I am considering a visit to Bolivia since I am planning a trip to Peru very soon (Cusco). Due to a lack of flights, I was thinking fly Cusco to La Paz, then take a 13 hour bus to Sucre, check it out and then check out the Uyuni salt mines via a 9 hour bus ride. While all this sounds good in theory, I don´t know how it would work in practice.
There seems to be much political upheaval in Bolivia these days. Would I be putting my welfare at a significant risk by visiting Bolivia now? Should I wait some years for things to calm down? Also, is it true that strikes and water floods would likely-for a lack of a better word-trap me in the country for weeks or even months?
Lastly, how reputable are the airlines in Bolivia? I do not like flying with unsafe planes and/or planes that are poorly maintained.
