Fly to La Paz, one of Bolivia’s two capital cities, and the seat of Bolivian government. Enjoy the city’s mix of native and colonial flavors as you explore areas like Sagarnaga Street, The Witches’ Market, and Calle Jaen. Enjoy Andean folk music at one of the La Paz’s many Peñas, or music clubs, and take a quick trip just outside the city to see the surreal landscape of Moon Valley. Head over to Sucre, or the “White City,” Bolivia’s constitutional capital and a place best known for its lovely tranquil atmosphere. Stroll the city’s center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and enjoy the architecture of spots like Plaza 25 de Mayo and Parque Bolivar.
Learn about Bolivia traveling to Potosí, home of the richest silver mines in the world, the city was once one of the wealthiest in the Americas. Learn about the history of the Cerro Rico mines and silver production at Casa Nacional de Moneda, the former royal mint, and take a visit to one of the cooperative mines. The city also offers some architectural splendor in the form of Baroque cathedrals and monasteries that have been named UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
What may set Bolivia apart may not even be it’s pristine cities and high concentration of pure Native American culture, but perhaps the otherworldly landscape of Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, and after a rain shower, the worlds largest mirror. This strange white landscape is a favorite of photographers and flamingos alike, and a stay in a retro style luxury camper or a hotel made completely out of salt will certainly leave a lasting impression.
