If you have about two weeks for a vacation in Bolivia, here is my suggestion on what to see and do. It will cover all the highlights, such as Lake Titicaca, the Amazon rainforest, the Salar de Uyuni and the historic cities of Potosí and Sucre.
Starting your trip to Bolivia in the city of La Paz, which is in the clouds, I suggest you spend a couple of nights here. As La Paz is at an altitude of around 3660m, it takes time to get used to the air. The beautiful San Francisco church and the famous witch market, where you can buy anything from the usual tourist tattoos to the fetuses of dry llamas, will keep you busy for a day. Another day on your tour of Bolivia you can organize a cycling adventure along the most dangerous road in the world (it’s worth it if you have the nerves).
Copacabana is just 4 hours by bus from La Paz and is a great place to spend the night and explore the beauty of Lake Titicaca and Isla del Sol.
Back in La Paz, you can continue your vacation in Bolivia by organizing a 3 or 4 day adventure in the jungle and the pampas around Rurrenabaque. This is a 20-hour bus trip from La Paz, so the 1-hour flight is a much better option. The wildlife observation opportunities here are excellent, with monkeys, sloths, alligators, capybaras and anacondas often seen.
From La Paz you can take the night bus south to Uyuni. From Uyuni you can organize day trips to visit the largest salt flats in the world. The Salar de Uyuni is simply impressive and an unmissable place at any party in Bolivia. If you have an additional couple of days, you can organize a 2-night 4×4 trip in the salt flats, as well as volcanoes, colorful lakes, hot springs and surrounding geysers.

Back in Uyuni, it is a 6-hour bus trip to the highest city in the world, Potosí. Potosí was one of the richest cities on earth due to the abundance of silver in the surrounding hills, and while you are here on your tour of Bolivia, you will have the opportunity to visit one of the current silver mines and experience what life is like . for the miners
After a couple of nights in Potosí, it is a 3-hour bus trip to Sucre, the official capital of Bolivia, and a definite must-see. at any party in Bolivia. Sucre is a beautiful city, with a lot of churches and museums, excellent accommodation and much to see and do in the surroundings, such as the dinosaur park that houses the largest collection of dinosaur footprints in the world.
The last is the largest city in Bolivia, Santa Cruz. There is a relatively large international airport to return home or fly back to La Paz. But before doing so, since the weather is nice and warm, I recommend spending a day or two here simply relaxing and making any last-minute souvenir purchases you may need before your tour of Bolivia ends.
