Travelling

Getting around Bolivia is relatively easy and travelling into the mountains generally is quick – within a day – from La Paz.

Long distance travel between main cities is cheap and easy on flotas (buses) with the cama (bed) service being comfortable even for very long trips. Tickets for these are available from the main bus stations which are usually easily found in whatever city you may be in. Tickets are usually able to be purchased only the day before you travel. Travel agencies will also buy tickets for you at a little more cost.

Between cities and towns, buses, minibuses and trucks are options. The area pages will have info on local transport options. These will occasionally change in price and timing but we’ll try to update things as we find out.
