Bolivia uses 220 volts, 50 cycle electricity in most locations (110 volts, 50 cycles in La Paz and a few other areas) and uses plug types A (two flat parallel pins) and C (two round pins). Travelers will usually require a voltage converter for 110-volt devices. Ask your Operations Coordinator or check with the hotel to be sure of the voltage.
Staple foods in the highlands include potatoes, corn, rice, and meat dishes, often with a spicy sauce. In jungle areas, fresh fruits, fried plantains, and other vegetables are also common. Though vegetarians can be easily accommodated in all areas, options typically leave out the meat rather than adding vegetarian mainstays such as tofu, beans, or nuts.
Since Bolivia is a relatively undiscovered destination, groups tend to be very small. These tours are a great choice for travelers seeking to get off the beaten path and travel in an area without a lot of other tourists. We run our tours with a minimum of two travelers so you may end up with a private guide for your chosen departure.
You can book your Bolivia tour at any time. Since Bolivia is relatively undiscovered, availability is often better for these tours than many of our other destinations. Even last-minute bookings can often be accommodated! We usually recommend that you wait to book your international flights until after your tour is confirmed. The sooner that you book your tour, the sooner you can take advantage of flight deals as they become available.
Tap water is generally not safe to drink in Bolivia. Bottled water is readily available for purchase at tourist sites, hotels, and restaurants. Don’t forget to use bottled water when brushing your teeth as well! Ice is not always made with boiled/ bottled water. Order your beverages without ice (“sin heel”) or ask your tour leader if the ice is safe in a particular restaurant.

Time for travel is during the dry season (April to November) for most activities that are better suited to take advantage of the better climatic conditions, but we offer many trips year-round. For most trips, the dry season is best because the weather is stable and the roads are in good condition. Depending on your activity and region you are traveling to, weather, road or river conditions may warrant travel only during certain seasons. Please ask us for specifics.
Being in shape is a relative term. We always prefer that people arrive in Bolivia in the best physical shape possible for their activity. But, some trips don’t require a lot of physical effort but more of a mental attitude that is agile at dealing with surprises that may come along. The best is to be physically fit with a positive mental attitude. Of course, some trips require top physical and mental conditioning. When dealing with the altitude we highly recommend that you arrive in good cardiovascular shape and quit smoking before you arrive. Please ask us for more specifics if you have any doubts about a trip you may want to be part of.
