Skift Take

Despite being the continent’s most isolated and poorest country, Bolivia continues to pull active tourists with its bio-diversity and outdoor adventures like the Yungas Loop’s 3-day mountain/jungle bike trek.

Looking at a map of South America, Bolivia is the little landlocked shape roughly in the centre – the heart of the continent. With the soaring wild peaks of the Andes quickly plummeting into the jungle’s steamy insides, Bolivia is one of the most geographically and biologically diverse countries on the planet. Often only known for its connection to cocaine and as the resting place of Butch Cassidy and Che Guevara, Bolivia is, in fact, a traveller’s hotspot. This country is at once an eye-opening, jaw-dropping, baffling and beautiful destination; an incredible place to explore and a highlight on the Latin American Gringo Trail.
