionally lagged behind its more prosperous neighbours Chile, Brazil and Peru in terms of international tourism.
