Some consider May to October the best time to visit Bolivia as this is the dry season, however prices will be higher and attractions will be busier. During August and September there’s typically agricultural work which results in a lot of farmland being burned and so we don’t recommend these months for travel.
What is the best way to travel around Bolivia?
Cross country buses are cheap and useful if you have a tight budget but be prepared for long journeys. Domestic flights are frequent and well-priced but these prices fluctuate in high season be very cheap but can leave with long journeys and stopovers. Last minute domestic flights can be quite cheap so are recommended if you have a lot of ground to cover, but remember prices fluctuate dramatically depending on the season.
What vaccinations do I need for Bolivia?
If you have been in a country at high risk of yellow fever, you will need to prove you have had the vaccination. We advise that you take out comprehensive travel insurance for your stay, practice strict mosquito bite avoidance at all times and seek pre-travel health advice from your provider 6-8 weeks in advance of travel.
Do I need a visa to visit Bolivia?
No, Australian citizens do not require a visa to enter Bolivia. You will be granted an initial 30 day stay which you can extend two times for a further 30 days, free of charge. Remember, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the intended length of stay. We would recommend checking this before you depart in case rules change.
