Bouncing Into Bolivia – Lake Titicaca, Potosi and Salar de Uyuni

Bolivia is one of the world’s secret destinations, I would say. When people think of heading to South America, they don’t necessarily think to head to Bolivia, preferring Brazil or Peru perhaps, or even Argentina. But I would have to say as a place to travel, Bolivia is the most interesting South American country I have been too.

It has Lake Titicaca in the north, with the stunning Isla de Sol to hike around, and the leafy Copacabana on its shores. Although I didn’t stop in La Paz, it’s hilly and looks really interesting, and Potosi gives the visitor the opportunity to tour a Silver Mine whilst guided by ex-miners. Then there is the Salar de Uyuni, salt flats that go for mile after mile after mile! And around that area of course you have volcanoes, mountains, geysers and flamingos.

Finally I have put together footage from four years ago into a video showcasing what I saw in Bolivia. Unfortunately I didn’t take any footage in Sucre, but otherwise I’m pretty happy with the video – watch out though, there is pan-flute music in it!

  1. I agree with you, Bolivia is not always taken into account as a primary destination in Latin America. After having visited other countries, however, it appears Bolivia has many interesting places to visit, Sucre, Potosi, Uyuni, but also La Paz or the Jesuit missions in the Santa Cruz region. Although the country is relatively less developed than its neighbours, the tourist infrastructure is already good and quite cheap.

  2. Bolivia is underrated compared to its larger South American cousins like Brazil, Argentina, or Peru. But I’ve heard incredible things about it, especially its Lake Titicaca and Salar de Uyuni. It’s a place I’m dying to visit, and I hope to go some day. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous shots of Bolivia!
