Bolivia Itinerary - Comments?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for late October (yes I am aware of the current situation). I would appreciate any comments or suggestions you Fodorites can offer.

Friday - Arrive early in Santa Cruz on LAB flight from Miami, fly to Sucre on AeroSur, afternoon tour of Sucre
Saturday - Up early, check out more of Sucre, mid-day take a shared taxi to Potosi, tour Mint and possibly cathedral
Sunday - walk around Potosi, I don't expect to much to be open, bus around noon to Uyuni
Monday - Begin 3 night trip to Salar & Sud Lipez
Thursday - return to Uyuni, leave by train around 11:30 pm to Oruro
Friday - bus from Oruro to La Paz, afternoon tour of city
Saturday - Tour to Lake Titicaca, stopping at Tiawanku Ruins, overnight Copacabana
Sunday - boat ride to north end of Isla del Sol, walk south exploring ruins along the way, overnight on island
Monday - more exploration in the morning, afternoon bus ride back to La Paz
Tuesday - Fly Home

I would like to hear experiences from anyone who has done and bus of train trips on their own, especially the routes mentioned. I have read multiple accounts of taxi drivers working with the fake police to rob tourists. Any suggestions or experiences?

Thanks, Kelly
