Flights to Bolivia | Compare Low-Cost Fares at Skyscanner

The Plurinational State of Bolivia is a landlocked nation in South America, one of the few in the world that is classified as a mega-diverse country. Within the country’s area of 1 million square kilometres so much ecological, biological and geological diversity can be found that one can ex-perience all sorts of climates and scenery just travelling from region to region. With the Andes Mountains, savannahs, fertile valleys, the world’s largest salt flat, and even the humid Amazon rainforest open to exploration within Bolivia, there’s no shortage of things to see and experience in this amazing country.

Bolivia is bordered by Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil and Peru, and has a population of more than 10 million. The country - due to its diverse peoples and plurinationalistic nature - has 36 of-ficial languages, with Spanish being the most commonly spoken one. Travellers are advised to pick up some basic Spanish words and phrases before visiting as English is not commonly spoken (as of June 2015).

Getting around

When getting around a large country like Bolivia, the fastest and most efficient way is always by air - the country’s domestic airlines provide a comprehensive and efficient network of routes through the sky to most major Bolivian cities. Air fares are relatively inexpensive, and the cost savings in time may prove to be well worth it.

Otherwise, long-distance buses are readily available and go to almost every inhabited district. Do note, however, that many of Bolivia’s roads are not paved - meaning they may be very bumpy - so those with travel sickness may find the ride uncomfortable. Strikes, protests and delays in public transport are also relatively commonplace within the country (as of June 2015), so be sure to check and double-check the status of your ride before leaving.

What to see and do

No trip to Bolivia is complete without a look at the world famous Salar de Uyuni, the planet’s largest salt flat and Bolivia’s top tourist attraction by far. Covering an area of more than 10,000 square kilometres, the Salar de Uyuni is a dazzlingly white, reflective salt desert containing more than 9 billion tonnes of salt. The plains stretch as far as the eye can see, with a landscape consist-ing of intricately interlocked hexagonal salt tiles and dotted with little pyramid salt mounds that were scraped up by miners. Formed when prehistoric lakes dried out, the Salar de Uyuni is more than 10,000 years old and is one of the world’s most important reserves of salt and lithium.
