Other Money-Saving Tips

Usually the peak season for tourism starts in June and continues through the month of August to early September. This peak season includes all the major European as well as North American summer holidays, and most of the major Bolivian festivals happen during this time, so all prices are generally higher. The period from May to October is the non-peak season and is the cheapest time to fly to Bolivia. Flying on weekdays is cheaper and less crowded, and some airlines offer additional discounts for advance booking.

Bolivia is the perfect destination for a vacation. The large number of attractions and enjoyable weather make for an excellent combination, just perfect for couples or families.
