When to go to Bolivia

Boasting a variety of jaw-dropping landscapes and climatic extremes, Bolivia can be enjoyed by travellers all year round. Blue skies and dry weather occur from April to October, perfect for visiting Lake Titicaca and the salt Flats, although temperatures do drop at night, particularly in the desert. In the Amazon you can expect high temperatures and humidity pretty much all year long.
