What You Can Expect
  • Santa Cruz offers a variety of natural landscapes with high biodiversity. The heritage is reflected in its architectural, historical monuments and its culture is expressed through the ancient customs and traditions, arts, crafts, living villages and the local people. All this makes Santa Cruz an authentic place, where diversity and adventure promises an unforgettable experience for the visitor. 
  • Let´s discover the important neighbourhoods and markets of La Paz experiencing its smells, tastes and scenery. Let yourself be impressed by the majestic spiritual and political centre of the Tiwanaku Culture.
  • Copacabana with its lovely surrounding area invites you to relax and enjoy the local life spirit. From here you visit by catamaran the legendary Sun Island on the Lake Titicaca. Expect one of the most beautiful experiences of your lifetime. Submerge into ancient history and visit exotic places with friendly people in a colourful environment.
  • Can you imagine a surface of 12,000 km2, at an elevation of 3663 m of salt flat? Uyuni is an amazing site which presents you even more wonders, like the Incahuasi Island, a special habitat on a volcanic outcropping covered with gigantic cacti towering 10 meters tall. Rising out of this salt desert to touch the sky at 5000 meters are mountains and volcanoes, like Mount Toroni and Mount Tunupa, upon which you can witness incredible sunsets and find plenty of minerals, particularly lithium since Uyuni possesses the world’s most significant deposits of that element.
  • Discover the city of Sucre which is Bolivia’s most beautiful city and the symbolic heart of the nation.
  • Now get to know Potosi, which was called the Silver City and during the boom years, when the metal must have seemed inexhaustible, it became the largest and wealthiest city in the Americas.
